Four Hundred Twenty 

. . . The beginning of four learning years. 
Besides the academic knowledge came a 
special awareness of the all-too-often 
horrible cost of Freedom. 


Four Hundred Twenty-Two 

The beginning also brought an immediate 
initiation into that now defunct semi-human 
state known as Plebe-hood.

Still, there was never a question of lack of 
interest on the part of the Brigade or lack of 
effort on the part of the team. Win or lose, the 
Army-Navy game meant throats hoarse from 
cheering, legs tired from standing, shoulders 
sloped from the weights of overcoats and a 
team battered from conflict.

_ :■ 


As our troops withdraw from Vietnam, and as all America looks 
forward to the end of this tragic war, the plight of our missing men 
becomes increasingly more urgent. 

We must never again repeat the shocking tragedy of having not 
demanded a full accounting of our men prior to the cessation of 
hostilities as we did in North Korea. To this date our government is 
still attempting to secure information on the 389 men whom they 
had evidence were prisoners from that conflict. For 18 years the 
Communists have steadfastly refused to discuss the fate of these 

This time we must have a full accounting of our men, via a neutral 
international inspection team such as the International Red Cross, to 
determine which men are prisoners. In the event of death the next of 
kin must receive full official information on the circumstances, 
cause, burial and grave identification. 

Although we as Americans may hold many varied personal views on 
the purpose, morality and terms of settlement of the war in 
Southeast Asia, we are strongly united in our mutual concern for the 
men we have sent overseas. 

To this end we would like to make clear that whatever course a 
settlement of the war may take we will not be able to accept any 
final ending that does not include neutral and acceptable methods 
which will account for those men whose fate is otherwise unknown. 


Four Hundred Fifty-Five 


Over 1 ,500 Americans are either Prisoners Of War or Missing In Action in 
Southeast Asia. 

Aside from the inhumane treatment witnessed by those few who have 
returned, the most tragic aspect is that most of the families of these men 
do not know if their sons, husbands, or fathers are alive or dead. Hanoi 
won't tell them. 

This bracelet honors the man whose name is inscribed and includes 
the date he was lost. It should be worn with the vow that it will not be 
removed until the day the Red Cross is allowed into Hanoi and can 
assure his family of his status and that he receives the humane treatment 
due all men.

All too often studies had to be sandwiched 
between the other requirements and 
responsibilities of Academy life. Even so, to 
most, the Admiral's 30-hours-of-study-per- 
week edict came as an after-the-fact and 
even a minimum guideline.

Coming to the Academy from Collinsville, Il- 
linois, the "Wop" established his image as a 
hard worker from the beginning. Majoring in 
Mechanical Engineering, Buzzie s study hours 
were always well used, while he always man- 
aged to find time to keep a small business 
going on the side. Active in numerous intramu- 
ral sports, his favorites were soccer and bas- 
ketball. His cure for any problem was a good 
ol' spaghetti and meatball dinner with lots of 
garlic bread. Earning still another nickname at 
an Air Force party early 2/c year, the "Cobra" 
soon found ways to spend his weekends. In 
hopes of fulfilling his dream to be an engineer, 
Leo hopes to go Marine Corps all the way. No 
matter what he does, the Wop's personality 
and sincerity will help him to be a great suc- 
cess as an officer. 


Dave, the pride and joy of Oceanside, New 
York, strolled into Navy after a short sojourn 
at NAPS. He quickly established himself as an 
outstanding athlete, by starting on both the 
Plebe football team and lacrosse team. As a 
Youngster, this gallopin' mid-fielder earned an 
N* on Navy's national championship lax team. 
Along with physical ability, "DAVE-0" was 
endowed with uncanny rhetoric skills, which 
he definitely exhibited on many occasions. 
When not preparing for a quick bolt "to the 
island," Dave devoted a great deal of effort to 
the academic chores of a Political Science stu- 
dent. Aspiring to someday becoming CINC of 
the DeBaun Armada, David will make a Naval 
officer of the highest caliber. 


Making his way to the Academy from the 
Deep South "Fraz" never lost his love of coun- 
try music or sweet talking southern belles. If 
not engrossed in the study of partying, the Pe- 
lahatchie flash could be found either on the 
track where he earned several varsity letters 
as a quarter miler or in the rack discovering 
the philosophical implications of sleep. Never 
known to lose any argument, his stubbornness 
was turned to the study of Political Science. 
Engineering and Navigation just never had a 
chance in a world of sports, cars, football bowl 
games and any type of book. After four years 
of warming up, tne boy from Mississippi ea- 
gerly looks forward to the big race on tne out- 
side ... or the other inside. In a world of com- 
promising principles, "Fraz" may be at a disad- 
vantage, but nonetheless will never be put 
down — A true "Rebel" to the end.

Jim, also known as "The Toasti," "The Rab- 
bit," or "Babs," was First Company's contribu- 
tion to D&B. He also devoted his musical tal- 
ents to the Midshipmen's Concert Band. As a 
History major taking Russian, Jim spent a 
summer in Europe studying the language. Jim 
:ame to Navy without a great interest in 
sports, but quickly became active on the com- 
pany fieldball team, leading it on with his in- 
spinng battlecry — "When in doubt, wreck 
em." Jim made the softball team more excit- 
ng when he tried to apply the same battle cry 
;o that sport. Babs also served as Company 
Rep at class meetings, taking an active part in 
he POW campaign. Jim is looking forward to 
I promising career on a DD. 


Coming from a small southern town called 
Danville, Va., "DC" quickly established his 
reputation as a Southern gentleman. Known 
for his long and arduous hours of study DC 
managed to make Sup's List as a Youngster. 
His dragging habits are strange but no one can 
deny that "good looks" is a prerequisite that 
all his girls tell, as indicated by the two (count 
'em 2) girls he had for June Week Plebe year. 
Squash and soccer remain two of his favorite 
pastimes when he isn't lapping the instruction 
pool. Dave hopes to go Navy Air, but 2 years in 
the Fleet may multiply into a career of riding 
the waves. 



B Barry or "Doc," arrived at Navy after a dar- 
" ng escape from life as an Army brat, majoring 
n Aero, "Doc" claims a desire to fly. However, 
le is known to take long looks at the "black 
;ho€s" and those funny guys in green. The aca- 
iemics never seemed to bother "Doc." Al- 
' ,hough never one to wear out his books "Doc" 
ilways came out near the top. Striving to find 
lis greatest athletic ability. Doc" ran through 
)aseball, fencing and football before settling 
)n fieldball. Barry also demonstrated an out- 
itanding professional prowess aboard the 
fP's. Doc will make a fine officer, no matter 
vhich branch of the service he selects. 


Whether it was due to someone's typograph- 
ical error or a friend's morbid sense of humor. 
Dale was dubbed the nickname "Fetus." Fetus 
came to Canoe U as the big stud fresh out of 
Marmion Military Academy. During the old 
days at Marmion, Dale attained the coveted 
position of Company Commander. But soon 
found out the phrase "Once a stud, always a 
stud" just doesn't apply. Dale struggled 
through a tough Plebe year and sometime mid- 
way thru Youngster year he found "himself" 
and a girl. The girl was Cheryl and Dale, the 
Midwest conservative, maintained a very close 
but cautious relationship with his new love. A 
man who states he loves both the sea and a 
woman, is headed for trouble; but he that at- 
tempts to fondle both is a fool. Our "Intelli- 
gent" young friend went "Navy Line." 


"Moose," hailing from sunny Southern Cali- 
fornia, Quickly learned that the Navy severely 
crampea his civilian style. Always up" for a 
Igood time, with his guitar in hand and a 
I 'chickie" trailing close behind. Moose made 
the most of his weekends here at the Academy. 
However, he is truly a dedicated athlete com- 
peting in gymnastics since junior high, and as 
1 Youngster he won an N*, followed by a sec- 
3nd N* First Class year. Moose also managed 
.0 make the Dean's List and to be active in the 
J'.C.A. as well. He has been a real asset to the 
Brigade, and he loqks forv^ard to the Navy. 


Known affectionately as the "Ape," Chic 
came to the Academy from Canastota, New 
York. After a bitter struggle with his Plebe 
summer segundos and always at leaning rest, 
things started to fall into place. Chic managed 
to win his first of 3 letters Youngster year, in 
wrestling. Holding the Academy record for 
knee operations (3 times) however, didn't keep 
him off the mats for long. Even with sports, he 
still found time for a respectable QPR. Being 
one of the 3 charter members of the "Elks 
Club" however, he was obligated to use his lib- 
erty to the greatest extent, winning a "Black 
N" for extra effort. You could always count on 
Chic to liven up any party or hit the beach for 
a "few" beers. A girl, his green Corvette and 
graduation were always foremost in his mind. 
The Navy will be gaining a fine officer when 
Chic puts on those new shoulder boards.

Hailing from the green hills of Pennsylvania 
"Greenman" entered the Academy on a soccer 
'scholarship.' From the moment he arrived, he 
struggled and evaded the Academic Board but 
it was usually tight. When not found on the 
soccer field or basketball court, he was busy 
breaking many records for rack time. He man- 
aged though to struggle through many a game 
of pinochle without drawing many 'dinks!' A 
member of the ELKs Club his fondest memory 
was provided by a departed classmate, Mr. D. 
M. Saunders, now at the University of North. 


Dan, hailing from Newark, Ohio, came to 
the Academy anxious to do well. He soon 
found out everyone else had the same idea and 
those two dens of iniquity, rack and wardroom, 
quickly found a new customer. Loving to so- 
cialize, "Fat Mac" has made many lasting 
friendships with his classmates, many of whom 
might say the B. S. he received at graduation 
might stand for something other than the 
usual. Never playing on a losing intramural 
squad and bemg on many brigade "Power- 
houses" were his claims to fame. His favorite 
team, as everyone knows, is the buckeyes, and 
his favorite four letter word is "Jill." Dan 
hopes to fly after graduation, and will be an 
outstanding Naval officer wherever he goes. 


Raised in a multitude of hometowns, as a 
Navy Junior, Hank knew at an early age that 
USNA was the place. Never an academic slash, 
the "Rat" as he became known because of his 
affinity for cheese, loved sports, especially sail- 
ing the 44's. Always a faithful ELK he firmly 
believed in the motto "you only go round once 
in life so . . ." Hank has managed to live life to 
the fullest never letting his schooling interfere 
with his education. Following graduation 
Hank aided by the knowledge he has gained, 
the people he has understood, the dedication 
and desire developed and that certain girl from 
the South Country — will make an excellent 
Naval officer and a good solid leader. 

Five Hundred Eighteen 


Gary, hailing from "Potato Country," came 
to Annapolis from Mountain Home High 
School in Mountain Home, Idaho. Gary arrived 
at the Academy with a desire to fly and the be- 
lief that when given a choice take the easy 
way. "Gross," as he was tagged by friends, 
didn't believe in hurting his eyes by over 
studying and if he wasn't studying you needed 
to look no farther than the rack or the nearest 
pinochle game to find him. Never one to turn 
down a femme or a Budweiser, "Gross" en- 
joyed his membership as an ELK, that special 
breed of animal. After graduation Gary looks 
forward to a "fun and zest" career in Navy 


Horse came to the Academy via the USNR 
and a prep year at Admiral Farragut Acade- 
my. Navy s gift to the Engineering world he 
always stayed one step ahead of the AcBoard. 
Never one to pass up a good time, he was an 
ELK in good standing and a veteran of the il- 
lustrious charge of Worden Field. He earned 
his "Black N" 2/c Summer. His activities at 
the Academy were as varied as his interests, 
including boxing, sailing, scuba, the Sports- 
man's Club and company soccer and fiefdball. 
Looking back on the Academy Horse will al- 
ways remember the "Beans" and his famous 
sayings. Following graduation he will be found 
on the bridge of a DD or in the cockpit of a 


John came to the Academy straight from 
West High School in Rhode Island, their first 
student to come to Navy. A star athlete while 
in high school. Keens became an avid partici- 
pant in intramurals and could be found on the 
basketball court during his free time. Not sa- 
tisfied with his performance of Plebe year. 
Keens buckled down and held over a 3.0 aver- 
age from Youngster year on. Through valida- 
tion, he was able to stay out of the Bull depart- 
ment until first class year, with most of his 
time being spent in Chauvenet Hall trying to 
get a handle on those theoretical Math courses 
required for his major. Although somewhat 
quiet, he can always be counted on to get the 
job done. Keens hopes to be accepted for Nu- 
clear Power school after graduation. 


Known as John, Sean or the inevitable 
'Mac," depending on whether you're his girl, 
■oommate or just a casual acquaintance. Com- 
ng to USNA the bright eyed son of an old 
IXad, Mac was the typical high school kid, with 
I liking for long hair and a disliking for orders 
— a combination which has kept him in good 
tanding with his seniors (and provided his 
;lassmates with laughs) for the last four years. 
Jpon graduation Mac intends to take off the 
'Javy blue in exchange for Marine green (with 
in interval lasting just long enough for him to 
Ion a tux and a wedding band). The ultimate 
.im of this young "Green Meanie" is a law de- 
Tee and duty with the Judge Advocate Gener- 
.1. Wherever (or however) he ends up in the 
/Orps, Mac is certain to be a fine officer (if he 
an learn to bit« the bullet without getting a 
cot instead). 


Having been raised in the great state of 
Maine, John arrived at the Academy straight 
from high school. He spent most of his winters 
here looking for snow; he never did find much. 
As for the academics he has always studied 
hard and managed to stay above 2.00. Most of 
the time John could be found in his room or in 
a Physics Lab. John was known as Phantom by 
the other members of the company. He earned 
that name by being hard to find most of the 
time. His plans for the future include enjoying 
life and whatever it brings, as well as Marine 

Five Hundred Nineteen 


Two years in YP Squadron convinced him 
that service selection night wouldn't see him in 
Surface Line. Second Class summer convinced 
him that Navy air wasn't the place for some- 
one seeking responsibility. All this confirmed 
him in his choice of Marine Corps. Known as 
the "Pacaderm" after Second Class year, his 
philosophy became "anything is legal if you 
don't get caught." His company officers knew 
him as "Yo Yo" because of his ups and downs 
on the grease ladder — ranging from #28 
Plebe year to #5 Second Class year. What can 
best sum up his stay at the Academy "He 
came, he played the game and he left." 


Born in Phoenix, Arizona and now living in 
Tucson, Slude's came to USNA by chance. 
Never seeing a ship before and hoping never to 
see one agam (aft«r joining the blown lunch 
on a YP" Club) he hopes to become a Marine. 
Grades and swim tests came slow and low but 
he could run, and usually did, from shower 
parties and Jimmy Legs. Mai plans to bite the 
bullet in June of '72 by weanng green while 
sporting a ring on his finger. After a few rubs 
on the magic lamp we will see what the "jean- 
nie" has in store for him. 


Dave, affectionately called "the Cheese- 
man," hails from Park Kidge, Illinois, where he 
began his apprenticeship as a ladies' man at 
Maine South High School. What can be said 
about a fellow on the Dean's List, a N* winner, 
and a four striper; except that he has not yet 
succeeded in locating a young lady who is 
beautiful, speaks French, skis and plays tennis. 
Switz logically decided that France would be 
the most appealing hunting ground. After a 
Foreign Excnange Cruise and a pair of sum- 
mer leaves there, he may find his elusive quar- 
ry. Apart from his social enigma, the quiet, 
mild-mannered Switzer could always be seen 
hard at work. He is destined to be a great asset 
to the Naval Service.

j Claiming California, Maryland, as his home- 
town, "Billy" is no stranger to this man's 
I Navy. Having been a Navy Junior most of his 
' life, his main ambition is to become a "lifer" as 
; a naval aviator. An Applied Math major. Bill 
has had no trouble with academics, provided he 
stays out of the Bull Department. His interests 
run the gamut from YP's and drama to swim- 
; ming and judo. His contributions to the Naval 
i Service should be wide and varied. 



Littleton High School, in Littleton, Colora- 
do, sent Steve to the Academy upon gradua- 
tion. "Sums," as he is better known, quickly 
showed himself to be one of the leaders of his 
;lass. Forced to give up Navy football because 
)f recurrent shoulder injuries, he dedicated his 
iports time to intramurals, especially basket- 
)all. He has always been one of the company's 
)utstanding team players. A perfect blend of 
itudy hours and pad hours have kept his QPR 
veil above 3.0. However, his mind is sometimes 
listracted by thoughts of a certain "Miss" 
vhom he plans to marry upon graduation. He 
lopes his next five years will be divided be- 
ween her and his second love — the Marine 


Spud, a former Yankee, claims Atlanta, "an 
oasis in a land of red clay and red necks," as 
home. Known in high school for building com- 
puters and dedication on the football field, 
Spud had visions of more of the same at 
USNA. Combining small size (thus, the nick- 
name) with slowness, Spud stuck it out behind 
the Green Fence and considers his brief game 
experiences a success. Spud will try anything 
once, for a profit ... or for a loss, but never 
for nothing. His exploits include cycling the 
Pyrenees (before someone stole the cycle) and 
business deals that were always doomed from 
the start. Through validation and overloading 
a Systems Engineering major, he prepped for 
a demanding 1/c program: "Coastmg, A Sys- 
tems Approach." This background and sporad- 
ic Sup's list appearances should qualify Spud 
for Nuclear Power School upon graduation. 


Following in the footsteps of his Ail-Ameri- 
can brother, and inspiring a younger brother 
too, Dennis is a part of the Supko tradition 
that lacrosse fans will not soon forget. Coming 
just down the block from his home in Brooklyn 
Park, Maryland, "Supsta" took a job at the 
Academy as a fulltime lacrosse star. During 
his off hours, he found time to demonstrate a 
unique flair for living; girls and wild times 
being right up his alley. Choosing the 2.0 path

friends and add a touch of humor to Bancroft 
Hall life that endeared him to his classmates. 
The Navy has a fine leader on its hands, but

Lad hails from decadent Shreveport, Louisi- 
na, but now lists Minnesota as his home, with 
itermittent stops in Lugano, Switzerland, and 
ydney, Australia. Managing maximum re- 
Jlts with minimum effort found him on 
lean's List more often than not. A Systems 
ingineer. Lad lists basketball, water sports, 
:nnis, anything outdoors, and Minnesota 
leerleaders as his top interests. When not 
Jasick on cruise or airsick in Pensacola, "the

>chle game, or praising one of his heroes: 
ew Alcindor, Hugh Hefner, or D. M. Saun-

lis easygoing ELK. 


The "Weasel" or just plain "Weas," whose 
nickname fits him perfectly, arrived at Navy, 
bright eyes and fuzzy cheeked and fresh from 
high school in Alexandria, Virginia. The young 
aspirant's first weeks at the Academy were 
pretty rough. Plebe summer his roommate de- 
cided he didn't like the hairstyles and went 
home leaving Weasel with a private room for 
almost a month. Never a canaidate for the Ac 
Board (though he seemed to be trying like 
crazy) Weasel always had time for football, a 
quick game of pinochle, or a little rack. Except 
for a few short (but fulfilling) romances, 
Weasel's main love has always come in a pop 
top can. After graduation Weas is hoping on a 
destroyer for two years, and then intends to 
take Pensacola by storm. All in all, the Navy's 
going to gain a fine officer in Weasel (unless 
prohibition comes back).

Well, I left mv happy home to see what I 
could find out. I left my folks and friends with 
the aim to clear my mind out. Well, I hit the 
rowdy road, and many kinds I met there. Many 
stories told of the way to get there. Then I 
found myself alone, hoping someone would 
miss me. Thinking about my home and the last 
woman to kiss me. But sometimes you have to 
moan when nothing seems to suit you. But 
nevertheless you know you're locked towards 
the future. Then I found my head one day, 
when I wasn't evfen tryin'. And here I have to 
say 'cause there is no use in lying'. Yes, the an- 
swer lies within, so why not take a look 
now . . . 


Roc came out of the hills of Memphis, Tenn. 
and for 4 years he's been wondering why he 
left. This rowdy "reb" is kept busy by the 
Aerospace Engineering people, the concert 
band leaders, and the guardians of intramural 
football and baseball. Rotating constantly 
around the 3.0 mark, Roc has found time to en- 
gage in the more pleasurable aspects of the 
human race, featuring a few choice local 
honeys and various Southern belles. When he's 
not leaving a trail of broken hearts throughout 
the length and breadth of Severna Park, Md. 
or fuming over that one drift factor on his 
Thermo lab, he's helping in the Academy's rou- 
tine. When asked about thoughts of heaven 
and an after-life Roc's only reply is "The F-14 
is as close as I'll ever get." Good luck to Robert 
as he carries on the traditions of the "good ol' 


Paul came to USNA from New York City on 
the day before his high school class graduated. 
Although he majored in Foreign Affairs, 
Paul's deep interest in his Russian ancestry 
and foreign languages occupied most of his 
time. Paul enjoyed nature and the elements — 
and sports such as parachuting and sailing, — 
which would put him in contact with them. His 
extracurricular activities included the Russian 
Club, the Foreign Affairs Club, Chairmanship 
of the Christmas Card Committee, and Desir- 
ee. Paul's ECA's didn't leave him much time to 
excel in academics, but did make life at the 
Academy more interesting. Paul's ambition 
and spirit will surely stand him in good stead 
for his career in Navy line.

"Braz" came to the Academy from Garden 
City, N. Y., where he excelled in wrestling, la- 
crosse, and a wry wit. Although wrestling and 
lacrosse went their ways after Plebe year, his 
humor remained as a distinctive part of him. 
While at the Academy Pete turned on to skiing 
and became an avid member of the Ski Club. 
Other interests ranged from MTS and Judo 
Club to battalion wrestling, and lacrosse. Gen- 
erally, one to turn study hour into a merry 
game, he nevertheless had little problems with 
grades. A veteran of the perpetual "hack" 
squad Youngster year, he later gained a dubi- 
ous distinction as a hard core "circle" man. 
With a stint in line staring him in the face, 
Pete hopes to make the switch to Nuke subs at 
the first opportunity. 


.Steve came to Annapolis from Menominee 
Michig:an, and soon developed a distaste for 
the ntuals of Plebe year. Youngster year 
amply provided the social prerequisites for his 
final two years. A frequent visitor to the 
wardroom. Youngster wardroom that is he 
quickly acquired the talents that gained hi'm a 
reprular position at Main Office musters. In 
spite of these diversions, Steve managed to 
place consistently on the Sup's and Dean's 
Lists in quest of his major in Marine Engineer- 
ing- Afternoons were spent sailing, catching 
the football for the company heavyweight 
team or swinging a tennis racquet. His winter 
leaves were spent on the ski slopes. Steve's 
goal after graduation will be to fly Navy air 


"Dalbs" is fond of his "barefoot boy from 
California" image. Even after 4 years of sepa- 
ration, Brian is still true to his first love: his 
home state. Though, preferring to confine his 
amorous adventures to summer leave and 
home, "straight arrow " Dalby has become a 
mover with the locals on those weekends when 
he is not engaged in his running battle with 
the academic department. An athlete at heart, 
Brian played Plebe football, then settled on 
Plebe and varsity baseball for 2 years before 
deciding to grace the company's teams with his 
abilities. "Uncle Brian," as he is known to the 
Plebes, hopes to become a naval aviator but 
due to unforeseen circumstances ... he may 
be flying for the Marines or even driving 
boats. With his sincerity, dedication, and gen- 
eral good nature, Brian will be a welcome addi- 
tion to any wardroom. 


One of three first class in the company from 
Villa Park, Illinois, Bob is nevertheless a 
unique individual. Although sometime quiet 
and deep thinking, he has a fine sense of 
humor and the rare ability to laugh at himself 
as well as others. Bob's musical talents have 
involved him in choir. Glee Club, stage crew, 
and Musical Club Show. A strong competitor 
in intramural sports, Bob is also winning his 
fight with the Academic Department. Like 
many of us, Bob is anticipating Navy Line 
upon graduation, and also several years of 


Mike calls Bayonne, N. J. home and strongly 
resists any attempts to link it with the South 
Jersey swamps. Never one to let life at the 
Academy occupy much of his time, he has con- 
centrated on his outside interest while count- 
ing the days until graduation and his delivery 
to the 'greyhounds.' His tenure here has been 
divided between YP's, company sports, the 
Lucky Bag, and his fiancee, not always in that 
order. These were frequently superseded by 
worry for his marks which constantly hung 
around a 2.0 and made him a good bet for an- 
chor man. Taking the plunge e^rly, Mike was 
one of the first of our classmates to become en- 
gaged. Doing so 'Dead Week' of Plebe year he 
bravely suffered through the final 3 years 
wth her. Hopefully he will make up for them 
after graduation. Hard working and likable, 
Mike snould be a welcome addition to any ship 
as long as he is kept out of the engine room.

The "Boy from New York City" came to 
USNA fresh out of Bishop Loughlin High 
School in the heart of Brooklyn. An over- 
whelming success in his academic endeavors, 
Bob, a Foreign Affairs major, was often called 
in for special consultations with his "friends" 
in the Math and Science Departments. His in- 
dependent spirit and easygoing attitude did 
not go unnoticed as he was twice awarded the 
coveted Black "N" by the judges of Executive 
Department. The afternoons often found Bob 
in heated competition on company and battal- 
ion athletic teams with basketball and football 
as his favorites. Second class year brought him 
a new found interest in Academy life motivat- 
ing him to join the Newman Club and to volun- 
teer his services for NAFAC. Not above pur- 
suit of the opposite sex, he spent many a Sat- 
urday night on "the circle," braving inclement 
males. This patron of Jakes remains undecided 
regarding his service selection but it appears 
that either Navy Line or Marine Corps will get 
him in the end. 


Dan came to the Boat School from his home 
state of Mass., where he sometimes wishes he'd 
stayed after spending a few weekends in the 
hall restricting because of his sleeping habits. 
He has tried to make up for the college life he 
missed by going to Frederick or Ithaca every 
chance he gets. Still, he has settled down to 
work during the week and takes part in the 
program. He can be found most often in Mi- 
chelson Hall studying the mysteries of Physics, 
out on Farragut Field trying to clean the 
smoke out of his lungs, or, failing these, in his 
rack. Dan hopes to make nuclear power his 


Mike, sometimes better known as Harald, 
came to USNA from Bloomington, Ind. From 
the start of Plebe year Mike has spent many 
muddy hours marching and more dry hours 
practicing his music with the Drum and Bugle 
Corps. Generally working out on his own, he 
was always a bug about keeping physically fit. 
Being a fan of scuba diving, and, given the 
chance, to be found skydiving on the weekend, 
Mike worked hard to try to make skydiving an 
EC A here at the Academy. In the area of aca- 
demics, Mike with an Aero major, usually 
managed to get on the Sup's List. Graduation 
will probably find him wearing a Marine's

In his years here at Navy "Henry" had tried 
,0 keep but one thing of his happier past, his 
ndiviciuality. His attempts at this goal have 
seen joyfully made at the expense of forsaking 
!)ther goals which his more "squared away 
:lassmates" prize. He has fried but one person, 
limself. His time spent here at the Academy 
las differed greatly from happier days of his 
'outh in Hawaii, but being a charter member 
)f the cancerous click which has inhabited 3-3 
las partially compensated. In summarizing, 
'Henry" and his relationship to USNA one 
nust call upon a quotation given him by his 
nother: "I eat my peas with honey, I've done it 
.11 my life, it makes the peas taste funny, but 
t keeps them on the knife." 


Mike, hailing from the bright lights of Bal- 
timore, is a grad of Calvert Hall College. 
Never a great slash, Mike nevertheless kept his 
cum comfortably above 2.0 but started off on 
the wrong foot when it came to becoming ac- 
quainted with his first squad leader. After a 
set with the bushman, however, Mike settled 
down to become one of the most amiable guys 
in zoo two. An intramural track jock, he also 
worked with the Newman Club, and spent 
many hours at pro lectures involved with his 
major, Oceanography. His plans include avoid- 
ing any mermaids with serious intentions and 
perhaps a career with the greyhounds. What- 
ever, we wish Mike smooth seas and a C. 0. 
who'll appreciate his dedication, as he surely 
rates both. 


Kevin came from the fields of Southwestern 
Dwa, a town by the name of Clearfield, so 
mall that their first restaurant is now under 
onstruction. He brought the joy of living into 
he lives of many young lovelies from Calif or- 
ia to Germany, and when not honored by the 
resence of his current townie, he could usual- 
j be found bending an elbow with his friends. 
Iven though he was not one to let his studies 
band in the way of his education he managed 
9 hold his QPR very comfortably above "sea 
;vel" while majoring in Math. The conclusion 
f a hard day of classes would find Kevin 
eacefully huadled amidst the blankets, but it 

as not unusual to see his carrot-topped figure 
laying volleyball or company soccer, or 2nd 
ompany's version of "touch' football. Hope- 
jlly he will put as much energy and life into 
tie Navy as he put into his liberty hours. 


Skip Kohler is one of the "mighty mites?" 
During the fall he can be seen with a pinched 
look on his face muttering "Gotta make 
weight." Skip has achieved lasting fame be- 
cause of his work on the Ring and Crest Com- 
mittee. Otherwise Skip is a scuba diver, a mili- 
tary and sport paracnutist, a member of the 
Rugby Club and acts as Purchasing Officer for 
the Sportsman's Club. His biggest problems 
seem to consist of what guns, what grades, and 
which girl? With grades around a 2.75 and his 
near perfect grades in P. T. he got on the Sup's 
List as often as not. The girl problem? Which 
one to invite to Army ... He thinks maybe 
he'll go Surface Line. In fact, wherever he 

foes, whatever he is assigned to do, he'll be 


Being from the Midwest, Dave had to make 
choice between Agricultural School and 
avy. He opted to float. After experiencing 
Dating, "Wavy Davy" decided that he wanted 
I fly, a not uncommon occurence. Navy Air is 
iining a friendly, likable guy. Besides Deing a 
ajor contributor in company and batt sports,

r good things from Dave. 


When asked about the Naval Academy the 
answer from Kelly depends on what kind of 
day he's had, what was for dinner, and how 
many days until the next leave. Since Kelly 
came from Northport, N. Y., and due to his 
love of water, he joined the crew team. In be- 
tween practices, maintaining a decent QPR, 
and trying with little success to keep his ears 
free of bananas, Kelly finds time to sing in 
both the Chapel Choir and the shower with his, 
if not beautiful, at least loud, baritone voice. 
Kelly and the Navy don't quite agree on his ca- 
reer plans. He wants to go to P.G. School but it 
looks like the call of the sea first. He plans to 
probably go Navy Air. Whatever he decides, 
the Navy will be getting an outstanding

As a Navy Junior in Hawaii, Norfolk and fi- 
nally Arlington, Bill saw the light in the Navy 
"good life" and quickly decided that four years 
at the boat school would be the best bet for a 
career in nuclear subs. Undaunted by academic 
pressures. Bill was to spend most of his study 
hours in the rack "studying," until the eupho- 
ria of sleep turned mountains into molehills; 
but he nevertheless managed to crank out 
QPR's to keep his head above water. When his 
high jumping career with the track team 
fizzled due mostly to lack of talent, Bill 
switched to athletic interests in battalion cross 
country, judo, and became an active skier. A 
q^uick wit, sometimes subtle, sometimes caus- 
tic, combined with his more serious side, made 
a small matter of surmounting the challenges 
of life at the Academy and will most likely 
carry him far in his aspirations following 


Shoe, as he — is known, came to boat school 
from Bennington, Vermont, and was quickly 
molded into a "Plebe"(?) in the old tradition. 
He came with a burning desire to fly and 
someday to take part in the United States 
space program. To further these aims he chose 
Aerospace Engineering as a major. When not 
slaving over his texts he can be found in the in- 
tramural combat zones of basketball, softball, 
tennis or any place else where entertainment, 
preferably feminine, can be found. Jim will 
find his way into the air by the quickest route 
— hopefully without joining the surface line 
club upon graduation. 


Ray came from a little town in Illinois, in 
the suburbs of the big city. He knew very little 
of the Academy and almost hung it up — right 
away. Following the old Plebe nemesis he lost 
his girl by Christmas, and still hasn't picked up 
another steady, so there aren't any marriage 
plans in the near future after graduation. 
Never known for his stellar athletic ability. 
Van, as he became known to many, always 
struggled with the PhysEd Department, bare- 
ly scraping by, but still enioying company 
sports. Ray might have maae Sup's List if 
P.E. hadn't won out. But, in the latter years, 
the pad monster won out more than studying.

To be nobody-but-yourself in a world which 
is doing its best, night and day, to make you 
everybody else — means you're to fight the 
lardest battle which any human being can 
ight and never stop fighting. 


Robert Shields, "Nit," has put most of his ef- 
forts into academics. His outstanding grades 
can be contributed to hard work, determina- 
tion, and a pair of knee pads. His adventures 
with wine and women and TV sets have al- 
ways been good for laughs. Bob has been look- 
ing for the light at the end of the tunnel al- 
most every weekend with limited results. He 
has high hopes for a future in Oceanography 
or possibly politics. His enthusiasm to do well 
will undoubtedly bring him success. His love 
for the sea is unquestioned. Sailing fits right in 
with his interest in scuba diving. Bob's natural 
leadership abilities along with his high ideals, 
goals and adventuresome spirit should carry 
nim a long way. He is truly someone that will 
take command in any situation that confronts 
him. USNA can be very proud of Bob. 


Pete has had quite a successful run here at 
;he Academy. Not being a high school athlete, 
le went out for fencing his Plebe year, and 
nded up an All-American. Academically, he is 
)ne of the top of our class. In Pete womanhood 
est one of its more active admirers. Pete 
found what he was looking for, and is getting 
Tiarried in June. A friendly, humorous, intelli- 
gent guy, he is a great friend to many. We all 
vish nim the best of luck in his bound-to-be- 
fcuccessful future as an officer of Marines. 
















Rick or "Strings" hailed from the homeland 
of our school, Maryland. Always wanting to at- 
tend the Academy made it easy for him to 
overlook any foreseeable problems or hard- 
ships. Due to his swimming ability Plebe sum- 
mer and Plebe year were kept to a minimum. 
Since learning a sport helpea at the Academy 
to build men, he took his All-American status 
to the academic field to conipensate for his 
lack of academic prowess. 'This proved to 
"help" him through many tough courses and 
many not-so- tough ones. Swimming and study- 
ing all year gave Rick one goal at the Academy 
— to graduate. Settling down to married life 
in 2/c year made him think twice about his ca- 
reer in the Seals.

Steve came from Pomona, California, where

the Naval Academy where he proved himself 
capable of great things. Steve set his goals 
high, aspiring to do well. As he ranks in the 
upper five percent of the class, and comes 
crawling back every evening from a grueling 
crew practice on the Severn, Willy fights to be 
the number one. Coming to Annapolis knowing 
what his goals were, Steve fought hard and 
will keep fighting even as it becomes his turn 
to have that little talk with Admiral Rickover 
that so many future submariners dread. Steve 
will have no trouble, however, he will be sing- 
ing, "Victory at Sea," in that off-key bass 
voice for many years to come.

"Bails" came to the Academy from Oak 
Park, Illinois. After surviving the rigors of 
Plebe year, Bill set out to make his mark upon 
third company, USNA, and Annapolis women, 
not necessarily in that order. Fall and spring 
would find him out on the golf course, leading 
the golf team to victory over Army. The 
"heavies" provided recreation for Bill during 
winter set and each game he was somehow 
able to provide a catch even more spectacular 
than the one before. Whatever field he selects 
after graduation. Bill has the qualities and 
characteristics to become one of the finest offi- 
cers in the fleet. 


Bob, better known as Birdman, came to 
USNA all ready and raring to conquer Acade- 
my life. He found Plebe year quite challeng- 
ing, especially the academics. Somehow he al- 
ways managed to become the center of attrac- 
tion and continued to be during the rest of his 
stay at the Academy. Bob has a very outgoing 
personality and he can always be counted on 
for a good laugh. The Plebes however had a 
slightly different impression of Birdman, they 
looked upon him as the terror of the company. 
Bob was also a terror on the football field and 
led the third company heavyweight football 
team on to many victories. Bob was also noto- 
rious for his pad wrestling and even though he 
didn't always win he always put forth a good 
try. Bob walked a thin rope during his stay at 
the Academy, but his hard work and gungy at- 
titude toward the Academy and the Naval ser- 
vice pulled him through. 


Howie came to the Naval Academy from 
Summerhill, Pennsylvania via Admiral Farra- 
gut Academy. Known to his classmates as 
"Crones," or "Shoes," Howie made many 
friends easily here at the Academy. Howie was 
active in athletics, lettering in basketball and 
swimming sub-squad. Majoring in Analytical 
Management, he tended to shy away from En- 
gineering. It took a corresfwndence course to 
help him through wires, but fluctuating be- 
tween Academic Board and Superintendent's 
List. Some things we remember him for are his 
tremendous food packages, his knack for insti- 
gating things, such as the oil party, and the 
fine work he did Second Class year as Ward- 
room Liaison Officer. A charter member of the 
G.A.S.C, a striper, and an all around great 
guy. Howie's most famous saying was "I really 
have to study tonight, no fooling around." We 
think second class summer convinced him that 
Navy line was mighty fine, but wherever he 
chooses to go he is sure to he a fine officer and 
a great success.

Mike, coming to the Academy directly from 
ligh school, hails from Johnsonburg, Pennsyl- 
vania. Being on the crew team as a coxswam, 
'or the length of his college days, he was con- 
itantly on the weight watchers squad. This 
)roblem however, was alleviated by the de- 
ailed construction of model airplanes, a good 
)ook, many hours of sleep, and sometimes a tit- 
le study work. Always willing to help and 
eady for a conversation, he was known for his 
iasy going nature by many of his classmates, 
klajoring in Mechanical Engineering and not 
ompletely decided on a career pattern, Mike 
ontmues to walk on with a smile and a help- 
ng hand. 


Nick came to scenic Annapolis from high 
school in Orange Park, Florida. A Navy junior, 
his interests include the high bar for the varsi- 
ty gym team, the Chapel Choir, proficiency 
with several musical instruments and losing 
milkshakes. Nick is "information central" for 
the company, at least as far as the engineers 
are concerned. Who else has Christmas parties 
in September? He is also the man to see for a 
blind date (cheaper by the half dozen). Indus- 
trious, inventive and in keeping with his Aero 
major, and stars, Nick is sure to be an excel- 
lent pilot and Naval officer and also a welcome 
addition to any wardroom. 


Neal came to us as a Navy junior from Alex- 
andria, but quickly set about to establish his 
own naval traditions. His resemblance to a cer- 
tain Mayberry deputy earned him the un- 
shakable nickname of "Barney." Although 
never one with a discouraging word, Neal 
doesn't always take things lying down either. 
He became a charter member of GSAC and 
could usually be found engaged in a stimulat- 
ing discussion of the inner workings and hid- 
den mechanisms of the Executive Department. 
A successful June Week Youngster Year was 
due primarily to Neal's acquisition of a lovely 
cottage. A Physics major, Neal doesn't display 
any of the resonant qualities of his colleagues. 
A guitar is his first love and his hair is his sec- 
ond, although he hasn't had much luck with 
the latter. Here at Navy, Neal has given us the 
opportunity to know a strong leader and a fine 
midshipman and he should be a welcome addi- 
tion to any wardroom. 



"Ride 'em Delbo" is the call heard on the 
ridiron as #66, 1st Batt star Bob Delbridge, 
flakes another of his many outstanding plays 
n a Batt football game. "Delbo" hails from 
Jorman, Oklahoma, where he compared his 
impled chin to that of Granville Liggins of 
he University of Oklahoma. After a year at 
>U, Delbo rode his steer into Annapolis and 
emporarily hung up his cowboy boots to "arm 
vrastle" with Plebe year. Delbo won that bout 
ecisively, coming through it all as a member 
a the Dean's List and a high striper in the Bri- 
rade. As an upperclass he had a number of 
jastimes: bowling in front of the Main (0), giv- 
ing periodic greetings to the MOOW, adjusting 
le screws on the urinals, placing a "trash" can 
n top of the flag pole in T-€ourt, etc. Besides 
eing an established gridiron artist, Delbo was 
Iso a Brigade boxer. As he does in everything 
ise, he sought and attained the highest degree 
f excellence. The U.S. Marine Corps is ex- 
•emely fortunate in receiving an officer of 
iob Delbridge's stature. 


Like most of us, Don came to the Academy 
not knowing what to expect. Coming from 
Cumberland, Maryland, he should have known 
but he adjusted to the life quickly. He soon be- 
came known for his unique humor (Hey . . . 
horses eat hay!) and his distinctive laugh 
(somewhat akin to Woody Woodpecker's). A 
hard worker, Don achieved his stars and has 
maintained them since. With all the time spent 
studying, D. K. still found the time to win his 
coveted "Black N" before Christmas of third 
class year. Upon graduation, Don will most 
certainly become an outstanding addition to 
the Navy and the real world.

George came to the Naval Academy from 
Wilder, Vermont, and could always be counted 
on for his cheerful attitude. George made 
many friends and could always be counted on 
to help liven up a party. George, alias, Smoky, 
Woodstock or Foles, had many specialties, the 
mile run being the major one. George outlast- 
ed three roommates here at Navy, possibly be- 
cause no one could ever call George greasy. A 
charter member of G.A.S.C., Foles was known 
as the "punching bag" at times. Due to his lik- 
ing of flowered shirts George became known 
as the guy you could dress up but also the one 
you couldn t take anywhere. George had the 
top bunk reserved at all corn parties and his 
favorite saying was, "You only go around once 
in life, so grab all the gusto you can get." With 
his great personality and desire for a good 
time George will undoubtedly succeed at what- 
ever he does. 


Jim, known better to most of his friends as 
"Bart" came to bustling Annapolis from a 
peaceful law-abiding town in New Jersey 
where he was an all-state wrestler. He contin- 
ued to develop his wrestling prowess with the 
Plebeteam and since then has spread his atten- 
tion to other areas of rigorous -Academy life. 
Jim earned the coveted "Black N" when Hertz 
put him and five others in the driver's seat. 
Since then Jim has walked the straight and 
narrow path toward graduation while mas- 
tering the art of getting good grades and still 
keeping his body well rested. Jim's interests 
include sports, girls, Firebirds and food among 
other thing^. Jim vvill be a success in whatever 
field he chooses and he'd like that field to be 
with the Marines. 


Claiming Phoenix, Arizona as his home, 
Terry ventured to the Naval Academy to com- 
pete in sports and plug and chug through 
Aerospace Engineering. Remembered as tne 
life of Notre Dame parties Terry is also an en- 
thusiast of skiing, scuba diving, and most other 
outdoor sports. When "Tisk' does find some 
free time he will probably fly in his homemade 
helicopter to his acreage in the mountains of 
the Arizona drylands, (providing plans materi- 
alize) Not quite sure of his service selection, 
Terry will be good material for driving boats. 
Regardless of the branch of service that lucks 
out, "Terry (driven by his stubbornness, hard 
work and precise planning) should make flag 
rank before weeds develop on his ranch.

Mike came to Annapolis from San Francisco, 
with football on his mind. A strong competitor 
and easy-going person, "Hap" made many 
friends quickly. His favorite pastimes, aside 
from football, were girls and parties. He never 
seemed to be able to find a barber shop. Second 
class year he acc^uired a little "set and drift," 
never remembering where he left things like 
books and clothes. Always managing to stay 
above 2.0, Hap was more at home with Bali- 
Hai or Bud than a slide rule. His most famous 
saying was "you have to be smarter than the 
door before you can walk through it." Mike 
will be remembered as a member of the 
G.A.S.C. Unsure of service selection, we expect 
him to go Navy Line. Whatever his selection 
he is sure to be a success at it.

"Bug" never let the fact that he didn't grad- 
uate from high school interfere with his col- 
lege education. Never one to waste time study- 
ing, Harv kept busy with things like machines 
that could put trash cans on top of flag poles 
and rigging non-reg antennas on top oi the 
first wing. Harv was always known as the one 
to go to for help if your stereo wouldn't work 
or you needed help on homework or marital 
counseling. He had the somewhat dubious dis- 
tinction of being the only man in the world en- 
gaged for five years. In June when Harv gets 
out of this institution and into the other one 
the Navy will be getting an outstanding 


Steve surfaced at USNA from East Haven, 
Conn, where he was a varsity swimmer. Best 
known as S. B. J., he continued to swim for the 
batt and major in Mechanical Engineering. Al- 
though Steve set his sights on academic stars, 
he lost his way in Celestial Nav. During one of 
his many marathon weekends studying wires 
and thermo Steve dedicated his life's work 
toward academic success. To compensate, 
Steve resolved to spend a great portion of 
every season involved in "individual work- 
outs." To those who knew Steve well his per- 
sonality was a sheated sense of humor which 
when revealed could be devastatingly sarcas- 
tic. Never a strong church goer, Steve was on 
the varsity sleepy hollow squad and led the si- 
lent service. Without a doubt the Navy will re- 
ceive a hard worker and a true friend. 


Paul came to Annapolis directly from high 
school at the tender age of seventeen. Since ne 
is an Army brat, the list of his hometowns is a 
long one with Seattle, Washington, being the 
current one. Plebe year was met with ease by 
Paul in academics where he stood number one 
in the class, and in athletics on the Plebe varsi- 
ty swimming team. In his subsequent years at 
the Academy, Paul spent his time in search of 
a cure for cancer, earning his "Black N," and 
rolling up a lot of rack time interspersed with 
occasional study periods. The surface Navy 
will never be the same with Paul among its 


After four years of arduous study in high 
chool, and another in prep school, Greg came 
to Annapolis. Arriving from Columbus, Ohio, 
in June 1968, Greg learned that he could incur 
the wrath of the upperclass just as easily as he 
:ould with his teacners in high school. An inte- 
n-al part of Mac's milers, and the Leaning 
Rest for Lunch Bunch our red-headed hero 
vvas a standout Plebe year. He was always 
nore than willing to help out a classmate, and 
A'ound up with the company brick more than 
)nce. In sports he was the mainstay of the 
)umbling volleyball team, a daring runner and 
)locker for the company lightweights, and an 
mtstanding substitute for batt tennis. Never 
nuch for Engineering, Greg maintaining a re- 
pectable average by majoring in Analytical 
Management. An advocate of that old saying 
Navy Line is mighty fine," Greg plans for a 
)D but says that if he can't get that he'll set- 
le for a fleet tug. 


Good natured Fred came to Navy from the 
"Queen City," Cincinnati, Ohio. After a suc- 
cessful stint with the Navy football team 
Plebe year he turned his formidable athletic 
skill toward the Track team. His great 
strength and determination soon made him 
Navy s best hammer man. On weekends, he 
was always out with Sylvia or some other 
young lovely. In his spare time Fred could be 
found poring over his books. Although far 
from finding academics difficult, he did on oc- 
casion come across a "tough course." He can 
look forward to a bright future in the Navy.

Mike came to the Academy from Wheaton, 
Md. via NAPS, and had already acquired a 
true love for the Navy, having spent most of 
his adult life there. Known more widely as 
"Ski," he soon became one of the more out- 
standing and outspoken members of the com- 
pany. Grades came easy for Mike, so he gener- 
ally took it easy, managing to stay on the 
Dean's List and at the same time being a char- 
ter member of the G.A.S.C. He won his "Black 
N" by letting Hertz put him in the driver's 
seat, but didn t let that get him down. His easy 
going attitude and friendliness made him a 
hard core member of the 3rd Company tube, 
corn, and bull sessions, and he could always be 
found either wandering the halls in search of 
conversation or helping a desperate classmate 
in wires on his own study time. He was always 
active in athletics, having rowed varsity crew, 
done a great deal of sailing, and spent a lot of 
time at swimming E.I. Ski will always be re- 
membered as the keeper of the 4 ft. yellow ba- 
nana he inherited from Billy, a member of the 
Class of '69, and by these words: "Why do 
these things always happen to us." Always a 
strong promoter of Navy line, Mike will be an 
instant success, both in the fleet and for the 
rest of his life. 


With a strong guitar and a song, Dave ar- 
rived from San Antonio ready to do his best, a 
trademark which earned him the respect of all 
who knew him. Being a Navy Junior, the 
rigors of Academy life offer little surprise. 
After terrorizing the steaming heights of the 
fencing loft Plebe year, Dave traded in his 
saber for a position \n the choir loft, where he 
continued to terrorize those of us he left be- 
hind in Sleepy Hollow. Except for an occasion- 
al battle with the Spanish profs, academics 
were of small concern as the Sup's List barrier 
was, well, if not destroyed, at least heavily 
dented. Now if he could only learn how to play 
the guitar, nothing will remain in his way. 
Dave s plans aim for a career on Surface Line, 
yet whatever his choice, his sincere devotion 
and loyalty to his beliefs will be a victory for 
the Naval Service. 


The Mighty Tolk, a native of Tenafly, New 
Jersey, probably spent less time at the Acade- 
my than any other member of his class, a re- 
sult of his religious activities. A three year let- 
ter winner in wrestling his fondness of grap- 
Eling was by no means confined to the mat. 
AT-man never sweat academics but never 
did quite reach that 3.4 march. His luck was 
unsurpassed and many waited for the day 
when he would finally get ZAPPED . . . per- 
haps a short circuit in his electric blanket. Best 
looking in his high school senior class, so he 
said, Andy led a torrid social life and was al- 
ways willing to set up a friend with some 
young lovely. Barbara has his favorite name, 
although the girl wasn't always the same — 
Although undecided about service selection 
Andy will undoubtedly succeed in making his 
mark on the fleet.

1 The streets of Springfield, Mass. sent us one 
' C. H. Rucks. Determined from the beginning 
1 to succeed here as a good guy — he failed, of 
1 course, at least so far as the Mothers of An- 
1 napolis are concerned. Swim-wise, he was a 
j spmshing success (Coach Higgins asked him to 
stick around 3/c Summer for grins). And if 
> Deake's name isn't included with the swim- 
-, ming Hall of Fame, it will surely go down in 
: history as L. D. Charley (low down) as fond, 
j and perpetual remembrance of the time he had 
four dates show up for an Army party. But se- 
riously, Deake's name will be remembered as 
the 145 # Brigade Boxing Champion — and as 
;i 150 # football letterman. Deake will never 
!)e remembered as a scholastic wizard, but 
rather as the type of man who said what was 
m his mind, who was never too tired to help 
uut a fellow classmate — even if only to lend 
i i — a patient ear, and who will surely succeed in 
whatever service he must enter as a detour on 
ihe way to 2nd LT, USMC — Go ahead, Deake! 


Hailing from nearby Bel Air, Md., Chris 
came to Canoe U. well aware of its less invit- 
ing aspects. His inate determination and self- 
confidence stood him well in the face of Plebe 
year's trials. In his years as an upper class 
man, P-Bear consistently spent long nights 
grappling with the snares of the Engineering 
Department. Chris was a tough competitor in 
any athletics he played, but possessed an acute 
aversion to YP s, formal dances, tea fights, 
and Navy social life in general (Chris pre- 
ferred dnve-ins and beer). Provided he was not 
sending Diane's letter to Joyce and vice versa, 
his blonde hair and humble manner kept the 
girls after him. His loyalty, competitiveness, 
and personable manner will stand out whether 
he is in Navy Line or the Corps. 


Up from the swamps of the deep South or 
.\tlanta, Georgia, emerged a true redneck 
•ommonly known as "Country" or better yet 
'The Bar." Now the "The Bar" came to the 
Academy with a single purpose, to stick his 
saw in everything. On the Plebe football team 
ne excelled as a kicking specialist. While carry- 
ng a heavy load in his major, which was grad- 
jation, "The Bar" murdered the Bull Depart- 
nent. In athletics he clawed his way through 
,hree years of company football while it was 
'olleyball that brought out his true fuller in- 
itinct. In all seriousness, there aren't many 
ike this bear. If effort and determination can 
nove mountains, he will. Whatever it takes 
le's got. The Navy will never be more proud 
han to claim one Robert Spencer Kerr Smith. 


George arrived at Annapolis from the Uni- 
versity of Missouri, NROTC. Plebe year 
George began sailing and has been with the 
Sailing Squadron ever since. The high points of 
his sailing career at Navy were the Newport- 
Bermuda Race, the Miami-Nassau Race and a 
Naval Academy yawl command. George has 
his pilot's license and wants aviation after 
graduation. Being one of the many four-eyed 
midshipmen at Navy, however, he may be a 
brown shoe in the fleet. George's sailing has 
received some interference from the academic 
department but an extracurricular activity of 
his in town is also fighting for equal time. 
After graduation George is casting his fate to 
the winds but until then he's concentrating on 
his commission and Naval Architecture major. 


From the scrappy, rough-housing little town 
)f Sapulpa, Oklahoma, came this scrappy, 
ough-housing Oakie. Tree is one guy who is 
lever afraid to say what he thinks to those 
hat need to hear it, and for this he is one of 
he most respected guys around. Being Found- 
;r and President of the Boot "B" League, Tree 
itands behind those famous words sung by 
hat well-known fellow Oakie, Merle Haggard: 
iemics never came too easy for Tree even 
hough he did manage to get three semesters 
if Calculus under his belt. It was rumored that 
ven when he wasn't studying or going for 
S.I., he could be found hunting down barkling 
piders, trying to paint them green. Certainly, 

ree is one hell of a great guy, and just as he is 
^aving his good mark at the Academy, he'll 
nake a good impression in the fleet. 


From a very successful career at an Oklaho- 
ma high school, Charlie stumbled into the rou- 
tine (and) excitement of Academy life. He 
quickly adapted to this new life as he has 
never been known to sweat anything too 
much. Charlie's favorite hobbies include Beatle 
music, evading the barber shop, reading, 
squash, drinking, and girls. The motto "give 
me liberty or give me death," was his. He 
never proved very successful in his constant 
battle with the pad monster, thus disappoint- 
ing his Indian heritage. Blind dates and swim- 
ming are his other two downfalls he has devel- 
oped unpleasant experiences from Charlie's 
deep interest in current events set him apart 
from most people. With his sights set on Navy 
Line, he is majoring in Management. His easy- 
going sense of humor and attitude have made 
him a good classmate and friend to all. 
Charlie's future success is evidenced in the fact 
that he will always be a gentleman, a good 
drinker, and an all-around nice guy.

El "Bandito" hails from Ancon, Peru. Hav- 
ing been for a year and a half at the Peruvian 
Naval Academy, "Tuna" came to Annapolis 
for his second round of Plebe life. Here ht 
faced some initial trouble with the language 
while trying to adjust to the new environment 
at the Academy. After a year of continuous ef- 
fort, Jose acquired a fairly good English pro- 
nunciation. Crazy enough to take Electrical 
Engineering as major, his "wires" gave him 
more than one "shock" upon contact with the 
grade card. In spite of this, he always managed 
to come out on top at the end. Starring in var- 
sity ping-pong and demonstrating strange 
South American "abilities" on the soccer field, 
Jose established himself as a stellar athlete. He 
represented the Naval Academy on Intercolle- 
giate Table Tennis Tournaments and also 
played in the company team. His other activi- 
ties included the Spanish Club, Newman Club 
and . . . official Spanish expert for the compa- 
ny. Upon graduation Jose will receive his nine 
year commission in the Peruvian Navy. His 
Surface Line selection will make possible his 
hopes of visiting us again in the near future.] 


Affectionately known as "Bush," "Grease 
Bag" or "Wop" by those who knew him (and 
those who wished they didn't), Steve Bi-shell- 
ya (fa-net-ic spelling) came from the foothills 
of Massachusetts (somewhere close to Bunker 
Hill I've heard) to become a Naval officer. 
There are some of us who believe he still may 
make it, no matter how slim his chances seem. 
He was famous for his provolone and peppero- 
ni and "Chicago-style" band. (The band may 
make its first appearance yet so don't give up 
hope). After graduation, these few lines should 
guide him to bigger and better things in his 
long career.

Steve came to the Academy from the "Greai 
Northwest," and Seattle. It didn't take bins 
long to adjust to the climate and routine, as ht 
was made D&B sub-commander during Pleb< 
summer. "Gino" found that the courses towaro 
his Math major wouldn't be much of a problem 
either, and has been on the Dean's list consist! 
ently. After class, "Gino" could usually b« 
found on the intramural field, and, good a« 
most any sport he tried, the soccer, fieldballl 
and slow-pitch softball teams were alway» 
happy to see him. On weekends, Steve busied 
himself announcing football games as a mem' 
ber of the Public Relations Club, taking care o' 
the informal services in the Chapel, or at hisi 
favorite occupation — supporting his rack 
Steve has chosen the Nuclear Navy as his ser 
vice selection, and will probably be found irj 
the submarine fleet after graduation.

Albert F. Beede (Rick?), an NROTC prospect 
at use, decided to fulfill his aviation desires 
at USNA instead. "Beeds," arriving here 
straight from Coronado High School, Califor- 
nia, was quite an input to Navy. His excellent 
swimming ability proved to be a tremendous 
asset to the Plebe swimming team, but since 
then he decided to pursue another field at 
Navy. Being a consistent 4.0 man (at PT only), 
Rick had no trouble in excelling in sports such 
as handball, weightlifting, card playing, and 
"individual workouts" on a Youngster after- 
noon. Rick was well liked and known by every- 
one, mainly because he was almost everyone's 
roommate at one time or another. Upon retire- 
ment from the Academy, Navy Air can look 
forward to another fine addition to their A-4 
squadrons. Good luck. Rick! 



Rick entered the Academy in fine "midwest- 
ern" form. Hailing from Shawnee Mission, 
Kansas, he was always at the top of the list for 
effort yet seemed to always receive the "pro- 
verbial banana" for some obscure whim of an 
unbelievable firstie! However, as soon as he re- 
ceived his "plebe with carry-on stripe" he 
began to excel in academics and moved to the 
top as a leader and organizer in the company. 
Well known for his Army projects Rick has a 
great knack for working with people and or- 
ganizing his time which will undoubtedly put 
nim far ahead in the Nuclear Power program 
for which he is destined. 


Hailing from Danvers, Massachusetts, Bob 
came to the Academy by way of Bullis Prep 
School. Affectionately known as "Rabbit," Bob 
was said to have a girl in every port, and in 
many inland cities, too. A Saturday night reg- 
ular in D. C, "Hans" Chabot frequently exhib- 
ited his golden skates. A very popular guy, 
both in and outside of the Academy, Bob re- 
ceived much mail, including many communi- 
ques from his bank and state police. Bob was a 
great asset to 4th Company sports, particularly 
soccer, fieldball, and skiing, and this competi- 
tive spirit carried over mto his late night 
quests for a full house or a straight flush. 
Never one to "sweat" academics. Bob never 
Quite made the Sup's List, but then again 
aidn't have to see him personally either. It 
would be difficult to find a more friendly guy 
and his sense of humor will surely enliven 
many a future duty station as Bob "hits the 
pike ' to Pensacola. 


Don Carlson, better known as "Pooh" by his 
many friends, hails from the notorious city of 
Youngstown, Ohio. After spending an enjoy- 
able year at NAPS where ne played football 
and set records for miles logged in by hitchhik- 
ing, he came to USNA with the same enthusi- 
asm shared by all the other NAPsters. At the 
Naval Academy Don soon proved his excel- 
lence in the intramural sports program, espe- 
cially battalion football, whenever he could be 
lured away from the pad (his favorite pastime) 
or his many financial endeavors. He was usual- 
ly a very slow starter every semester in the ac- 
ademic field, but to the surprise of most every- 
one he invariably finished with good marks. 
Away from the Academy, girls, fine food, 
heavy drink and motorcycles fill much of his 
free time. Don is looking forward to gradua- 
tion and is hoping to make Navy Air his career.

Jody came to Navy from Odessa, Texas. 
After spending a year at New Mexico Military 
Institute (no wonder he was squared away), 
Joe traded the Army green for Navy blue. 
From the first day of Plebe summer Joe be- 
came known for his super shiny shoes. When 
aptitude was the subject, he always stood high. 
His efforts and dedication occasionally re- 
sulted in the formation of rather large beads 
of sweat. The academics were never easy for 
Joe. In the wee hours of the morning he could 
be found in transit from the wardroom to the 
pad. Although not having trouble with the 
courses in his History major, the old "Core" 
courses sometimes proved to be a severe chal- 
lenge. Being one of the "jocks" of the compa- 
ny, Joe played Plebe football and lacrosse. 
Weakening to the desire of more free time and 
the call of the rack. Youngster year found him 
playing company and battalion sports. Upon 
graduation, Navy line will be receiving an out- 
standing officer. His zeal, perseverance, and 
leadership qualities show promise of a brilliant 


Ray came to the banks of the Severn from 
Staten Island, New York and a Brooklyn Tech 
education complete with accent. A basketball 
player in high school, he has blessed the intra- 
mural b-ball team in the past, not to mention 
his contributions to company volleyball, and 
slo-pitch Softball. As a segundo Ray turned 
into a real "bike" as Sports Director for 
WRNV. If not at WRNV during his free peri- 
ods, he can usually be found in mortal combat 
with the pad monster and always losing. His 
"gift for gab" has not only aided him as a disc 
jockey on WRNV but also as an active member 
of PRC, announcing Navy football and basket- 
ball games. Town liberty finds him sprinting 
for the gates to meet Marie. His amiable per- 
sonality and easygoing sense of humor will be 
sure to see him through his career in the Sur- 
face Navy. 


Bob came to Navy Tech from that immortal 
location of Huntington, Long Island. He Im- 
mediately endeared himself to the first class at 
his end of the hall and was often found doing 
many odd jobs at very unusual hours. It is 
often during the winter sports season that the 
"Jaker" is most at home. An N* winner 
Youngster year for the fencing team he could 
always be counted on for that big victory when 
it was needed. During the spring he made an 
important contribution to the sTo-pitch team 
that did win a Brigade championship. Con- 
scientious about everything he did Bod made 
the Sup's List consistently and excelled in all 
he tried. With his many talents and sense of 
humor Bob will do well in whatever branch of 
the service he finally selects.

After spending a year at Emory University 
l1 forsook the party life of his fraternity and 
n appointment to West Point in order to at- 
gnd the Academy, a decision which he has 
ever regretted. Always one to size up a situa- 
ion quickly and take proper action, he wasted 

time in realizing T-tables was the place to 
e Plebe year and managed to sweat out three 
ets there. Sleeping, running, and traveling 
re among his favorite pastimes as he excelled 

1 each. His good nature and affable personali- 
y, a letter in track Youngster year, and tales 
f his exploits in Europe all attest to that, 
leing deeply interested in current events and 
lessed with a gift of blarney, his pursuits in- 
luded a major in Foreign Affairs while also 
ontributing to the running of NAFAC. Be- 
ause of Al s dedication, friendly attitude, and 
jadership ability he will be a welcome addi- 
ion to any ship s wardroom. 


Coming from that well-known resort town 
of Webster Groves, Missouri, Rick soon discov- 
ered that the Mississippi was not the largest 
ocean in the world. He spent 25 hours a day 
during Plebe and Youngster years crewing on 
the Severn, but upon application of his superi- 
or athletic abilities to company sports, was 
found frequently working out in the pad. Rick 
was always a hit with the women, particularly 
when separated by great distances, but was 
never one to turn down a blind date. It will 
take more than a pretty face and a red hot 
body to capture this guy from the "Show-Me" 
state, though — as his strong intellect and aca- 
demic abilities afforded him the pleasure of 
Sup's and Dean's list privileges many times! 
Rick leaning toward Surface Line appears mo- 
tivated for a career of Naval service, and a 
highly successful one at that. A pleasure to 
work with and a friend to all, the Navy will 
profit greatly when Rick hits the fleet. 


"Smocker" hails frim the raisin capitol of 
ne world, Selma, California, and hasn t found 
le Maryland weather agreeable since leaving 
rod's country. Not one to condone cliques, 
;alph wasn't in any. Instead he served on the 
brigade Hop Committee. M. J. provided Ralph 
nth the necessary inspiration to be a moder- 
tely successful mid and weekends with her

ating in a third person sort of way and avoid- 
i becoming emotionally involved with the ar- 
itrary aspects of our lives. His motto "Don't 
Afeat the small stuff" will carry him through 
is career. 


Two roads diverged in a yellow wood 
And sorry I could not travel both 
And be one traveler, long I stood 
And looked down one as far as I could 
To where it bent in the undergrowth 
Then took the other, as just as fair. 
And having perhaps the better claim 
Because it was grassy and wanted wear; 
Though as for that the passing there 
Had worn them really about the same 
And both that morning equally lay 
In leaves no step had trodden black 
Oh, I kept the first for another day! 
Yet knowing how way leads on to way 
I doubted if I should ever come back. 
I shall be telling this with a sigh 
Somewhere ages and ages hence: 
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I 
I took the one less traveled by. 
And that has made all the difference. 



Templeton, Iowa is famous for two things; 
'e whiskey and Larry Johnson. Larry is fa- 
ous for two things — his "Cheery Aye- 
ye's" and the "Tape-eating Monster! While 
lending most of his time in the Chemistry 
bs or the wrestling loft, Larry still remained 
1 cordial terms with the Superintendent. His 
ork with the wrestling team earned him two 
irsity N's as head manager. During his off 
me, Larry coordinated many Saturday night 
irties and the ensuing seven-mile car races 
ick to "Momma B." Larry's rigorous schedule 
ill allowed him time to pursue his interest in 
usic — both as a singing barber and as a 
nor in the Catholic Choir. During Second 
iass summer Larry took" the plunge for 
ibmarines and that's where he'll probably be 
and after graduation.

"The cowboy" came to us out of the sunrise 
from Virginia Beach and soon became known 
throughout town. Always competitive he gave 
his utmost in all that he tried in athletics from 
caroming off the walk in a handball court to 
swinging a big stick for the Plebe golf team. A 
renowned world traveller, he is known in all 
the bars between Waimea Falls, Hawaii and 
Bergen, Norway. With a major in Manage- 
ment he can be found manj' times burning the 
midnight oil, toiling over his plans for the next 
weekend. Still undecided which road to take 
after graduation, he'll probably settle on ei- 
ther subs or Surface Line. Whichever one gets 
the pick they'll be getting a man of action who 
gets things done. 


After whooping it up for two fun filled 
years at Prep Schools, including NAPS, Dan fi- 
nally made his appearance at the Naval Acade- 
my. Picking Marme Engineering as a major, 
he settled down for four long years of study 
with nuclear power school and subs his goal. In 
between studies, Dan found time for a steady 
girl and company sports, including fieldball 
and soccer. On weekends, if his girl wasn't 
down, Dan could always be found taking in the 
most recent flick at the "Playhouse." With this 
background, Dan should prove to be a valuable 
asset to the Navy. 


For the past four years the duty answer to 
the question, "Where is Ken?" has been, 
"Check the phones." He has undoubtedly 
logged in more hours in the booths and con- 
tributed more benefits to the stockholders of 
AT&T than anyone at Navy. Although Ken's 
ability to sing a simple song allows much room 
for improvement, he seems to have neverthe- 
less entranced at least one admirer from his 
hopietown in Milford, Conn. He did manage to 
attain the ranks of the notorious and the glori- 
ous by winning or receiving several letters of 
various colors — most notably one with a star 
for the soccer play which produced the game 
winning goal in Navy's rout over Army in 
1970. Captain of the Plebe soccer team, and 
one of four youngsters to letter in 1969, Ken 
has become well known for his determined and 
spirited style of play. This determination 
snould ably carry him through the years ahead 
— provided he can find a phone booth some- 
where aboard his ship.

Flea, a handle not everyone can claim, can 
usually be found on the soccer field working on 
his left footed shot, or on the football field 
catching passes for the heavies. In the Spring, 
he spends his afternoons sailing and took time 
out to make one trip to Bermuda on Rage. Ma- 
joring in Aero, Phil also spends many hours 
with book in hand. His great personality 
makes very very popular within the company. 
Always attaining excellence in his professional 
training, Phil's a sure bet for Surface Line. 



Snatching Bill from the shores of Long 
Beach, California, the Naval Academy has yet 
to realize how lucky it really is! Bill distin- 
^ished himself early in his career as a natural 
sngineer — most notable are his studies of 
'stresses on the Blue Trampoline." Although 
fie could be counted on to make Dean's List 
whenever he felt like it. Moods never did let 
icademics tie him to studying all week long. 
On weekends, if he wasn't graveling his way 
:hrough the hills of New Jersey, he was heat- 
,ng the treaden path to Edgewater. And in the 
spring you could usually catch him out on the 
■ed beach with the other sun-worshippers. Bill 
ihould go far in the surface line community, 
ispecially if he ever gets stationed in Naples. 
ie always used to say: "There's nothing so 
ine, as a good Italian wine." 


"Max," "Moe," or "Donald," depending on 
what year or state of medical attention he was 
going through at the time, came to the Acade- 
my from Atkinson, Nebraska. Knowing little 
about life, here, he figured on spending two 
years as a Plebe. But Max seemed to adjust 
and fit in rapidly, excelling in everything he 
did. He could always be counted on for an af- 
ternoon soccer, football, or handball game, but 
rugby was his specialty (or was it the parties 
afterwards?). A confirmed bachelor for at 
least a few years, Max is leaning towards 
Navy Air and helicopters. But whatever he 
chooses, his conscientious attitude and objec- 
tive thinking will help him to go far. 


Nick, better known to all of us as the 
"Greek," hails from or raises hell from the long 
distant city of Annapolis. Plebe year posed no 
problems for Nick as he was always present 
for the daily runs around goat court. Academi- 
cally, Nick may not be the next Trident Schol- 
ar, but when trouble strikes vou can always 
depend on Nick to come up with an answer and 
a good one! With his keen business instinct, he 
will have no trouble in succeeding in life. It's 
not hard to understand why Nick finds his 
gclme in lacrosse with his lively personality. 
After hours Zorba cah usually be found lead- 
ing "The Gang" to some new "swinging" night 
spot. Personality wise, Nick combines the wis- 
dom of Socrates with the cunning of Onassis. 
Wrap all this up, and you have that "Golden 
Greek" from Annapolis, a true friend to all. 


^ Inspite of spending two years at Arizona 
State University, John entered the Academy 
IS the youngest man in the company. Howev- 
ir, he quickly showed that he was ahead of 
nost of his classmates. J. L. Validated 'hecto' 
lOurs of academics and most of Plebe year. 
)uring Youngster year, John tried to win his 
'Black N" on a trip to D. C, but received a 
small package deal for his efforts. When not 
n the pad, he could be found either in the 
iwimming pool or on the football field adding 
lis bulk to the company heavies. A Math 
najor, John found academics at USNA to be 
10 problem. He was always at the top of the 
)ean's and Sup's List. A true "hog man," John 
pent his summers roaming the globe in an 
ndless search for the perfect brew. Upon 
Taduation, John's plans are to enter either the 
Javy or the Marine Corps.

Hailing from Charleston, West Virginia, the 
"Ridge Runner" has had many trying skir- 
mishes with the Academic Department. How- 
ever, he liked the Naval Engineering courses 
and never missed a chance to combine business 
with pleasure by studying the tensile strength 
of his mattress springs while doing horizontal 
isometrics in preparation for his many bouts 
on the company football field. He has often 
said that his concern for personal appearance 
is second only to his pride in accountability. 
Hersh would like to fly attack helicopters 
eventually, but may realize this goal sooner 
than expected. 


Deep from the cornfields of Davenport, 
Iowa trudged young innocent Scott on a lowly 
day in June of "68." From that day forward he 
set his sights on a prosperous Navy career. 
Even though many a time he thought of be- 
coming a successful graduate of the University 
of Iowa, Scott continued on at the Academy. 
Since he never had any trouble with academ- 
ics, Scott's motto was "the more I sleep, the 
better I do." Because of all of this extra free" 
time he had more of an opportunity to delve 
into the professional aspects of life at Navy. 
Often you had to wear sunglasses to look at his 
shoes, and a piece of dust would never dare set 
on his shoulder. Scott's basketball ability was 
carried over from high school to help out many 
company basketball games. Scott decided to 
minor in Dental work and earned him a nick- 
name of "Spike." As he has not yet decided 
upon a career pattern, whatever his final 
choice, Scott is bound to contribute not only 
the resources of a responsible officer but the 
capabilities of a good leader. 


Among Steve's many accomplishments, he 
usually notes his greatest as helping the Lewis 
and Clark Expedition scout-out the Northwest 
Territory and found his personal homeland of 
Portland, Oregon. Known to his many friends 
as "Spoon," Steve has always been looked up 
to (6'6") as an outstanding leader. As an 
Aerospace major, Steve's academic prowess 
has seen anything but consistent since his en- 
trance to the Naval Academy, as he has radi- 
cally switched between Dean's List and Sup's 
List from semester to semester. On a clear 
Spring day, if one saw a tall, lean figure out 
hurtling a glimmering aluminum rod through 
the air, it would probably be Steve, a dedicated 
member of Navy's track team in the javelin 
department. An ever present piece of furni- 
ture in one special corner of his room, 
"Spoon's" javelin has resulted in many room 
inspections marked with "articles adrift" dis- 
crepancies. A hard worker and dedicated indi- 
vidual, the Naval Air program can soon look 
forward to having Steve in the driver's seat of 
one of their sleek Phantom jets.

H| Coming from the bustling metropolis of 
■IBally, Pennsylvania, "Stubbs" arrived at 
USNA after spending a tough (?) year at Co- 
lumbian Prep. Jerry, noted for his good atti- 
tude towards Navy life, was always finding 
'the Navy good deal." Being an enterprising 
foung man in many fields gained him the nick- 
lame "Stein." Not one to be intimidated by 
•egulations of any sort, Jerry came too close to 
laving a fullv equipped appliance store in his 
)wn room. "Mouse ' also led an active social 
ife, with D. C. as his favorite haunt. As if all 
)f this was not enough, Jerry participated in 
Brigade boxing and the Hop Committee. Look- 
ng forward to a long and bright future (not 
lecessarily in the Navy), this young man 
ihould have little trouble in succeeding. 

■ Hailing from deep within the South, "Lath" 
H )r "Gator" came to USNA from Jacksonville, 
PF Florida, with a stop at NAPS, where he was a 
ock in football and lacrosse. Once here he 
showed his abilities as a back in Plebe football; 
ind helped the company with his athletic tal- 
jnts in soccer, fieldbafl, and fast pitch. Al- 
though occasionally his thoughts would turn to 
Management, Lath could usually be found bat- 
.ling the pad monster (he has yet to win). Ga- 
-or's loves include his Jacksonville sweetheart, 
vettes, and many tall, cold Buds. Lath is one 
; )f the few mids who knows how to season his 
'un, extracurricular activities, and sleep time 
vith moments of serious studying. When his 
)ank account showed positive numbers, he 
vould always be dragging on weekends, which 
xplains his seeing so many Saturday night 
novies in the wardroom. Lath is one of the 
nost popular guys in the company and we all 
vish nim happiness and success in whichever 
ield of service he chooses. 




Like the Severn's world renown jellyfish, 
Jkip washed up the Chesapeake one afternoon 
rom Virginia Beach. Unlike those same jelly 
ish, he became somewhat of a permanent 
ixture in the 4th Company area. Sharing his 
ime between the wardroom and the pad, Skip 
till managed Sup's and Dean's Lists numerous 
imes. A natural athlete, "Wheeze" or "one- 
ung," was a valuable addition to company 
ports. Unfortunately, it was usually the other 
ompanv. Also a golfer, hardly a weekend saw 
lim refrain from hitting the North Severn 
inks, usually in record fashion. His perennially 
:ood attitude set a fine example for all to fol- 
3w. There were few Skip would refuse to help 
t any and all opportunities. No slouch with 
^he opposite sex, his "little black book" came in 
hree volumes. As Business Manager of this 
JAG, he spent many long and difficult hours 
uggling books and handling correspondence.

ion when the tide finally washes back down to

Steve, a victim of circumstances and "help- 
ful" friends, found himself at the Naval Acad- 
emy early one June morning with head gear 
and two young lovelies in hand. Besides 
Steve's amazing athletic ability he has estab- 
lished himself as company contortionist, con- 
versationalist, rack champion and rally coordi- 
nator. If you needed to find Steve, in the last 
place you d look would be his room. Sleepin' in 
Mac's pad or riding the third wing "vator" tied 
to a mail sac were more likely places to look. 
Neither was Steve known to be calm at those 
frequent rallies. There was a time when Steve 
had to hold his finger together after opening a 
bottle with a bathtub. And his bout with a 
filth of tequilla in Pensacola will long live in 
the annals of social drinking. For a guy whc 
just happened upon the Naval Academy, Steve 
has certainly shown himself to be one of tht 
finest members aboard. His friendly personali- 
ty, sense of humor and concern for others will 
definitely make him successful in all hi.^ 



Scott jogged through the doors of Bancroft 
Hall from Stamford, Connecticut. He soon ac- 
quired the reputation of intellectual artless- 
ness and as a loquacious, outgoing person. He 
performed well on wrestling and football train- 
ing tables. Scott lived by the axiom, leadership 
is oest displayed through example, which was 
proven by his receipt of the coveted "Black N," 
twice. Although Scott was not too athletically 
inclined, his academic prowess was an inspira- 
tion to his classmates. As an upperclass, Scott 
played enough varsity, JV football to become 
one of Coach Forzano's favorites. Bordy plans 
to make his presence felt in the Naval Service 
after graduation, and will prove to be an asset 
to his country. 


C. R., as he is known to classmates, is frori 
the heart of the Corn Belt, a small semi-suburr 
of Chicago known as Frankfort. Of the origi! 
nal 39, 72ers in 5th Co. he and the other 1; 
classmates make up the sum of 72's contingen'l 
left in 5. Plebe year was a time of studij 
worries and even a failure in Plebe Math tha 
could have put a serious dent in his Naval 03; 
reer. He has succumbed to the enticement o 
his high school sweetheart and plans a Jun j 
1972 wedding, if not sooner. Karen, his f lancet 
left family and friends to be near him the lasi 
two years to make USNA life a little mor 
bearable. Known as a firecracker with almos 
no fuse, his antics in batt. lacrosse and ball 
football have certainly been entertaining t 
sp>ectators. To fly was his dream but drivini 
boats have to come first, at least for a whiU 
But right now his thoughts are of Karen 
and Karen . . . and Karen . . .!!

Bill came to us from Newport, R. I. but soon 
switched to San Francisco. A Navy Junior all 
his life, he was ready to take Navy by storm 
until a combination of Bancroft Hall, athletics 
and academics settled him down. Bill's encoun- 
ters with the technical academics reminded 
one of "Mission: Impossible," his greater inter- 
ests lying in his Political Science major. His 
weekends were happily spent, turning down 
nights on the town with "the guys" in favor of 
his favorite student nurse as another of 5's 
candidates for the Immediate Marriage pro- 
gram. Bill could never get enough intellectual 
discussions at the trade school, but his aims are 
set at law school where he may yet be satis- 
fied. A firm belief that "The only way is any- 
thing but underway" will probably steer Bill 
toward the Navy Air program where his gift 
of gab should stand him in good stead. 


Tom came to the Academy from the sunny 
beaches of Hawaii. An Army brat, he decided 
on the Navy because of an affinity for the 
ocean. Upon arrival at USNA he traded a surf- 
board for a berth on one of the Academy's rac- 
ing yachts. He managed to enjoy the Bermuda 
Race, and except for one memorable day in the 
Gulf Stream, has been sold on Navy sailing. 
The "pad monster was no threat to Tom. He 
just did his sleeping at a desk while getting a 
irecord for denials that he was asleep. "Rud- 
der," as he is known to his classmates, is no 
slouch when it came to having a good time. 
Second Class Summer in Pensacola found our 
hero pursuing drinking records and beautiful 
women. Memories of the "Ready Room" and 
Chucky's last show will endure. Upon gradua- 
tion Tom looks forward to Nuclear Power 
School and a career in the nuclear Navy. 


P. H., as Cliff is known to his close friends, 
came to Navy with his roots firmly set in the 
soil of Lewiston, Idaho. The boast of Lewiston 
High, and proud of being the only mid in a 
2250-mile radius of his front door. Cliff made a 
good name for Academy all the way from 
Boise to Pacatello County. Weekday after- 
noons found "potato" in the pool, in the cross- 
word of the Evening Star, or in the rack. A be- 
liever in "practice makes perfect," he was tops 
in them all. When the 0. D. found him in the 
pad one morning. Jack became fifth company's 
only resident "fried potato," but even restric- 
tion and E. D. couldn t dampen his indomitable 
spirit. As a student of Physics, however. Cliff 
was no sleeper, and went on to leave his mark 
in Michelson Hall. After graduation. Cliff has 
his eye on either Sue, Sherry, Chris, or Sally 
and either Navy Line or Nuclear Power. In 
any case, it's a sure bet he'll quickly determine 
what it all boils down to and be a continued 
asset to the Naval Service. 


Glen came to Navy with a strict moral up- 
bringing from Evansville, Indiana, but once 
here, he soon changed his ways. Although he 
was probably the most prolific writer to girls 
in the company, he never had one he could 
really call his own. Not all of these girls were 
prizes either, one of them actually ate a bou- 
quet of flowers he gave her. From the begin- 
ning, Glen took an active interest in the sys- 
tem here, an active interest in non-participa- 
tion that is. Since he always claimed he was a 
non-drinker, not caring for certain types of liq- 
uid refreshments, he was uncanny how often 
Glen was found as high as everyone else at 
parties. Glen leaves with two outstanding 
achievements: he consistently slashed out in 
academics (bilging everyone else in the proc- 
ess); and he broke several weightlifting rec- 
ords. It was suspected, however, that he went 
out for weightlifting so he could enjoy plenty 
of rack time during "individual workouts." Al- 
though Glen has not yet decided what branch 
of the Navy he will enter, whatever his choice 
may be, he will bring to it sincerity.

Bob came here from Western Maryland 
after turning down offers from many other 
schools. Known mainly for his basketball tal- 
ents he has also shown us a lot on the social 
side, including a stunning performance in New 
York Youngster year at the feet of Col. Rock- 
ey. Bob also seems to have that talent of being 
able to "pull it out" at the end of every semes- 
ter. Known as being mild mannered, he has 
left a favorable impression on the minds of 
many people at Navy. After conquering four 
years of grueling studies, Coach Smalley, and 
all those beautiful girls he's been seen running 
around the campus with, he hopes to join the 
Marine Corps. Of course, that will have to take 
a back seat to the rack, girls, and rallies.

Don came straight to Navy from the "show 
me" state, having settled for "second best" 
when West Point ran out of places for him. He 
learned quickly like the rest of us, but unlike 
most, kept from losing his mind somehow and 
pulled through four years of academic practi- 
cally unscathed. "Willey" was probably the 
only person in the company who kept his 
gripes to himself and rationalized every "Navy 
good deal." Being an Army brat, Don never 
lost his love for the Army, and if possible, he'll 
get as close to it as possible. Don s completely 
unique liking for the military way of doing 
things was one of the few factors that kept the 
"hard-core 18" of us from looking completely 
civilian. We need to wish Wiley luck, not so 
much with women, but with their fathers. We 
know he'll stand out as a leader of men in 
whatever branch of the service he chooses. 
He's part of that 1% who has it in his blood to 
make something out of a military career. 


"Hogger" came directly to Navy from East 
Greenbush, New York, fun spot of the North- 
east. A fine wrestler in high school, he did 
most of his wrestling with the opposite sex at 
Navy. Bill earned the name "Hogger" after 
spending most of Youngster years Saturday 
nights out on the circle, and gradually working 
up to organized full-scale rallies with upstate 
New York's finest lovelies. His philosophy that 
"anyone can look good to you after a bottle of 
Cold Duck" won over many converts in Happy 
5. Hogs continuously slashed out in courses 
that no one else seemed to comprehend, but 
the big ones had a habit of keeping him off the 
Sup's List time after time. Bill s desire is to be 
a Navy flyer. Bill's ability to make the most of 
everything will insure him success at Pensaco- 
la and wherever else he may go. 


In June of 1968 Bob added USNA to his list 
f mailing addresses which had previously 
anged from sunny California to the moun- 
ins of South America to an "erotic" little 
sland in the West Indies. Always keeping his 
,rs open, R. L. arrived speaking fluent gutter 
Ipanish which enabled him to validate four se- 
esters of the language and still have enough 
left over to gross out any Spaniard who might 
be happening bv during a temper tantrum. To 
the delight of Fifth Company sports fans, he 
also acquired a South American soccer prowess 
n his travels. In the academic area. Bob be- 
came known for giving one-night crash courses 
certain of his ailing and exceedingly, appre- 
;iative classmates. Allin all, this willingness to 
lelp others coupled with his industrious atti- 
ude and all around ability should make Bob a 
jretty good boat driver. 


After spending a year at south Florida Mac 
decided to give up his carefree college days 
and come to Navy. Mac's dislike for classes, 
coupled with his frequent visits to Sick Bay, 
were the causes of his many clashes with the 
academic department. Mac always came out on 
top thanks to his fantastic ability to cram the 
night before. During the week Mac could be 
found at the card table, in the rack, or on the 
lacrosse field, but when the weekend came, he 
would settle down to some serious rallying. 
Mac continually amazed everyone with his fan- 
tastic ability to handle computer punch outs, 
his unique signal score, and nis vast collection 
of 5th Company mugs. Although at times he 
may get himself into some hairy situations, 
Mac's itching desire will always get him where 
he wants to go. 


Dick came to the Academy directly from a 
mall high school in warm and sunny Ft. Lau- 
lerdale, Fla., and the variety and spice of 
JSNA's life* has kept him traveling ever since. 
)ick was oft«n a study in contrasts. One night 
ou would find him quietly studying to the 
ound of Beethoven's 9th while the next you 
rould see the mastermind planning some devi- 
us late night mischief. The only real constant 

Dick's life at Navy was his QPR which never 
luctuated more than a micron despite the ef- 
orts of the Oceanography department. Ser- 
ice selection will find him headed for Pensa- 
ola preferably in green. That is, if he doesn't 
inish his career before it starts through a 
eckless and passionate pursuit of scuba and 


After spending a year getting himself to the 
top of his NROTC class at Ohio State as an En- 
gineering major, Clay switched to the social 
status of a mid at USNA and sweated and 
strained as a Chinese major. Here he re-estab- 
lished himself quickly and effectively as a 
leader and hard worker. We found out soon 
that these traits carried over into the real 
world as he will always lead a rally and didn't 
have to work too hard once. When not at a 
rally, Clay could be found, Colt in hand, rolling 
down turnpike off-ramps on his way to one. If 
his class standing turns out as well as his 
rallies, or his stomach muscles that are famous 
for their practical applications, Clay will take 
the hard way out — post grad days start at

After chalking up an impressive record at 
Loyola Academy in Chicago, Nuge proceeded 
to do likewise at USNA. He quickly estab- 
lished himself as a man prone to overreact to 
any and all situations by his lack of control as 
a Plebe during several come arounds. He aptly 
put it Second Class vear with the gem, "I ain't 
calmin' to be claim! ' Finding Nuge was usual- 
ly quite a chore, as he had a tendency to wan- 
der aimlessly. This problem was non-existent 
whenever there was a party in progress, for 
Nuge would surely be in the midst of it, often 
with Kathy (his O.A.O.), who may well be the 
only living person driftier than Nuge. After 
graduation it appears as if John's got his eye 
on Kathy and a Country Squire ("ain't 
sayin' "). With his determination and dedica- 
tion, success in all his future endeavors seems 


Jack arrived at the Academy from Joliet, 111. 
in the footsteps of an older brother who ad- 
vised him to spend "the best four years of his 
life" with Mother B. Coming here off an out- 
standing high school baseball career. Jack soon 
found that the "only way is underway," drop- 
ping varsity athletics for more dedicated pur- 
suits in the professional and academic areas, 
when someone had trouble with the academics, 
"Skoldsy" always came to the rescue with his 
golden slide rule. Jack has also compiled a very 
impressive "Black Book." Many of his class- 
mates arranged drags for Jack and Jack is now 
considering building a new wing with the 
bricks he has accumulated. Being a typical 5th 
Co. '72, Jack spent many a Saturday night at 
the local inns with spirits in one hand and com- 
panionship in the other. Whether he decides on 
a career in "da fleet" or not, Jack's 4 years of 
hard work have prepared him to conquer new 
heights and make a bundle. 


Vess, hailing from the farmlands of Indiana, 
could always be counted on for a vareity of 
things, namely, good grades, a sincere love for 
wine, and always being present at the weekly 
rallies. Looking for excitement and the good 
times. Bob could always be found either sky- 
diving or scuba diving, his two favorites which 
came second only to his battles with the oppo- 
site sex. Being one to take pride in what he 
does, Vess alwaj* excelled, whether in the 
classroom, on the athletic field, or at a party. 
His great congeniality and friendliness will 
hold him in good stead with everyone he works 
with and will make him one of the finest men 
to graduate from Mother Hank.

Joe came to Navy all fired up for Plebe sum- 
mer, and proceeded to lose thirty pounds of ex- 
cess fuel by its conclusion. Blessed with a crop 
of fiery red hair and even redder freckles, Joe 
always shows an unfailing sense of humor and 
a somewhat questionable pride in the land of 
his origins, Texas. His uncanny ability to justi- 
fy his excessive participation in losing 
struggles with the pad monster causes him to 
be one of the foremost authorities on rationali- 
zation. Joe has a particular affinity, or suscep- 
tibility, to distilled refreshment, and has been 
known to slide into an abyss of incoherency on 
numerous Saturday night outings. He has 
gained near notoriety in the halls of both the 
Penn. and Washington Sheratons. His lack of 
endurance in the art of drinking is truly unfor- 
tunate, but his tremendous determination and 
desire will surely overcome this problem, and 
the fruits of victory will be his. In a less seri- 
ous vein, Joe's cheerfulness and sincerity will 
certainly ensure him the greatest success in 
Navy boats or anything else he undertakes. 


Bob arrived at USNA from the booming 
megalopolis of De Queen, Arkansas, being in- 
fluenced to come to the Academy due to an 
older brother's g^-aduation from here. He left 
De Queen High as student body president, 
state discus champion, and also received many 
other honors while there. With these creden- 
tials. Bob could not miss at USNA. He quickly 
made friends with everyone and could be 
counted on for a "Woo Pig, Sooie," anytime. 
After one year of football at Navy, Bob de- 
cided to get down to more serious business, like 
"partying." Bob never had much trouble get- 
tmg around Annapolis and the surrounding 
area with "Sugar and Blue Dart," which he 
and his friends invested in. Bob never had 
much trouble with the academics at USNA, 
and constantly amazed his classmates with his 
high grades considering the amount of study- 
ing he did. One of his closest friends at USNA 
was always his pad. His favorite sports here 
were fieldball and lacrosse, and ne played 
them both during his three upperclass years. 
Bob is planning on spending much of his post 

Rraduate time on the bridge of a big boat, and 
e is looking for a nice port somewhere in Ar- 
kansas. He also appears to be a member of the 
Immediate Matrimony Program after gradua- 
tion. Whether Bob stays with his boat or de- 
cides on Civilian Line, ne will be ready to do a 
fine job in anything he does. 


Steve came to Navy from St. Albans, Ver- 
mont where his main interests were skiing, 
girls, brew, and sports. Undaunted by the 
rigors of Plebe year, the academic hardships, 
and the inherent restrictions Steve continued 
his mastery of the system, and appeared to be 
unstopable in his determination. Best known 
for his ability to have a good time and still 
abide by the regs Steve was "aboard" all 
parties and rallies. Steve has had little trouble 
with grades and has always stood first aca- 
demically in his room. Number nine on the 
grease charts and number one in the hearts of 
Fifth company Steve may" pick up the fallen 
CPO banner. This is subject to change. Steve's 
future is uncertain but the Marine Corps may 
?et the nod vice boats.

Andy, Ratso to his friends, came to the 
Naval Academy from House Springs, Missouri 
and quici<ly adapted to the Academy style of 
life. Grades never presented a problem to 
Andy although he never studies for more than 
two hours at a time. He quickly earned the 
reputation as one of the academy's top crib- 
bage players, a title he will undoubtably hold 
throughout his career. Known to all Plebes as 
the pizza man he spent many a Saturday night 
saving the Plebes from certain starvation. 
Ratso excelled in all sports and was a vital part 
of the company soccer and fieldball teams. 
Upon graduation- Andy will enter the silent 
service and with all his excellent qualities the 
surface Navy is assured of getting an excellent

I Hailing from the cold northland community 
I of Grand Rapids, "Hawg" brought to the 
I Academy his glowing personality and cold, 
I cutting wit. Plebe year was frustrating, not 
I for John, but for the upperclassmen. Academi- 
Ically, John liked Plebe year so much, he took 
I some of the courses over again. As an Analyti- 
Ical Management major, John perfected the use 
I of osmosis as a study aid, and replaced the 
I slide rule with a deck of cards. Youngster 
I cruise found John in the rack, as did Youngster 

J ear, Second Class year, and the remainder of 
is academic career. Although a charter mem- 
Iber of the Smokers Club, John excelled in in- 
Itramurals and equaled his fieldball playing 
I time with his time spent in the penalty box. 
,1 His cool, calculating eyes could occasionally be 
seen through his long flowing hair as he sped 
through his mile run, determined to complete 
it in one class period. John's determination and 
I warm personality will take him far. 


Dan came to Navy from Evanston, Illinois. 
He swam here for his first two years, then 
moved on to more interesting pursuits. His 
nickname was "Cork" — a tribute to the ani- 
mal-like creature he invented on Youngster 
cruise. He picked up an N* during Youngster 
year in swimming. Surface line will never see 
a finer gork. Dan will give it his all. 


Deep in Philadelphia's hidden forest of con- 
jcrete and brick, Joe spent his high school years 
dreaming about going to the Naval Academy. 
|lt wasn't till he finished one year at college 
hat this dream came true to the delight of a 
ery proud father and mother. During the four 
lyears spent in Mother Bancroft, he was victim- 
ized by a series of incidents that acquired him 
uch names as Vinny, Sunshine and Rag. Noto- 
rious for accepting blind dates despite some 
bad experiences, Joe B. continues in his search 
for the right girl even though this search is 
josting him a lot of money. Not being varsity 
material he spent most of his time in company 
ntramurals, Y.P. Squadron, and other ECA's. 
Convinced that he wants to fly in the Navy, 
Joe has been persuaded to spend some time ob- 
.aining his sea legs. Nevertheless he should do 
A^ell wherever he goes. 


A Navy Junior, Jeff skipped around a bit, 
before settling in sunny Fort Lauderdale, Fla. 
An avid lover of sandy, "White Xmas," "Koff" 
or "Vulture" was extremely proud of his Xmas 
leave tan. Considered by the recruiters to be a 
good football prospect, Jeff gave that and la- 
crosse a look, before directing his energies to 
his first love, sailing, while still keeping his 
prowess up with intramural football. Deciding 
that floating was better than marching, he 
was a four year member of the Shields varsity 
sailing team. A lover of boats, cars, girls, and 
other alcoholic things, Jeff was usually quiet 
mannered, but always ready with a word of 
advice. A friend to all, Jeff has the makings of 
a Navy blue "lifer," and will surely be. 


"Zero" came to USNA after a dull year of 
wine, women, and song as an ROTC at Au- 
burn. As an Air Force brat, Paul lived all over 
the country enjoying Nebraska and Boston the 
most. Plebe year found Paul making Sup's List 
Ooth semesters. While at the same time, he had 
1 friendly rivalry in casino with his favorite 
firstie. His song writing for the Plebe year 
Xmas party will long be remembered. Paul en- 
joyed the signs of Tiguana and the companion- 
ship of Seattle Sam and Ruby on Youngster 
;ruise. After opening a barber shop Youngster 
^ear, he was forced into retirement Second 

lass year. Paul started out in Plebe golf, but 
iwitched to the blue trampoline team. Paul ex- 
«lled in Handball, fieldball, wires, smoking, 
md swimming. Paul liked the zoo yard swim so 
nuch, he took it twice Youngster year. Good 
icotch and parties kept Paul busy when away 
"rom Mother B. Paul s friendliness and desire 
.0 excel will take him far in his career as a sur- 

ace line officer. 


John, after graduating from Reading High 
School in Reading, Pa. went to Bordentown 
Military Institute where he distinguished him- 
self in football and basketball as well as being 
a top scholar. After an exciting Plebe year, 
John began to seek the better things in life; as 
more than one member of the opposite sex will 
testify. Though known to do more than a little 
sleeping, John remained a fierce competitor 
with the academic department, (he could often 
be found on the Sup's List), company officers, 
(his car was a source of major problems), and 
in intramural sports. John joins the Surface 
Navy June 7th.

John, or "Tuna," as he was commonly 
known, came to USNA from Thousand Oaks, 
California. Never one to say "no" to his ever- 
loving pad, Tuna nonetheless kept his high ac- 
ademic status all four years. Additionally, 
John was an outstanding athlete, a hard-work- 
ing and really warm person. Tuna's first love 
was sailing — his four years as a varsity sailor 
attribute his skill. He was also an honest-to- 
Mother B. female-killer and constantly fasci- 
nated the gals with his complex ("three-di- 
mensional tic-tac-toe, anyone?") personality 
and keen sense for the ridiculous. Wherever he 
goes in his career to come, Tuna should master 
the ability to totally confound our fleet as well 
as the Russian Navy. In all honesty, John will 
make a terrific contribution with his warmth, 
sincerity, and genuine humanness towards his 
fellow man. 


Ken or "Ivies" as he is commonly known, 
came to Navy and quickly became the butt of 
the "Are you kidding me? — only 23 in your 
graduating class?!!" joke. Ivies was known for 
his common sense, love of surface line, and 
eternal farmboy good humor. In addition to his 
other achievements, Ken was captain of the 
nationally-ranked swimming sub-squad which 
the NAAA refused to send to the Nationals for 
the Handicapped. Ken will be remembered for 
his good sense of humor and his perpetual will- 
ingness to help out a classmate in need. A real- 
ly terrific guy, Ken should truly make a wel- 
come addition to the other's fleet. 


Calling South Carolina home and coming to 
the Academy from a short tour in the Navy, 
Pat soon discovered life at USNA a bit differ- 
ent from the rest of the Navy. He found plenty 
of time Plebe year to devote toward his favor- 
ite subjects, swimming and Math. Having ac- 
quired somewhat of a knack for these by the 
end of the year, he found more time to devote 
to the infamous YP's, where he enjoyed many 
memorable hours. His positive attitude toward 
all things Navy and conviction that a Navy ca- 
reer is the ultimate should be great attributes 
to him after graduation.

Joe, a Navy Junior, came to the Academy 
rem McLean, Virginia and soon proved his 

orth. True a friend as anyone could find, 
oe's willingness to borrow anything at any- 
ime is equalled only by his ability to bring 
lappiness to all with his bright, smiling face in 
he early morning hours. One of Joe's out- 
tanding traits is his ability to spend more time 
,t his desk than anyone, while learning less 
han anyone, yet maintaining smacking good 
trades throughout, Joe virtually drifted into 
he Academy and then proceeded to drift thru 
1 series of bizarre adventures which will long 
je remembered. Respect toward the fairer sex 
vas Joey's theme at the N.D. party. Then on 
I'oungster cruise he proved that a scotch in 
land equals a scotch in the yard, but he re- 
ieemed himself at Rutgers when he downed 
wo Singapore Slings, both in the same eve- 
ling. Second Class summer found Joe drifting 
hru Bermuda where he acquired the nick- 
lame of "Sloppy." But dreams of Corvettes 
,nd a lovely young ray of light brought Joe 
lack to Annapolis. Upon graduation Joe's eyes 
I'm fall on the surface of the sea where his 
Teat willingness to work hard and his friendly 
ersonality will result in certain success. 


Salt, as Chris was called ever since one for- 
mation during Plebe summer, came to the 
Academy from Oregon, Wisconsin and woe be 
unto the man who made fun of that state's 
athletic teams. His fierce pride showed up dur- 
ing all of our sports, particularly soccer and 
fieldball. Despite many tries to get an academ- 
ic number Salt always seemed to lose out on 
exams and never got to meet Admiral Calvert 
and His AcBoard. It did take a lot of hard 
work on Salt's part and many times when oth- 
ers were in the wardroom he was over at the li- 
brary working on one of his seemingly endless 
term papers. But his biggest problems were 
the pro-courses and as an indication of this his 
reaction to water and surface line was quite 
similar to a turkey's reaction to the chopping 
block. Whatever Chris decides to do out in the 
Navy his pride and drive are sure to make him 
a success. 


"A. G." entered the hallowed halls of Ban- 
■oft as "the hick from Omaha, Nebraska" to 
ain some etiquette and learnin'. He seemed to 
ave caught on very fast he was invariably 
)und on the Sup's and Dean's Lists. Being a 
,avy Junior, adjusting to the military life was 

ibag for A. G., too. Gary proved to be quite an 
tramural star in handball, fieldball, and soft- 
all. Always having an extreme will to win, he 
Iso belonged to the newly-formed USNA 

andball Club and again came through for the 

avy. Despite all upperclass warnings, Gary 
2came of those rare Plebes who became en- 
aged and even rarer didn't receive any "Dear 
)hn" letter. Thanks for helping him mto the 
(elusive club, Karen. Gary will be remem- 

red for his helpfulness and humor. After 
•aduation, he plans on careers in wedlock and 

"Nuke boats ' after two surface years. 


"Mike" came to the Naval Academy from 
Jacksonville, Florida. A Navy Junior a'l of his 
life, he has known many of the good points and 
bad points of being in the service. Mike was 
never one to slash out in academics, but he 
probably put more study hours in than any two 
of his compatriots combined, and he still 
seemed to come out on the short end of those 
Engineering quizzes. He was always very busy 
during his four years here. He loved the Acad- 
emy and wasn't afraid to try to improve it. He 
worked on NAFAC and within the class of '72 
Committee as a Battalion Rep. In addition to 
this he belonged to several other clubs here 
and was active in all of them. Mike possessed 
the great talent of being able to talk endlessly 
about anything and make you think he knew 
what he was talking about. A friend to every- 
one, he will be a very dedicated officer and an 
asset to the Navy. 



Tony came to the Academy from Forest 
[eights, Maryland and quickly established 
imself as a real intellect. His academic curios- 
y was exceeded only by his prowess in the 
dimming pool. He gained fame and lost a for- 
me in his under the table operations at the 
impany Army party Youngster year. Second 
lass summer established Tony as a real speed 
emon on the winding roads of Bermuda. His 
esire for speed was excelled only by his desire 
) be first in everything he did. While carrying 
n his traditions set at Army parties Tony was 
enied admission to the Men's Christian Tem- 
erance Union due to his relentless presence at 
le Pensacola BOQ bar. Combining his aca- 
Bmic achievement and adaptability to the 

ater with his many social graces, Tony has a 
lore than promising future.

Bill, also known as "Mack" came to the 
Naval Academy from Rockville, Md. After a 
rouffh time as a Plebe, he soon left that all be- 
hind (along with one certain first class who 
never graduated) getting involved with the ac- 
tivities at the Academy. Mack was usually 
quiet and easygoing. Even though he did spend 
long hours working in the Chem Lab, he 
wasn't noted as a studier. In fact he was noto- 
rious for his sleeping habits. For sports he 
played soccer and heavyweight football. On 
weekends that he wasn't dragging he could be 
found tangled in a mass of wires — usually 
trying to improve his stereo. Soon Bill became 
known as the Co. wires jock — "The Bubble 
Guin Electrician." His favorite pastimes, when 
not at Mother "B" were camping and skiing. A 
photogfraphy nut at heart he became involved 
with the Lucky Bag as a Youngster; soon find- 
ing himself one of the editors. Bill has a good 
attitude and outlook on life and should go far 
in a Naval Air career. 




Coming to the Naval Academy from Pitts- i 
burgh, Penn., Ted was one of those few mid- 1 
shipmen who was never beaten by the drudg-i 
ery sometimes associated with Academy life, j 
The company clown for four straight years, 
Ted always managed to smile and make people 
laugh, either with him or at him, wherever he | 
went. He never missed an opportunity to drag, 
even when his pinmate couldn't make it, and 
was always willing to risk a blind date. Ted 
was known throughout the company by a vari- 
ety of choice nicknames, ranging from "Zorba" I 
to "Pigchild," and could always be counted i 
upon to live up to every one. He was a regular 
member of the Sup's List, in spite of being an : 
Aero major, and an active player of company i 
sports all three sets. "T. R." managed to spread I 
himself and all his talents quite well during his ' 
four years at Navy and will certainly contmue 
to be a great source of high spirit and morale i 
wherever he may go. 


"Orville" from Southern California, came toi 
the Academy from high school and establishes 
himself as an athlete early in Plebe summer.^ 
He continued all four years as a three seasoni 
athlete in cross conntry, indoor and outdoop 
track, earning his first N' early Youngsten 
year. Dave was a debater, and while he seldom! 
lost a verbal battle, he never lost the ensuing 
fight (friendly, of course). He was a hard' 
worker in everything he attempted including 
academics, athletics and his never ending 
struggle for "a little more sincerity" in his fel- 
low men. Dave will be heading for surface line 
when he graduates.

"Spaget," a product of Auburn, New York, 
honored the Academy with his presence fol- 
lowing a year at the University of Mass. After 
a miserable year of fraternity life, (wine, 
women, and parties), Jeff was more than 
ready for the "security" of Mother "B". Plebe 
year spelled disaster for his love life, but a cer- 
tain Duck lifted his head above water and 
Chuck stole the bacon (for a while). In his 
spare hours (which are few), Jeff can usually 
be found having an intelligent conversation 
with Dumbo or Woodchuck, brassoing his 
shoes, or maybe studying the dictionary. Jeff is 
an enthusiastic Political Science major, and be- 
cause of consistent over-loads, he has been on 
the Sup's List the minimum number of times. 
A natural athlete, Jeff's contributions to the 
company handball and heavyweight football 
teams will long be remembered. After the caps 
go into the air, Jeff would like to take up resi- 
dence in Pensacola, but he has decided that 
maybe a couple of years at sea first would be 
more advantageous, to his plight as an Admir- 
al striker. Whatever branch Jeff goes into, the 
Navy will gain a top-notch leader! 


Steve or "Neums" as most people called him, 
spent a happy four years at the Academy. He 
came straight out of high school and Barns- 
ville, Minn, where his good nature had been 
well cultivated. It became his trademark here. 
Always one for conversation and ideas, his 
room usually was the scene of some kind of de- 
bate or plain clowning around; yet Steve's 
p-ades seldom suffered. He majored in Chem- 
istry simply because he enjoyed it and did well. 
His free time was usually divided between 
Debbie and the NA-10 with the nod probably 
going to the coed from Florida State Universi- 
ty. Afternoons at Navy would find Neums on 
the handball courts since he was a frustrated 
swimmer. It didn't bother Steve though. There 
is plenty of water off the bow of a destroyer. 


Known as "Mudbug" to his friends, Jim 
came to USNA as a reject "ROTC" from the 
University of Southern Mississippi. A YP skip- 
per as a second classman, as well as having a 
burning passion for the mile-run and swim- 
ming, characterizes him. He will be long re- 
membered for his intense studying of Rod 
McKuen and can be usually be found in pursuit 
of truth while observing the ceiling over his 
bunk. At various times he may also be found in 
pursuit of the fairer sex — at least one of 
which he falls in love with annually. A firm 
background Operations Analysis should pre- 
pare him for an outstanding career as a sur- 
face line officer, however Jim will be a suc- 
cessful officer in any branch of the Navy. 

Five Hundred Sixty-Three 


Gary came to the Academy from Canon 
McMillan High School and his accent easily 
identified him as a Western Pennsylvanian. 
When he wasn't eating jelly beans, playing 
sports, or imitating a bilge pump, Gary could 
generally be found studying. He was frequent- 
ly on the Sup's List and maintained a good 
class standing from the beginning. Gary also 
managed to spend a good deal of time at sports 
and could normally oe found working out in 
the gym every afternoon. We would always 
count on Gary to execute or plan an over the 
wall escapade before the Army game. His sin- 
cere dedication and his hard work will make 
Gary an outstanding Naval officer. 



Jim came to the Academy directly from high 
school in White Plains, New York. Adjusting 
to the rigors of Navy life was no problem to 
"Seels" and he soon found himself on both the 
Dean's and Sup's Lists after the first semester. 
Between weekends with a certain blonde from 
Hood College, he has continued his fine per- 
formance academically and professionally and 
has built a reputation as a hard worker, and a 
leader among his classmates. With his goal 
well organized, Jim was a frequent participant 
in company and battalion sports, especially 
squash, and he was never one to be left out 
when there was a "shower party" to be given. 
A physics major, and member of the Chapel 
Choir, Jim has taken full advantage of nisi 
Academy education, and after graduation will 
divide his time between a surface Navy careen 
and his future bride. 


Zokes, Black Cloud, Polish Sausage, or what' 
ever you want to call him, came to USNA fron 
Grand Rapids, Mich., where he keeps his heari 
true to his "one and only" girl. (That is, exceptj 
for the weekends when he was on a "blim. 
date.") Mike racked up a couple of Black "N's' 
during his first two years but settled dowii 
somewhat after that (even though voted Sixtlj 
Company Hog three years straight). He spenj 
many hours at the library studying Aero, an(| 
he has always seemed to come up with thi'i 
grades though, by the way he talked each se- 
mester, it seemed he had one foot already ou' 
the door. He played varsity golf and compan; ^ 
intramurals and was always a fierce competi 
tor. Mike could always be counted on by hi 
classmates in a pinch and always seemed 1 1 
keep a smile. He will be a fine Naval officer 1

A native of Long Island, Roosh spent five 
exciting semesters enjoying the wonderful 
world of Math, his favorite subject. The mili- 
tary side of life at Navy never presented much 
of a problem, but adacemics never held much 
interest for him. After having Wolfie and 
Scuba for neighbors during Plebe year, Steve 
never was the same. His principal athletic ac- 
complishment lay in his bemg the only member 
in the class to become a skin diver during 
Plebe summer, but he later found fieldball, 
slow-pitch, and padometrics to be to his liking. 
A one-woman man since his arrival at USNA, 
Steve could often be found writing to his girl 
or family. Looking forward to a career in the 
Naval service, Steve's enthusiasm and sense of 
humor should be valuable assets wherever he 


Hailing from Cincinnati, Ohio, where he was 
All-City in both football and track, Smitty 
quickly took to the easygoing life of the mili- 
tary. After a difficult and exhausting Plebe 
year, he settled down to studying for his engi- 
neering major. He was always known for his 
spotless room and even more famous for his 
excursion to D. C. Youngster year. One of the 
better athletes in the company, he played foot- 
ball for three years and was on the track team 
Plebe year. First Class year found him packing 
in the books and rather popping the top of his 
favorite brand. Smitty s easygoing nature, 
mild temper and charismatic leadership will 
make him a success wherever he goes. 


Willie, a Navy junior, came to the Academy 
from Falls Church, Va., and quickly estab- 
lished himself as the most unheralded, unsus- 
pected and unobtrusive financier in the compa- 
ny. It was well in to Youngster year before he 
deservingly earned the title of Dr. Williams, 
O.B. His athletic skills were almost as signifi- 
cant. Willie's achievements on the company 
football team were excelled only by his smash- 
ing squash games and tenacious tennis match- 
es. Leave time usually found him either skiing 
or looking for hops to Missouri. His great 
penchant for the finer culinary skills should 
make him a man destined for kitchen duty. A 
more dedicated friend would be hard to find. 
Bob is certain to follow in the footsteps of his 
father as a successful submariner.

The Navy found Larry skiing the slopes at 
Squaw Vallev on one of his "special" vacations 
from high school. "The Arab" as he's known to 
his many friends, has never been one to sweat 
the system, yet through Plebe year escapades 
and frequent bakery raids he's maintained a 
near perfect record. After weathering heavy 
seas in the Bull Department Plebe year, he 
steamed ahead full to a 4.0 Youngster Year 
and an equally impressive academic prowess 
thereafter. Classmates moaned on the first day 
of classes when he walked in and their imag- 
ined curve walked out, but they always had a 
quick change of heart when tests rolled 
around. His biggest thrill at Navy was being 
informed he was married and had fathered a 
child in Ashtabula, Ohio. He said, "it was the 
other Larry Albert," . . . yeah, sure!! His long 
time ambition, to attend nuclear power school 
and sail beneath the seven seas (the only 
way!), will surely be fulfilled come June of 72. 


Steve Eads, a desert rat from Sin City, Nev- 
ada, became known early in his career at 
USNA as "Bead" (because he was such a 
sweat, of course). Steve had an old-fashioned 
Plebe Year — the upperclass hated his guts. 
No one who saw him then will ever forget him 
waddling down the hall on 15 pair of sweat 
gear with an "I don't believe this is happening 
look" on his face. He is also remembered for 
taking command of his platoon during 100th 
Night of Plebe Year and throwing out the 
clutch when the OOW came to inspect. Having 
almost flunked Plebe Chemistry he therefore 
became a Chem Major. He played many sports 
including heavyweight football, squash, soccer, 
and golf. Navywise, submarines are his first 
love with anything else a close second. Al- 
though he never wore stars on his uniform, he 
had them in his eyes for Lucy. June Week will 
find him sprinting to the marriage mill after 
graduation to put on another ring at USNA. A 
considerate friend and a hard worker, he will 
give the fleet its due. 


Hailing from the queen city of Cincinnati, 
Ohio, Thorne (or "Lumpy" as he was affection- 
ately known by the troops" ) entered the Canoe 
Club right out of high school with stars in his 
eyes and football on his mind. With a personal- 
ity that would not quit, Thorne had no prob- 
lems getting along with even the most diffi- 
cult of people. Whenever our spirits needed 
boosting we could always depend upon him for 
a quick joke or anecdote that would make even 
Mount Rushmore smile. Everyone here will re- 
member Thome's ability to distort and rear- 
range names — especially Barnacle Bill. With 
Navy line in the offing, Thorne has three big 
things on his mind — his ring, his diploma, and 
a June Week wedding!

One of the most outgoing party men of the 
7th Company, the "Coach" gave up the good 
life at UCLA to come to Navy. Known for his 
ever present smile and his quick wit, he was al- 
ways one to brighten up a room. An athlete of 
distinction, and a lover of reknown, many a 
study hour was spent rehashing his exploits in 
both fields. His prowess in circles and engi- 
neering was unsurpassed, and his room was al- 
ways filled with numerous classmates seeking 
aid. "Coach" will always be remembered for 
his strenuous efforts to control his weight. Un- 
decided concerning his service selection, June 
of '72 will find "Coach" heading for the bound- 
ing main. 


Born a Navy Junior, Terry came to the 
Naval Academy straight from John F. Kenne- 
dy High School in Willingboro, New Jersey. 
While there, he specialized in soccer and tennis 
with the latter being his favorite. He brought 
this fierce spirit of competitiveness to the 
Academy; and could always be found challeng- 
ing someone in any sport of their choosing. A 
firm believer in never wasting rack time, 
Terry and the reveille bell never did get along 
well. If you didn't find Terry in his room 
studying, you could find him out on the Bay 
ready to race for the Naval Academy sailing 
team. After a hard week of racing, Terry 
would hit the "Circle" and find all sorts of neat 
things to keep him happy for the upcoming 
week. With his strong will and keen sense of 
competition, Terry will certainly make his 
presence felt in the fleet. 


It's rumored that Bob may be one of the 
Founding Fathers of that little-known south- 
western colony, Oklahoma. Hailing from 
Altus, Dar put in full seasons at a real college 
and NAPS before becoming SWEAT SEV- 
EN'S MOST elderly hand. After outstanding 
grid careers in high school and at NAPS, Bob 
played Plebe ball, but soon discovered the good 
life in Navy intramurals. Dar spent most of his 
Plebe year convincing the skeptics that he 
could, amongst other things, speak English, 
pass German, and recite poetry. Since then, he 
nas excelled in all areas of Academy life, being 
a Sup's List candidate from the Aero Depart- 
ment, a solid athlete, and a highly respected 
member of our clan . . . Unless he can con- 
vince the PT people that it's easier to crawl 
across the bottom of the pool than to swim 
across the top of it, Dar probably won't be 
going UDT-SEALS; but the years after gradu- 
ation should find Bob establishing his friendly 
disposition and outstanding leadership ability 
in the blue skies of Navy Air. 


Bruce, otherwise known as Gino, Quat, Chas, 
Quaeman, etc., came to USNA from Bristol, 
Connecticut by way of Bullis Prep. He was al- 
ways the one to entertain us during the early 
morning hours, when we should have been 
studying. Reveille always seemed a bit early 
for Quat, and it wasn't until Second Class Year 
that he learned to shave the night before . . . 
thus he didn't have to splash water on his face 
before the sun rose! Just like the rest of us, he 
was a crammer but a rather successful one! 
Surface Line will be his service selection, prob- 
ably because submarines and airplanes leave 
him wide-eyed with terror! A vet, a ring, and a 
diploma are the summation of his dreams. 
Bruce will never be forgotton by '72 of 7th 
Company. Surely his quick wit and great per- 
sonality will have a positive effect upon the 


Dropping in from Seton Hall Prep in South 
Orange, New Jersey, Pat has spent an enjoy- 
able but dedicated four years at the Academy. 
Known as "Little" to his close friends, Pat has 
surmounted and excelled in all facets of his life 
as a midshipman. Pat has continued his high 
academic standards at USNA, compiling a J. 
0. + strain. His penetrating eyes and demand- 
ing personality have awed many a Plebe and 
certainly will enhance his effectiveness as a 
Marine officer. On a lighter side> Pat's easygo- 
ing nature and quick humor have done much to 
enlighten Mother Bancroft. With the ever- 
present thoughts of Nancy clouding his mind, 
Pat's post-graduation bachelor days will be 
few, if any at all. The Corps will be richly re- 
warded by Pat's services.

Jerry, affectionately called "the WUT," 
came to USNA straight from high school in 
Woodbridge, Connecticut. Being a Navy Jun- 
ior, he had little trouble adjustmg to the rou- 
tines of Academy life; however, his study hab- 
its, or lack of study habits, did not make life 
during academic year too pleasant. Many a 
night an expected quiz or a reading assign- 
ment gave way either to his tube or his pre- 
cious pad. After a season on the Plebe soccer 
team, Jerry turned to company sports where 
he excelled in soccer, football and softball. He 
robably will most be remembered, though, for 
is two hour solo hike in Quantico, something 
that few, who were there, will ever forget. A 
Mathematics Major, Jerry plans on future 
studies in computers and when he finishes his 
obligation on the water, he plans to take to the 
Air and a most promising career. 



Navy forever became "one up" on George- 
town U. when Vince decided to enter our hal- 
lowed halls. With a list of nicknames almost as 
wide as his popularity, Vince was known as 
"Spike," "Bill," "Rubble," "Barnacle" or "Wil- 
liam" just to mention a few. He will, however, 
remain in the minds of many of his classmates 
as "Barney." Barney, always first to "hit the 
showers" at reveille and seldom cheating the 
pad monster at night, frequented the Sup's 
List. His ability as a Math Major as paralleled 
only by his dexterity in the squash courts and 
his speed on the track. Jaws dropped to the 
turf in amazement as 5'6", 190 lb., Barney led 
his heat during his Youngster mile run! The 
submarine service will be "one up" on all the 
others when the pride of sprawling Dushore, 
Pennsylvania graduates. 


R. A. began his quiet sojourn on the Severn 
after graduating with honors from Hornell 
High in the backwoods of western New York. 
Despite some tense moments at the start, Dick 
quickly realized that Plebes should not be seen, 
much less heard and easily settled into the de- 
manding routine at USNA. In the mystical 
world of academics, Dick has more than suc- 
ceeded with a combination of dedication and 
long hours at the books. Regarded by the un- 
derclassmen as one of the few "tight" people 
left, Dick has required the same high degree of 
discipline from his subordinates that he does of 
himself. Seen frequently on the golf course 
and even more frequently in the pad, Dick has 
subtly made important contributions to life at 
Navy and in all areas from spirit to sports and 
leadership on the way. Upon graduation, 
"Moo" plans to continue enjoying the fruits of 
bachelorhood for quite some time. His pres- 
ence will be missed in the Halls of Mother "B." 
A perfectionist at heart, Dick has proven to be 
a reliable and valued friend and can't help but 
continue his fine record in whatever branch he

"Big Ed" or "The Gar," was a happy go 
lucky type who always had a joke and a smile 
for anyone. Ed came from the USMC where 
for two years he was a Avionics Technician, 
and just before he could pin on his sergeant 
stripes. After his first I-V2 years Ed was in the 
groove. Ed claims to have statemented his way 
out of more Class "A's" and to be the only mid 
to "nickle and dime" his way to over 150 de- 
merits in one semester. A hard working Man- 
agement Major like Ed was a great work horse 
for the Trident Society, Photo Club, PEP pro- 
gram, and Phys. Ed. Dept. At any football 
game he could be found on the sidelines shoot- 
mg the game. A likeable personality, that gift 
of gab and his plans for a career in the military 
add up to a commission in the USMC for "Gar ' 
as a helicopter pilot. 


Greg came to the Academy after a year at 
Georgia Tech where he was a K and NROTC. 
A native Georgian, Greg told many a tale 
about Southern belles and the "good" life. The 
excitement of new adventures was his greatest 
love. He lived a dangerous life while at the 
Academy in the Scuba Club, Batt football, sky 
diving team and a semester at Catholic Chapel, 
but paid dearly with several broken limbs. 
Greg was never one to waste study hour — 
studying, however his name appeared on Sup's 
List several times. While he was sometimes the 
victim of pranks, he always replied with a good 
natured, "I ain't speaking to you." Always 
willing to pass a good deal down the line, he 
was heard to sav more than once, "Such a deal 
I have for you.' The future sees Greg an asset 
to the Navy flying a F14 — probably in a full 
body cast! 


Straight from high school, the lure of Pur- 
due was strong for Gary. But the lure of the 

I sea was stronger. Navy won and has been win- 
ning ever since. Gary, a native of Scottsburg, 

' Indiana, has been valuable to the company by 
providing the conservative midwest element. 
A regular member of the Sup's/ Dean's Lists, 
academics never seemed to bother him, possi- 
bly because he studied. A contradiction of 
teams, a Physics Major and a debater, Gary fi- 
nally saw the light and switched to volleyball 
and touch football. Next to Navy, his greatest 
love is a fast 'Vet' and the open road. Gary will 
probably be remembered most for his subtle 
numor and quiet ways. After graduation he 
plans to enter the 'Silent Service' where he 
will be a welcome addition to any wardroom. 


Hailing from Jacksonville, Fla., Bill arrived 
at the hallowed halls of Navy directly after 
high school where he graduated seventn in his 
class as well as getting a very strong back- 
ground in music, something that made him a 
valuable asset as he "drummed and stumbled" 
with the D&B Corps each fall. In the next two 
sets Bill devoted a lot of his time to company 
sports where in the winter you could find 
"Mercury" out with heavyweight football 
trying to throw one over for 6 or "toe" one for 
3, and in the spring on the slow pitch field 
trying to put one in the river. The courses in 
Bill's Oceanography coupled with his Southern 
education usually kept him studying hard, but 
he always managed to come out above par. 
Also devoted to marrying "that girl" as soon as 
he can after graduation. Bill plans on a chal- 
lenging career with the surface Navy where 
his interest and "do your best" attitude will 
make him a dynamic success. 


On June 26, 1968 the community of South 
Glenns Falls, N. Y. lost a most respected mem- 
ber, and the class of '72 gained a valuable addi- 
tion. As a member of the heavyweight crew 
team we oft times wondered about Dave's san- 
ity, but he showed ample evidence of this 
whenever grade cards came out. After the 
troubled waters of Plebe year, Dave was a ha- 
bitual member of the Sup's List, and several 
times was found to be wearing stars. Never 
one to deny his friends, Dave was in constant 
demand to help his classmates with any aca- 
demic problem. He showed himself to be equal- 
ly adept at solving the problem of the reveille 
inspector. Easygoing, and with a friendly smile 
for everyone, Dave ma^e many friendships 
which will last him a lifetime. Upon gradua- 
tion he expects to become a member of the Ma- 
rine Corps, and will take with him not only the 
knowledge, and professionalism of an out- 
standing officer, out also the determination 
and Pride of a respected man. 


A native of Riverside, California, Jack was 
the youngest member of the company. Being 
the youngest, however, did not deter him from 
fairing well in academics. Finding his name on 
the Sup's and Dean's Lists was a common oc- 
curence to him, although studying was quite 
foreign — he learned through osmosis in a hor- 
izontal position. Known as "Svend" or "Jack- 
son," Jack was a member of the varsity sailing 
team for 3 years. During the off-season, Jack 
could be found plajang touch football, squash. 
After graduation Jack has ambitions of enter- 
ing nuclear power school. Whatever submarme 
he finally reports to will surely have inherited 
a fine officer.

Coming to Annapolis from Clinton, Mass., 
John soon discovered that his Polish ancestry 
made him the object of many a joke. Never let- 
ting this bother him, he became an integral 
part of seventh company. Known as "Nos ' or 
'Wha," John could often be found picking at 
his puitar for half an hour before study hour 
or listening to the Beatle's "Hey Jude, ' with 
the lights off. As soon as 1945 came though, 
John headed directly for the library for an eve- 
ning of study. It was there that he gained the 
knowledge necessary to place him on the Sup's 
List and Dean's List. Having an easygoing per- 
sonality and a determined attitude, John will 
be a welcome addition to any wardroom in the 


After one year of college in his hometown of 
Lawton, Oklahoma, Mike, otherwise known as 
"Furtive Creature," chose Navy over the other 
academies (he is still wondering about his rea- 
sons for this). His Math major has never given 
him any trouble. Consistently losing battles 
with the "pad monster" didn't keep him from 
several appearances on the Sup's List. Compa- 
ny sports always benefited whenever Mike's 
swift foot made its showing on the soccer and 
fieldball fields. Known for his ability to win a 
bet and his easygoing attitude, Mike will go a 
long way (straight up) as an aviator. 


Swaheeli came to the soggy shores of Canoe 
U. from the lost world of Iowa. (Where is 
Iowa?) John quickly had Plebe summer under 
control as he found an undetected sanctuary 
behind his pad during come-around periods. 
With the start of the academic year John im- 
mediately rose to the top of his class being on 
more than equal ground with the book world, 
he consequently spent more time doing other 
peoples homework than his own. John's ability 
was by no means limited to the classroom as he 
proved to be a more than able competitor on 
the Plebe wrestling team, batt football and nu- 
merous other company teams. With the arrival 
of Second Class year also came the arrival of 
Janine — from then on John was the com- 
panies 5-% day mid. With his seemingly end- 
less drive and quick wit, John is assured of suc- 
cess whatever path he may choose after gradu-

Following in his father's footsteps, Mac ac- 
Icepted a 4 year membership at the Severn 
iRiver Country Club and arrived golf clubs in 
Ihand. With the unique ability of being able to 
Ipull good grades with the minimum amount of 
Istudy and the maximum amount of sleep, Mac 
Ibreezed through the rigors of USNA with lit- 
Itle trouble and proved himself equally adept 
Ion the golf course. Few people, however, have 
■heard all the tales of his sometimes costly and 
often fruitless exploits with the opposite sex, 
despite his having all the Qualities that nor- 
Imally sweep girls off their feet. Although un- 
decided upon service selection, there can be no 
'doubt that Mac's motivation and ability to in- 
fluence others will be a welcome and valuable 
laddition to whatever career field he enters. 


John Rainey hails from Palo Alto, Califor- 
nia. Could you guess it is known as Rains to ev- 
eryone! Always ready to get up a "B" ball- 
game or a little touch football, that is, if the 
ever present rack wasn't beckoning. Rains has 
a keen interest in all athletics and could al- 
ways be counted on for an accurate commen- 
tary of the wardroom football games. John 
was a member of the Plebe football team and 
played varsity ball 3/c year, a split end. Rains 
was well liked by all of sweat seven and was 
always on top of the situation. Coming from a 
Navy family Rains took the Chesapeake U of 
Naval Technology in stride. John, a history 
maior, has a little trouble with 2-1-2 but he will 
still be a credit to Navy Air. 


Hailing from Smithtown, Long Island, 
5mitty quickly learned how to excel at the 
Academy. During his first year Smitty showed 
lis maturity and dedication by distinguishing 
limself as one of the few exceptional leaders 
)f our class. Smitty spent Plebe Summer and 
^lebe Year on the Plebe gymnastics team 
vhere he excelled on the rings with his 
'super" iron cross. Third and Second Class 
'ear found Smitty tearing up the intramural 
ields with his fierce play. Smitty's room was 
ilways a place to find a good bull session going 
night and day). Academics posed no problems 
:ven though he punched the first coast button 
foungster Year after validating many courses 
nd building up gravy Plebe Year. After grad- 
lation Smitty is headed for a bright career in 
'Juclear Power. 


Bob Spahr, known to his compatriots as 
"Spock," came to sweat seven from Kings 
Park, Long Island, During his sojourn at Navy, 
Bobby starred for the varsity soccer team, 
where he started at halfback for 3 years, and 
the basketball team. He usually possessed suf- 
ficient mastery of the courses in nis Analytical 
Management major to wear stars. In the few 
moments when he managed to escape the evil 
and omnipresent clutches of the pad monster, 
Bob spent his spare hours dreaming of his Cor- 
vette or a certain nurse in New York City and 
trying to decide which was his first love. 
Weekends found Spock firmly entrenched in 
the wardroom loyally rooting for the Jets, 
Knicks, or Mets in the face of strong anti-New 
York sentiments. Upon completion of his stay 
at USNA, Bob will lend his many talents to 
Navy Air for an undetermined number of 


Derels followed his brother at USNA from 
Jurnt Hills, New York and immediately be- 
ame known as the seventh company slash 
vith the baby face. His academic prowess has 
)een a help to everyone in the company. Bruce 
lot only excelled in academics but was also a 
op man on the batt tennis team. During the 
iff-season Vanders can be found sailing, on 
he slopes or drinking with his Irish buddies, 
^fter graduation he is looking forward to fur- 
her education and then MSO duty. Vanders 
nil be most remembered for his early morning 
laps in the shower. 


Wally, alias Bruce, entered USNA from 
Oshkosh, Wisconsin. After "hiding out" in 3260 
for the entire Plebe Summer, Wally emerged 
as a full fledged member of the class — an 
event not entirely to his liking. Never one for 
the softer sports, Wally has been an active par- 
ticipant in fieldball and rugby from the start. 
Since he chose the water route, Wally decided 
to go all the way. He chose "Ocean" for his 
major complete with fluid and thermo. He 
never let this bother him, however, as he pol- 
ished off almost every evening with his model 
making, science fiction reading, or rap sessions 
with Tiny. Wally displays a strong attraction 
toward F-4's, but he will undoubtedly be a suc- 
cess at whatever he does.

"B. L. B. A.," better known as "Bert" by his 
friends, is a quiet, semi-conservative, indivi- 
dualistic person whose main objective during 
his 4 years at USNA was getting out, and to do 
that he had to work for the grades to stay in. 
When not academically engaged, his activities 
encompassed an uncommon scope. Company 
soccer, lightweight football, softball and the 
Catholic Choir, along with different and per- 
sonally enjoyable activities, such as roller skat- 
ing, attempts at unicycling and a host of oth- 
ers, earned him his individualistic title. To 
carry out his original intention, by making a 
career in the surface Navy, is still his hope. 
After a June wedding back home in Boston, 
Massachusetts, Bert will be one of the few 
men who will marry the girl he left behind 
when he came to USNA. 


Jon, sometimes called Pooh, came to the 
Academy from Prairie Village, Kansas. Previ- 
ously he had spent a year at Purdue where he 
was lucky to meet a girl named Syd. After a 
long wait, Jon finally gave her the ring. He got 
off to a slow start in academics Plebe year, but 
he managed to stay on the Sup's or Dean's 
Lists the remaining three years. Jon was the 
only man in the Brigade to be fried for his hair 
one hour after getting a reg haircut. His desire 
to fly and his Aeronautical Engineering major 
were well matched. Jon's dislike for boats is 
only eoualled by his hatred for the "grunts." 
The only green outfit he'll be seen in his scout- 
master's uniform. After getting to Pensacola, 
Jon warns all to "stay out of my sky." 


An Air Force brat, Leif was in Japan when 
he received his appointment to the Naval 
Academy. A world-wide traveller, his four 
years at the Academy marked the longest time 
that he had ever lived anywhere. After a slow 
start academically Plebe year, he has consist- 
ently been on the Dean's List and Sup's List, 
although the Dean's List was admittedly a lit- 
tle shakey after Second Class Summer since — 
that is when he met Elaine. Meeting her was 
easily the best thing that happened to him dur- 
ing nis stay at the Academy, and he soon 
learned that the seven mile limit and no civil- 
ian clothes were only for those that worried 
about them. He is actually probably best 
known for the time that he spent talking to 
Elaine on the telephone. It looks like a Surface 
Line selection for Leif upon graduation.

"Patch" hails from Newhall-Saugus-Va- 
lencia Valley, the garden spot of Southern Cal- 
ifornia. He has put in many long hours trying 
to run over hurdles for the varsity track t«am 
as well as contributing much effort to getting 
around the "hurdles" set up by the academic 
jepartment. The one thing that Blake will 
probably be longest remembered for is nothing 
Df his own doing, but rather, his two beautiful 
sisters. Slowly balding, he is not certain 
whether it is due to his majoring in Aeronauti- 
cal Engineering or just a tight fitting cap. 
Hoping to go Navy Air after serving his time 
A'ith Navy Line, Patch would like to eventual- 
y become an astronaut. Not being much of an 
ndividual for organizations, he has always en-

Blaine never had to look farther than his 
first name for a nickname. An Ohio State foot- 
ball fan, he left Cleveland, Ohio looking to see 
the world and somehow ending up in Annapo- 
lis. During his stay behind the walls, he was 
able to get home switched from suburbia to 
somewhere out in the country near Youngs- 
town. Enjoying everything a little his only 
major concerns were academics (occasionally), 
the rack (always), and people, (some girl, some- 
where). Retiring from crew after Plebe year 
he entered into a varied collection of company 
and battalion sports. Known for liking peace 
and quiet, good scotch and popcorn he was 
often found on his way to his second home on 
the far side of D. C. Majoring in Oceanogra- 
phy, and hoping someday to use it, Blaine is 
looking forward to the sub-surface. 


A native of Annapolis, Dave left home to 
spend sometime living under the rigid liberty 
jolicies of NAPS and the real Navy before re- 
;urning to Annapolis and the confines of the 
Academy. Dave, or Weasel, as he was so appro- 
)riately dubbed by his friends, never seems to 
)e able to get enough to eat at meals. Howev- 
r, he possesses the uncanny ability of scroung- 
ng an abundance of food in the mess hall 
vhen everyone else has failed, to help appease 
he growls of his stomach. His afternoons are 
ledicated to pulling an oar for the lightweight 
rew team. While losing a few pounds in the 
pring so that he can make weight and earn his 
^," Dave has occasionally been heard to say, 
I'm hungry" or "Wanna make something of 
t?" Even though he eats a lot, he will be re- 
nembered most for his famous laugh, which 
an be heard above the roar of any crowd. 
Jpon g7"aduation though, Dave foresees a long 
uture with the Naval Service, be it in Marine 
Teen or Navy Line. 


"Rod" came to the Naval Academy from the 
nearby town of Vienna, Virginia. Never being 
one to study too much, John found other "ac- 
tivities" in which to devote his efforts. He took 
an active part in sports at Navy both on the 
company and battalion level and a short stint 
on varsity spring ball. John was a charter 
member of the "group" and the "circle boys." 
Early in his Naval Academy years, John could 
be found on the circle every Saturday night. In 
his later years, John never missed a muster 
even if it was just by telephone. John is look- 
ing forward to many more "accountabilities" 
in the future. As an Oceanography major, sur- 
face line has always been his first choice. 



"Endy," a native of Eden (formally Leaks- 
ille). North Carolina, was fresh out of high 
chool when he entered the Naval Academy. 
)avid had to work hard for grades in order to 
tay in the upper half of his class. A foreign af- 
airs major, his favorite motto was "When in 
oubt, use nuclear power." All work and aca- 
emics wasn't his bag though, so Dave spent 
lany hours on Navy's athletic fields in the in- 
'ramural programs. The scuba and sports- 
lan's clubs were Dave's favorite ECA's with 
is job as varsity Navy Protestant acolyte puU- 
ig a close third. In the early morning hours 
lOu could find Dave with the other pep in- 
tructors chiming in with Heinz Lenz in those 
lemorable words "Men, "take of yur vite 
irks" and later "Don't throw-op un the tar- 
in." Dave's attitude, devotion, and loyalty 
lould insure him success as a Naval officer. 


Mark came from Miami, Florida in a fit of 
temporary insanity. His father was a PFC in 
the Army, so determined not to live in the 
shadow of his father's past accomplishments 
he chose the Blue. Not having been much of a 
jock in high school he brought little to the 
Navy sports scene except a hairy chest. 
Springs and Falls he eventually found a place 
on a yawl fordeck usually under a spinaker. 
"(sheeting!)" In the Winters he bled on the 
fieldball field. His academics started slowly 
with two semesters on probation but have 
since then petered out to almost nothing. He 
hopes to graduate in the Class of '72 and drive 

Five Hundred Seventy- Seven 


Charlie George, Chuck to some people, Buck 
to his Mom, ended up at good ole Canoe U. 
with the Class of 72. He has never figured out 
if it was an end or a beginning, in fact his mind 
is almost gone. Called crazy by some, some no 
saner than he. Chuck is thinking along the 
lines of Marine Aviation. He might have diffi- 
culty flying however, his Dad, an ex-Marine, 
promised him he'd break both legs if he went 


Rick came to the Academy with stars in his 
eyes and has had them on his lapels ever since. 
A natural, he was never one to sweat the aca- 
demics but always stood ready to put down his 
sci-fiction to help a neighbor eek through 
wires or skinny. Just getting by always meant 
being on top to Rick, whether it was command- 
ing nis Y.P., coaching his fieldball team or 
enjoying his Dean's List weekends. A man 
with his head in the clouds. Rick is determined 
to think deep and spend his time with the si- 
lent service, where his leadership and intellect 
will serve him in good stead. 



"Steiner" decided in high school not to go to 
college, so he entered the Naval Academy 
after graduation. Finding life there much to 
his liking, he adjusted eventually to the de- 
mands of military routine, making friends eas- 
ily during his four year stay at USNA. Wally 
never really tried his luck at beating the sys- 
tem, since the system always found time to 
beat him. His interests at the boat school were 
Oceanography, wrestling and football on the 
intramural level, and getting back late on 
weekends. His luck at blind dates was unfail- 
ingly bad, but he kept going back for more, 
playing the odds of a nice one showing up 
someday. His classmates never came through. 
The first from West Deptford High School in 
Woodbury, New Jersey, he showed the way 
well for others to follow.

Originally "a city slicker" but really a "coun- 
tryboy" at heart, "Toad" now lives in a small 
rural town in Virginia. "Toad," having a com- 
petitive spirit, played on several brigade cham- 
pionship basketball teams and could be seen al- 
most at any time out on one of the fields get- 
ting a game up. He was never one to hide his 
feelings, makmg dependable friends rather 
than stripes. Often a member of the Sup's List, 
he plans on going to graduate school and 
spending some time in the Navy. Booze and 
iwomen are his favorite pasttime. Being ex- 
tremely idealistic and individual, he stands out 
)f the crowd. 


Navy's answer to William F. Buckley, fast 
talking Joe is the master of verbal wit and the 
chief offender of the one-liner. Quick witted, 
Joe moved to be equally as quick with his fists 
as he boxed his way to the Regimental finals 
Plebe summer. A burden of hard work came 
for Joe, leading '72 as its class President for 2 
years and then as Brigade Commander. Some- 
how, Joe found enough time to actively partici- 
pate in the Little Brothers of America, to 
spearhead the POW project, and to assist in 
such projects as helpmg Indians on Western 
Reservation. A confirmed nightowl, Joe could 
be found working on Brigade business or just 
shining his Marine "boonies" at night. A self- 
directing financial wizard whose love of eco- 
nomics is only surpassed by his Louisiana love- 
ly. As far as past graduation service: Joe has 
always been a grunt. 


^1 After receiving his free ticket out of South 
Dakota, Mike packed and left Aberdeen for 
The Naval Academy in '68. Smiley soon got in- 
voUed in such good deals as the Brigade Hop 
Committee, Squash, SCUBA club, and Concert 
Band which gave him an excuse to bag part of 
Plebe year. After becoming an upperclassman, 
Vlike could usually be seen with his pinmate on 
A^eekends, giving up his fillers at Tom's, a fa- 
/orite spot of the 8th Company. In his spare 
ime he still managed to make Sup's List and 
:et stars and wings. Planning a career in Navy 
ir once he gets out of Navy Line, Mike hopes 
become a Prop Jock, but whatever he does, 
e know he'll come out on top. 


Leaving the Ohio valley for a life of fun and 
pleasure at Navy, Greg made his first mark 
here with a sabre on the Plebe Fencing team. 
"Hemp" earned his second award, the Black N, 
while on an ECA in Hamburg on youngster 
cruise. Although his QPR never slid into the 
danger zone there were some tight semesters. 
Hemp did well in company sports and in his 
upperclass years was an asset to both the com- 
pany soccer team and the It. wgt. football 
team. With his witty humor and noted sarcasm 
Greg contributes to any gathering whether it 
be serious or relaxed. After graduation he 
plans on devoting his spare time to Navy Line. 


John came to Navy from Rochester, New 

ifork, with a strong will and a "never say die" 

jittitude. A week ofPlebe life quickly helped to 

itraighten out this outlook, however, and 

j'Topo" was soon ready to take his place with 

he Brigade. While here, John's Athletic and 

)ersonaT activities ranged from Plebe track 

ind Company football and soccer to Company 

iep. and "Studies in Inertia." Although John 

Iways had to struggle a little with academics, 

le seldom had many problems meeting the 

■hallenge. While at the Academy, John has 

lade many friends and should have every suc- 

ess in his Navy career. We wish John the best 

f luck in the years to come. 


Glenn, commonly addressed by all as 
"Johns," is a Navy junior. He calls Silver 
Spring, Md. his home. Glenn entered the Acad- 
emy with airplanes on his mind. He took up 
aero to see if they would really fly, and his 
mind is still up in the air, so to speak. Glenn 
kept busy on land and sea, as well, talking 
Rosemarie into marrying him and earning his 
yawl command. His other major distinctions 
are: most semester-hours of sleep for a man on 
Sup's List, and single-handed shower party 
champion with two victories in under 30 sec-

Stan is a farmer at heart and hails from cen- 
ter of agricultural activity, Clarion, Iowa. Stan 
is renowned for having remained several 
strides ahead of the Academic Department 
while at Navy. As a Physics Major, he was a 
steady patron of the Dean's List, a fact which 
earned him a chance for some independent re- 
search and a Trident project. Stan kept busy in 
the outside world as well. Youngster Cruise 
earned him the title "The Man With a Comb." 
Another, less dubious, distinction is having 
slept in his grease shoes. Professionally, Stan is 
oriented toward tVie Surface Navy, though his 
farmer instincts sometimes cause nim to enter- 
tain thoughts of the Corps. Wherever he goes, 
he is sure to be a success. 


"Pappy" joined the Navy as an enlisted man 
in '66 after graduating from George P. Butler 
High in Augusta, Ga. after about two years of 
service school, including ET"A" School and 
"NAPS" he came to the Academy. His major 
in Electrical Engineering made quite a chal- 
lenge of his academics. Although primarily in- 
terested in aviation upon graduation, his inter- 
est in the Navy (and the promise of extra 
weekends) prompted 4 year participation in 
the YP Squadron; in which he received com- 
manding officer, quals first semester. Second 
Class year. Pappy's loves are: His Dad, Brenda, 
whom he will marry June Week, the F-4 
Phantom, and Electrical Engineering. 


Terry, better known to all as Schwiegs, re- 
ported to Canoe U. from the beautiful tropical 
paradise of Fairfax, Minnesota. He wasted no 
time, and plunged headlong into a four year 
battle with the Weapons and Engineering De- 
partments. His academic difficulties can be ex- 
plained in part by Ail-American position on 
Navy's varsity rack team, and for an avowed 
preference for slinging the "bull" in pursuit of 
nis Foreign Affairs major rather than contem- 
plating the intracies of a slide rule. Schwiegs 
was an avid competitor on the intramural 
fields in company basketball, football, and 
Softball. He also was well known in off the 
field competition and a weekend seldom passed 
when he could not be found in the company of 
one of his first-string blondes and brunettes. A 
Navy Air aspirant since Plebe year, Terry 
should make an outstanding contribution to 
the fleet.

Chris has always held the ocean as his first 
love. Taking out time from surfing in his na- 
tive Southern California to enter the Naval 
Academy, he selected Oceanography as his 
major, and worked at it for four long years to 
achieve his dream of standing on the bridge of 
his own destroyer. Not a star man, he made 
Sup's List on occasion with a little sweat and 
luck. Enthusiasm was his trademark in compa- 
ny intramural competition in which he even 
starred on occasion. Quiet and reserved, Chris 
tried to show concern for those around him. He 
is looking forward to a productive and reward- 
ing career in the Navy. 


From a small town near the "Burg" in Penn- 
sylvania, "Al Joe" has always done things in a 
big way. Recruited for football, he started on 
the Plebe team, and was a three year letter- 
man for the ISO's. A Mechanical Engineering 
major, Al Joe would like to continue his studies 
after graduation, either through the immedi- 
ate masters program or graduate school. A 
member of the Sup's List every semester, and 
the Dean's List half of them, he is a sure bet to 
accomplish these desirable goals. For fun is ei- 
ther spending time with Diane, following some 
type of sport, or sucking up on some "suds" 
and pizza. 


"Popeye" came to USNA as an Air Force 
unior. Straight from Washmgton, D. C, he 
lad little problem in adjusting to the climate 
if Annapolis, and adopted that "gung-ho" 
ipirit which has seen so many of "those who 
lave gone before" through the Academy. Fas- 
:inated with the Engineering Department, 
Russ set his sights on Electrical Engineering. 
Soon meeting his match, he re-entered the Ac- 
idemic circle with the battle cry — "Physics is 
everything." From the vicious animal of the 
company fieldball team to the ivy league of 
he tennis court, he was a zealous athlete in in- 
ramurals. Not prone to spending Saturday 
:ights in the hall, he stayed away from the Ex- 
ecutive Department and could often be found 
yith Peg. Destroyers and Quantico attract his 
"ancy, but "Popeye" will remain undecided to 
he bitter end. 


"T.A.L.," as he is known to his close friends, 
is probably the only mid from Philadelphia 
witn a Memphis accent. Somewhat stunned by 
his selection to such a "hallowed institution" as 
USNA, he finally settled down into the four 
year routine leading to his first and only 
choice, aviation, after service selection became 
a thing of the past, he came to the realization 
that there were more important things than 
grades, etc., and set his sights on an N* or two 
for the soccer team. After he sews on his last 
star, and plays his last game, he will be flying 
"high" for the Navy down at Pensacola, ser- 
vice selection or not. When not flying there 
should be ample time to pursue his "other" in- 


Britt came to the shores of the Severn from 
he heart of the South. Atlanta, Ga. After 
;oing through some rather "foggy" nick- 
lames, everyone decided no nickname really 
it him and just called him Britt. Although ac- 
demics struck hard Plebe year, Britt man- 
ged to slash out the remainder of his stay at 
Javy. A YP "jock" at heart, he still became a 
lember in good standing on the fieldball 
earn. His good humor and easy going ways 
n\\ be remembered by all, and his friendly na- 
ure will undoubtedly be -an asset to Britt 
hroughout his career. 


A Marine brat, Andy calls hometown, USA. 
Preferring the Spartan life Andy put on the 
Navy blue and gold in June of '68. Locking 
horns with the Academic Department from the 
outset he emerged the victor after four tumul- 
tous years. A fierce competitor on the intramu- 
ral scene, he also enjoys scuba diving and the 
fairer sex during his lighter moments. The Ma- 
rine Corps can look forward to another officer 
in the best of the Wehrle tradition!

Shay, familiarly known as "S. D. Maggot," 
spring upon Navy from Fall River, Mass. as 
one of the only men to make all scholastic in 
two positions in football. He soon became a "do 
everything" mid by playing Plebe football, 
searching for an Army star in rugby since 
Youngster year, and maintaining a spot on the 
Dean's List, Sup's List, and striper list. With 
all these talents, it was not long before he 
dominated the company commander billet sec- 
ond class year. With a memory better than an 
IBM computer, S. D. put his talents to work on 
memorizing every statistic in the world, speci- 
alizing in sports and people. As a card shark 
the "Fall River Fat Man could invariably be 
seen pulling in the pot after a night with the 
boys during Youngster Cruise and Second 
Class year. Nobody else will hit the fleet quite 
like him when he goes surface line after grad- 
uation. We wish him the best of luck in the 
years ahead. 



The "seal-crawl king" came to USNA afte 
a lifetime of travel. Having gone to school i 
Morocco and Italy "Wee" had an air of inte 
lectuality about him which was immediate! 
dispersed under the tuteledge of the infamot 
J. L. Sheets, '72 (RET.). Bill has had no troubl 
with academics and has been active as manaj 
er of the varsity fencing squad. Bill's choice c

John Dillon came to the Academy from 
Fresno, California. He suffered through a typi- 
cal Plebe year losing one roommate in the 
process. At the beginning of Third Class year 
his true self began to show. His peculiar sense 
of humor "Moo, I'm a chocolate cow" zoo- 
minded the whole company. Being a natural- 
born know-it-all, John picked Operations Anal- 
ysis as his major, a study of how to know it all 
better and tell everybody at the same time. He 
figures this will get him to the top of the heap 
the fastest, and if he stays in long enough, it 
might. While working his way to the top, John 
wants to drive nuclear subs.

Bopping to the Naval Avademy from the 
"Big "Os ' (Omaha, Nebraska) Benson High 
Bunnies, likeable "RJ" found it fairly easy to 
adjust to the Navy life. As a Plebe, "Bergie's" 
neck was in many of our company's activities, 
but it was not until Youngster Year that he 
was turned on to the Annapolis social scene by 
his good friend Bud Weiser. At parties, Jeff 
would always throw up plenty of good materi- 
al which he and his friends would discuss over 
and over again. In his studies, "Arjeberg" al- 
ways seemed to do well, nailing down a spot on 
the Sup's List while also finding time for the 
Log Feature Staff and Antiphonal Choir. But 
as Second Class year began, RJ's thoughts 
turned from his books and toward the beauti- 
ful body and sensuous curves of his (Wow!) '71 
Corvette. Late at night you could always find 
him listening to his million-dollar stereo or 
watching Johnny Carson on the tube. Jeff, 
with his intelligence, outgoing personality, en- 
thusiasm, and receding hairline, will be a cred- 
it to any ship he serves upon. 


When the "Wow Man" came to USNA, from 
"Baldimur, Maryland," little did "Little L. J." 
know that he would be adding the fond memo- 
ries of the "El Cocdrillo" of Little Creek and 
"Tiffany's" of London, England to those of a 
Miss Sharon Lynch. Larry is best remembered 
during Plebe Summer by his impersonation of 
disc jockey Rockin' Robin. Plebe year, he ac- 
quired the nickname of a small red fruit and 
has not lost it yet. Youngster year introduced 
L. J. to the powers of Bali-Hai, and it was dur- 
ing his sophomore year that "Jimmy Olson's 
Daily Planet" first hit the presses. Larry's 
weekends with "Sharwun" made his academics 
bearable and thoughts of his silver '71 Firebird 
filled his Second Class year. Being Company 
and Plebe Indoctrination Rep kept "'Tele- 
Blair" up-to-date, and his humor, enthusiasm, 
and concern for his friends were very present. 
To capitalize on his Management Major, Larry 
plans on accepting a commission in Marine 
Corps Supply upon graduation and, of course, 
on resigning his bachelorhood. 


Walt came straight to the Naval Academy 
from the "Mo Town," Detroit, Michigan. He 
immediately began to establish himself as a 
brilliant athlete, lettering in 150 lb. football, 
indoor track, and outdoor track. However, on 
his way to the track Walt could be seen stop- 
ping on at the swimming pool for a little extra 
instruction. Walt's grades weren't the greatest 
and he always tried to visit the Academic 
Board at least once a year to make sure things 
were "OK" down there. From the first day of 
Plebe Summer until graduation Walt was duly 
labeled a truly dedicated midshipman. His nat- 
ural leadership ability, his easygoing manner, 
and his amiability will surely guarantee him 
success in the future. 


Rob Hardy, one of the "friendlier" members 
in the company, came to Annapolis from Co- 
lumbus, Mississippi. Coming from an Air Force 
family, Rob has the spirit to become a fine ca- 
reer naval officer in the surface Navy. Being 
one of the more eccentric members of the 9th 
Company, and having rather refined tastes in 
music and art, he could always be found visit- 
ing art galleries and museums in the Washing- 
ton area during his liberty hours. If Rob 
wasn't reading, then he was sure to be hanging 
up some "relevant" newspaper or magazine 
clipping in the company area for everyone's 
enlightenment. Rob has a- remarkable insight 
into people and good rational mind which will 
lelp him do well in anything he chooses. 


A product of that thriving metropolis of 
Martins Ferry, Ohio, "C. E." (son of Elmer) 
quickly established himself as the authority on 
all high school athletes to g^ow up in Ohio. 
This wasn't hard for him since he was out- 
standing in football, basketball and track at 
Martins Ferry High. Once situated on the love- 
ly banks of the Severn, C. E. proved that Plebe 
year and academics at USNA were not all that 
hard. He received the coveted golden book 
mark from Random House after successfully 
reading more novels than any other mid and 
the silver pad trophy for most time in the rack 
while still maintaining good grades and he was 
always willing to spend hours helping his class- 
mates in Engineering and pulling them 
through. An easygoing guy, he got along with 
everyone and proved himself to be one of the 
leaders of the company. It looks like the de- 
stroyers will get another good man and an out- 
standing officer as C. E. casts off for Navy

Ninth company's own friendly Jap came to 
USNA from, appropriately enough, Camp 
Zama, Japan. After being born in San Francis- 
co, Karl was moved to Japan where he lived all 
the way until his graduation from high school. 
This lead to some jjeculiarities such as Karl 
learning to drive for the first time during his 
first class year. After losing his Plebe year 
roommate to "Mad Mac," Karl made it 
through Plebe year with distinction. As a 
Physics Major, Karl has been fairly successful 
in academics, frequently getting himself on 
the Sup's List. His major goal through the 
years has been to keep out of the surface fleet 
and go subs. 


Hailing from River Forest, Illinois, "Mantis" 
set to work immediately trying to find the 
proper balance of sleep, wine, women and 
"goofing off." Athletically, Marty was a stal- 
wart in lightweight football and could be 
found sailing on the Severn with the dinghy 
sailing team and then the ocean racers. Marty, 
a Political Science major, was always around 
the company trying to get something changed 
or improved. Marty was one of the notorious 
sleepy hollow dwellers and could be seen doz- 
ing off now and then. Many will remember 
"magoo" for his easy going attitude and keen 
sense of humor. His career plans include a life- 
time membership in the greyhound fleet.

Dan dragged himself away from the sunny 
Mafioso community of Sacramento, Calif, to 
join us at the zoo. As an all-round athlete in 
nigh school, Dazzlin' Dan came here in high 
hopes of a brilliant career in football. But, as 
others have found out, this shall not be true. 
So, he went on to lead the company to a dynas- 
ty in intramural sports. As for studies, he hung 
on to make it to that day in June. Mainly 
known for his odd wit and speech impediment, 
the Nose provided many a smile for those dull 
days at USNA. The former heartbreaker got 
hooked by the time 2/c year rolled around by a 
beauty from his hometown. We have great 
confidence that Dan will be able to pull his 
head out and pursue a fine career in Navy 


Steve came to the Academy from a small 
town outside of Dallas, Texas but soon became 
accustomed to life away from the prairie. As 
the 9th company religious rep. Steve tried hard 
to reform many in the 9th Company but found 
it to no avail and soon became a "true" mid. 
Steve was always one step ahead of the Aca- 
demic Department and as such plans a career 
driving nuclear subs. During his spare time, 
Steve, the "Bible beater" could always be 
found building models fencing, or keeping up 
on his major in Operations Analysis. Steve has 
a steady mind and certainly will be a credit to 
the Naval Service. 


Rick came to Navy from sunny California 
[and settled down to work outsmarting the Ac- 
ademic Department, as evidence of the tutor- 
ing line each night showed. His motto was 
"work hard during the week and play hard on 
the weekend." He did both, learning his way 
[around D. C. quickly and, always one for the 
iner things in life, built the reputation of al- 
Iways finding the beautiful girls. Plebe year he 
was "railroad" and was famous for the gui- 
deon in the midstore tunnel trick. Youngster 
year turned the tide from Navy air for failing 
eyes. Second class year he was "turkey" and 
began climbing to the top as a Brigade boxer. 
First class year he pushed the coast button and 
ate, drank and slept at the wheel. He was a 
friend to all except his rack which he couldn't 
conquer. He admits that without his room- 
mates help he couldn't have made it, but when 
he doesn't have his head in the clouds soaring, 
his first love, he'll be driving a ship. The eter- 
nal bachelor, he has a great future ahead of 


Al came to the shores of the Severn from the 
thriving metropolis of Rexpatch, er . . . we 
mean Rexburg, Idaho. After Plebe and Young- 
ster years it seemed as if the "spud" was going 
to earn the distinction of being the greatest 
pariygoer of all time. However, come Second 
and First Class year Al spent the major of his 
time with a beautiful girl from Idaho. Al- 
though Al's grades didn t indicate it, he was 
way head of his class, having started Young- 
ster year academics during November of our 
Plebe year. Al was a friend to all and he was 
always willing to give E.I. to anyone at any 
time. A gentleman, a good drinker, and a gen- 
eral all-around nice guy, Navy Air should have 
an outstanding officer in the "bead" and we 
wish him the best of luck. 


Emerging from the industrial dynasty of 
Owaneco, Illinois, P. 0. left behind his schol- 
arly high school achievements to don the dixie 
cup and pajamas of the Naval Academy. After 
a Plebe summer spent huffing around Farra- 
gut Field with the rest of the "mighty niners," 
V. 0. proved to us all that he could take as 
much as they could hand out. When academics 
started he shined as bright as his stars. The ac- 
ademic drudgery never bogged P. 0. down and 
his top grades and Dean's List ranking sure 
proved it. To pass his spare time P. 0. found 
more enjoyment in working with the Stage 
Gang than working in his pad yet he still found 
Lime to bump heads with" the heavys on the 
:ompany football team. A true friend to those 
who knew him, P. 0. is leaning toward nuclear 
wwer but no matter what field he chooses, the 
^avy is acquiring a sharp officer. 


Impregnable to the trials of USNA "Rock" 
received an appropriate nickname to take 
home to Billings, Montana on leave. Electrical 
Engineering provided him with stars, while 
being rifle team captain, sailing and, "staying 
out of trouble" occupied most of his spare 
time. Rock was famous for never having re- 
ceived a fateful "Dear John," respected as our 
Youngster Company Commander, and remem- 
bered as a flawless perfectionist. An obvious 
failure in human wiring made it impossible for 
Rock to do anything wrong, though he tried so 
hard to be like the rest of his classmates. A 
friend to all Korean orphans. Rock could be 
seen collecting nickels and pennies for our 
"daughter" Youngster year. Rock plans to 
steam nuclear power subs after he makes his 
girl a Navy lady graduation.

On one of Bedford, Ohio's brighter days, Jim 
left home to join the Navy. After spending a 
year in regular NROTC at Miami of Ohio, 
'^'Sally" finished his ROTC Youngster Cruise 
just in time to report to USNA for the start of 
Plebe Summer. He spent the next four years 
slugging it out with an Aero Major and dream- 
ing of graduation. Jim spent two years on the 
crew team before retiring to company volley- 
ball and lightweight football. A walking ware- 
house of usually irrelevant information on air- 
planes, ships, military campaigns, and most 
anything else, Jim has rarely missed an oppor- 
tunity to say what's on his mind. He is a great 
believer in living comfortably and his room has 
always had all the modern electrical conven- 
iences that most mids only dream about. After 
his tour as a boat driver, Jim plans on Navy air 
with an eye on flying reconn. If he turns out to 
be half the pilot he claims he'll be one of the 
best, and knowing Jim, he'll probably make it. 



Robert G. "Bobo" Smith finally dropped an- 
chor at USNA after turning down offers at 
the University of Nevada, Notre Dame and the 
Los Angeles Dodgers. Externally, Bobo's mus- 
cular body spoke for his fine performance as 
star reliever for the Navy baseball team. In- 
ternally, his lungs and liver suffered the after 
effects of his wild weekend appearances as the 
"stone man." Never to take academics too fa- 
natically, he was to be relied upon to pull them 
out at finals much to the dismay of all. 
Displaying a great deal of moral fiber, Bob had 
a perfect Sunday mass attendance record 
while at the Academy. With his ability to mix 
hard work with even harder play. Bob should 
go far with his career, whether it be in or out 
of the Navy. 


Dave came to the Academy with the idea he 
was on a football scholarship and he never 
seemed to lose sight of this. From the first 
"Plebe-ho" until the day he threw his hat at 
graduation, Dave lived the easygoing, devil- 
may-care life of a hard core jock. He won this 
"N in varsity football Youngster year and 
added a star to it when lacrosse season rolled 
around. His achievements on the grid were ex- 
celled only by his academics where Dave made 
Dean's List, Sup's List and stars. Deemed 
striper material by his company officer, Dave 
never let anything bother him be it officers, 
stripers, or starry-eyed girls. Too nice to dump 
on any freshman, Dave's (juick smile and warm 
personality made him friends everywhere he 
went. You just couldn't dislike a big blue-€yed 
teddy bear that was programmed kill on the 
football field. True to the traditions of all 
sweat-jocks, Dave will pursue a commission as 
an NFO. The best of luck and smooth sailing to 
a true friend and a hell of a guy.

"Bull" Schmidt arrived at Mother "B" in the 
summer of '68 after a illustrious high school 
career at beautiful downtown York, Pa. An 
outstanding Plebe who impressed all who came 
in contact with him, Steve none-the-less man- 
aged to win the first of his many Black "N's" 
for his extracurricular activities in his Fresh- 
man year. Although nights usually found him 
on his "selling route," afternoons were busy 
with rubgy and, at one time, the 150 pound 
football team. Academics never posed any real 
problems for "Schmidity." Famous for his 
tales of woe with the fairer sex, Steve's good 
nature and humor were always part of any 
party. Surface Line will be receiving an ambi- 
tious, capable officer when Steve joins the 
fleet in 1972. 


Mark stumbled blindly into Plebe summer 
ick in 1968 from the quasi affluent town of 
airfield. Conn. He left behind his girl, his best 
elders glove, and his stock of printed under- 
ear and took up the life of a middy. Plebe 
immer saw Stends sweating with the best of 
lem — a trait he was famous for throughout 
s stay. He settled down quickly in the warm 
TOS of Mother B and set his academic stan- 
irds as high as the stars on his lapels. If any- 
)dy was sure to place studying over anything 
m could find Mark with his nose to the books, 
>unding out those "A's" in his Political 
;ience major. Stends went on to win friends 
ith his quick smile and horrendous laugh 
hile adding much to the company basketball 
am. With a beer in one hand and a dictionary 

the other, the fleet had best standby for a 

e officer. Civilian line his choice but Navy 
16 his obligation, Stends will be sure to excel 

anything he chooses. 


"Jocko," who calls home Cuyahoga Falls, 
Ohio (Chickawauga what?!?), entered the 
Academy from NAPS on June 26th and imme- 
diately established himself as the "Old Man" 
of the company. If you had a problem, you took 
it, to Jocko, if you needed advice, you went to 
Jocko. If you felt like getting your ego deflat- 
ed, well. Jocko was adept at that, too. Often 
compared to the "ideal Mid," Jocko was the 
ideal combination of Polish and athletics, with 
just enough brains thrown in to "make the 
grades." On the side horse, he was unexcelled, 
although you had to be quick to get to him 
after a meet if you wanted to congratulate 
him before he was swept off into a certain 
brunette's care for the weekend. Equally adept 
at either the sword manual or keeping bar, 
Jocko became a first rate leader over the years 
and even managed to "raise the rent" on a few 
of his lower class roommates. A true friend to 
many of us, and a respected "buddy" to the 
rest. Jocko will undoubtedly be number one at 
whatever he undertakes after graduation. 


Van tore himself away from California long 
enough to spend four years with us here at the 
Academy. And an enjoyable four years they 
were, too, for no one could ever accuse Van of 
being dull. A semi-expert in many fields, he es- 
tablished himself as a top photo^apher, an 
avid stereo enthusiast, a darmg skm diver, an 
outstanding basketball player, an unselfish 
lover (he liked to spread himself around), and 
a real champ on the blue tramp. When it came 
to the books, Van, a Math major did not like to 
strain himself. Usually spending about as 
much time helping others as he did studying 
himself. Van coasted into the kind of grades 
that the rest of us burned the midnight oil to 
get. With a quick smile and an open heart. Van 
will continue to add to his long list of friends 
as he wings his way to Pensacola.

"Meano Deano" came from nowhere and 
called Germany and Turkey home, among 
other fine spots. During his years fruitlessly 
spent in quest of the Navy issued Mark 1 mod 
9 impossible dream. Dean could usually be 
found pursuing his Foreign Affairs major at 
the typewriter keyboard, preparing one of the 
interminable list of research papers. After- 
noons were spent in trying to find some non- 
athletic facet of Navy existence. Having 
earned his varsity "N" at the Sunday after- 
noon hogfest. Dean had one of the longest list 
of addresses of anyone in the Brigade, also to 
little avail. However, this caused him no pain, 
for there would' always be someone new the 
next week. One of the elite ^oup of Maso- 
chists crazy enough to enjoy jumping out of 
aircraft, Dean finally earned his gold jump 
wings. With this attitude he will surely make a 
fine mean Marine if he can avoid the horrors 
and pitfalls of destroyer trundling. 


The ail-American from Rhode Island, put 
aside his athletic heroics for the vigors of 
Aerodynamic Engfineering. Kevin set the pace 
for his love life by losing his homecoming date 
to a moratorium, or was it his affinity to 
Dutch treat. Constantly searching for the most 
economical methooTas evidenced by his inabil- 
ity to get intoxicated on one can of beer after 
four years of futile research, he is now in 
search of the person to buy the necessary sec- 
ond. Always willing to do his best no matter 
what he tried, Kevin should do well as he 
strives to win his wings of gold. 


Perry entered the Academy shortly after his 
high school graduation from New Orleans. 
Being a Navy junior, he had a variety of cities 
from which to choose a hometown, but he 
claims he is an "honorary Cajun" from New 
Orleans. Perry proved he was athletically in- 
clined after boxing Plebe summer, playing 
Plebe baseball, and rowing on the varsity crew 
team, becoming an instant success with none 
of the three. He will best be remembered at 
the Academy for originating his roommate's 
popular nickname, "Pufroc," and for "catch- 
mg" Aardvark when he fell from Macdonough 
Hall. Putting in long hours of study to receive 
high grades. Perry strove for a high class 
standing for self-satisfaction and for the wid- 
est possible choice of a destroyer-type on ser- 
vice selection night. Perry looks to the ocean 
with zeal and ambition and anticipates a re- 
warding career in the Navy.

A lover of fast cars and fine women, but los- 
ing access to the cars, and having lost unac- 
countable girls, "Tugger" came to Annapolis 
from Knoxville, Tennessee, only to find that 
Academy Regs did not permit the wearing of 
moustaches. Recovering from the initial shock, 
Al quickly won over the hearts of the 10th 
Company upperclass by providing them with 
free donuts through the revolutionary "Cole- 
man Accounting System." Al's athletic prow- 
ess was legendary, due mainly to a marked 
aversion to water. Al's talents were spotted 
^arly Plebe year by the swimming sub squad 
:oach, and he was able to make the team and 
letter in all of his four years. With far too 
much talent to be held to this one athletic 
team, Al threw himself into the boxing ring, 
joing under the name of "Byrdie," he immor- 
talized the words "But I only lost by one 
x)int." Upon leaving Annapolis Al's room was 
nade into a memorial with a tape recording of 
;he words "Has anybody got a Spiffy?" nng- 
ng out at each one minute call. A future jet 
ockey, Al is sure to add "color" and life wher- 
!ver he goes. 


"Lennie" or "Coops" as he is known 
throughout the confines of terrible ten, has 
had a truly great four years at Sing Sing on 
the Severn. A starter on the Plebe football 
team until a shoulder injury put him out of the 
game for good. Lennie's presence in the com- 
pany sports will surely be missed. Never let- 
ting academics get the best of him, Len pio- 
neered his way through four years of sticky 
courses to a major in Physics which should 
have put him in good standing for the inter- 
view with Admiral Rickover and his obligated 
service with the marines. Perhaps the greatest 
fan of the late show and the Saturday morning 
nap, he saved his hard earned money for the 
weekend social scene where he cx)mbined the 
hardness of an athlete with a warm personali- 
ty, that would even put a helpless damsel at 


R. C. Pufrock came to the Academy from 
lomewhere in Hastings, Nebraska. After a 
lather rough Plebe year (his hair may never 
TOW back), he quickly squared away as a 
L '^oungster spending most of his time in the 
ack and finally being presented with the 
oveted "Black N" award. Much to his dis- 
ieasure, he became the company supplier of 
igarettes for three years. Pu, not letting his 
ointed ears stop him, was very active in com- 
any sports and especially made himself 
nown to the other teams as center on the 
eavyweight football team. Having a brilliant 
nd quick wit, he livened up many wardroom 
ights. His personality and great sense of 
umor made him well liked and a real pleasure 
3 associate with. Upon graduation, while 
earing the "Green," he should make one of 
le Marine Corps finest officers. 


This "red-neck-rebel" came to the loving 
arms of Mother B from the lone star state. 
After a brief stint on the academic board's 
most likely to succeed list, "Mude" quickly 
found himself on both the Sup's and Dean's 
Lists for his fine academic endeavors. John 
will be remembered by his friends as the man 
who invented "reckless abandon." Whether 
playing a sport, studying, or livening up an 
Army party, John always put his heart and 
soul into it. Sometimes he even put his foot 
into it as he was awarded two "Black N's." 
John as a guy who never has said "die" will 
surely make his name a well known one in the 


Hailing from the sand and sun of Scottsdale, 
rizona, Ted soon made his presence known at 
nnapolis' Alcatraz. "Aardvack" was clearly a 
•iple threat: booze, broads, and brains as he 
lade the varsity Ripple squad, became the 
AO of many a girl, and made the Dean's List, 
ever known as a "sweat" Ted soon became a 
ipernumerary on the grease ladder. With his 
)oks gathering dust and his rack wearing 
lin, Ted slugged his way to a Physics major, 
'ith the immortal wads "drive for five" and 
leaven in 77" imbedded in his mind, Ted is 
re to leave his mark on many a DD. Upon 
aduation as each one goes his separate way 
;d will always be remembered as a guy with 
freat sense of humor, a fine personality, and 
a friend. 


Gary gave up the boredom of University of 
Colorado life to find bigger and better things 
at Navy. As a Plebe he quickly won many dear 
friends among the upperclass and gained a 
reputation for his knowledge of every tile in 
5-2. His prowess at gaining friends among the 
upperclass was surpassed only by his immedi- 
ate popularity in the academic department, 
where his talents in Math and Science were 
frequently discussed with the pillars of the 
Navy academic community. Having estab- 
lished his niche in Academy life, he set out to 
conquer his only real enemy — the pad mon- 
ster. A truce was finally reached after many 
hours of torture on the rack. Gary's optimism 
and gouge should keep him in good stead in 
whatever branch of Naval service that is cho- 
sen for him.

Although not a Trident Scholar or even a 
varsity athlete, Gregg still tried to epitomize 
what he considered the ideal mid, and was 
aptly named "fiker." Gregg challenges every- 
one he encounters with his dry, bubble gum 
wit, while being able to dispel even the most 
obvious of solutions for an entire evening. 
Piker not — only learned how to fall with a 
parachute, but also for blind dates at June 
Week. These traumatic experiences seemed to 
carry over to his "crashing" at Pensacola. 
Gregg seems perfectly suited to a life of driv- 
ing either his F-4 or his orange Corvette. 


Phil left the hills of northern Pennsylvania 
not knowing what to expect. Consequently, he 
was not disappointed but emerged from Plebe 
year, in spite of a certain Corps type firstie, 
with hope that USNA did not spell NAVY. 
Not until 2/c Summer did he finally find the 
Navy his Dad had told him about. Having re- 
solved then to graduate and fly, "Jet" concen- 
trated on spending weekends with his girl, 
enjoying life, and staying SAT. Academics in 
the Aero Department certainly had some ups 
and downs because of this. Rounding out his 
professional experience on Plebe detail and the 
oldest destroyer in the Med increased his de- 
termination to get in the air any way possible. 
Jet looks forward to graduation and the imme- 
diate marriage pro-am with a bonus. His flair 
for the unconventional will undoubtedly af- 
ford his future a host of exploitable and pre- 
carious situations. 


"Bags" and "The Red Headed Wonder" are 
just a few of the many names that Rick's 
friends have affectionately bestowed on him. 
One of the best linebackers that the Navy de- 
fense has ever had. Bags has consistently 
showed his football prowess on the field, and 
his amazing wit in ol Mother B. None of us 
will ever forget his "shun him," "Hey Son," 
"Shock 'em" or multitude of other "bagisms," 
including hopping on a racket or riding a Ca- 
price. Rick overcame the Academy's academics 
with the same ease he overtakes all the women 
he meets. His grade point average is only ex- 
ceeded by the number of engagements he has 
caused to be broken by his one time OAO. 
Whether Rick drives boats, flies planes or 
coaches a winning football team in nis home- 
town of Edgewood, Maryland, we know he will 
be a huge success due to his persistence, per- 
sonal pride and magnetic personality that set 
Rick apart from the average guy.

In his ever-present quest for stars, "Scoot" 
was always acutely aware of his grades prog- 
ress — or lack thereof. So conscious was he of 
his cum, that he occasionally even had night- 
mares about it as he slept around the clock. 
"Tse-Tse," as his was know, approached nu- 
merous extracurricular activities with a zeal 
iapproached only by his enthusiasm upon re- 
::eiving one of his numerous chow packages. 
Hailing from Elmira (?), N. Y., Scott found it 
relatively easy to adjust to the ways and 
means of Canoe U. through an innate mclina- 
Lion towards incessant complaining about any- 
thing and everything. The complaining still 
iruns rampant, and well it should because Scott 
aspires to a Marine Corps billet — something 
!>vorth complaining about. Should he demon- 
litrate the same dedication for the Corps and 
16 did for his sleep here, he will undoubtedly 
jje an unquestioned success and a real asset to 
'he Corps. 



John Peck — affectionately known as John, 
)rought his Florida-Arabian tan to Annapolis 
n 1968, and has succeeded in leaving quite an 
mpression on many places — including the 
eat in the Commandant's Office. John proba- 
)ly holds the unique distinction of being run 
ly a firstie before supper and helping him with 

15 homework after. John's logical mind and 
bility to discipline himself have enabled him 
turn a twenty-six hour semester into a bet- 
er QPR than most could with fifteen hours, 
'his ability is sure to help him out in the fleet 
- or air — or subs — or Corps — or whatever

Once upon a time from the kingdom of "Po" 
ime Whitton Mark Potampa. Some day he 
jled over his homeland but no one knew for 
jre. Spending a third of his time on the stra- 
im in the dark, a third on the plain slaying 
indmills ifl the twilight, and a third in an 
'ory tower facing his Spokane sunshine, he 
)uld always be found in preparation for the 
>ne journey to Washington. Tied to a certain 
idnead, his homelife is secured. Preferring 
lin to sun, wind to calm, and clouds to clear 
ly, the spray of the ocean offers a satisfying 
lase in his life. 


Whether conquering hoards of pumpkins 
with a loaned dress sword, pushing for Pop 
Music Concerts (John Hartford?), or demon- 
strating his vigorous pad workouts during 
track season, Nel could be counted on to go 
double or nothing on anything, including one 
of his skillfully rendered haircuts. His Young- 
ster summer of mad love ended with a physical 
deformation and a "Dear John." The skillful 
Navy surgeons, however, came to Nel's aid by 
easing the pressures that developed. Relieving 
a departed classmate as duty sucker at the 
card table, he still averaged a good two hours 
of study per semester. Popular with his friends 
or their girls, he will always have a big ball 
wherever he goes. 


Credit must be given to the honorable Anch- 
er Nelsen who initially nominated me for this 
Academy. I have enjoyed four years of chal- 
lenging experiences. 'The curricular activities 
appear, in retrospect, fruitful, but they were 
not as stimulating as the ECA's I participated 
in: YP's, yawl sailing, Protestant Chapel and 
Antiphonal Choirs, all with fine trips. The 
summer cruise/training programs will long be 
remembered for their professional value and 
for the exciting people I met in Seattle, New- 
port, Copenhagen, and England. Knowledge- 
able and loving friends were found at St. 
John's College and St. Paul's Lutheran Church. 
As I head out to a fleet destroyer, I ho'd the 
guiding hand of Jesus, who has lovingly lead 
me thus far and will continue to uphold me 
and bring others unto him, that their joy may 
be complete. (John 3:36). 


"Scheymus" came to the Academy exhib- 
iting qualities exclusive to all PK's. Under a 
heavy barrage by both friends and finales, 
Steve finally succumbed to the All-American 
boy way of life. Although a consistent member 
of the Dean's List and a hardworking member 
of the beaters and blowers (Drum and Bugle 
Corps), Steve found time on the weekends for 
bottle of Ripple and — a favorite drag. Look- 
ing forward to a new future wedding and duty 
on submarines, the words "take her down" will 
be of special significance to the "Minnesota 
marauder." Steve's friendship is valued highly 
by all who knew him at the Academy.

Mommy's boy came from Wyoming, Ohio 
with great athletic ability and a desire to excel 
at USNA. However, after finding that excel- 
lence consisted of shining shoes and compro- 
mising ideals to suit those of seniors, his excel- 
lence turned to athletics, fishing, and de- 
stroying his Momma's boy image. Mitch was 
always having a good time, whether from the 
depths of below the sink at Howard Johnson's 
or to the upper floors of the castle. One of the 
most talented athletes in the Brigade, Schick 
managed to acquire letters in three sports 
while still ready to hear problems, share a 
beer, or spend a weekend with Barb. Mark will 
always be happy and successful in all of his fu- 
ture endeavors. 


Dispatched from Loyalsock, Pa., Annapolis 
was gifted with "Magpie." Beginning his naval 
career as a truly great wrestler and academic 
performer, his efforts were halted by an un- 
timely fractured tibia. After 5 months in the 
catacombs of the hospital, Brad was forced to 
say farewell to both the wrestling mat and the 
Class of 71. Turned back to the Class of '72, he 
made the adjustment quickly and happily. His 
mind was constantly occupied with two 
thoughts: visions of one Olds after another, 
and a beautiful little blonde from his home- 
town (in alphabetical order, Michele). His 
greatest goal in life is to drive in one of the 
Nationals. No matter what the future holds 
for Magpie, he'll surely get the checkered flag. 


Escaping from the wild times, beautiful 
Southern belles and perhaps the long arm of 
someone's father, the one-eyed wino, or 
Charleston Charlie, Joe Viz sought the more 
serene atmosphere of "Mother B." Although 
turning heavy, Viz never lost the Boy Scout 
image of being prepared as evidenced by his 
sleeping in full ready for inspection uniform 
with the soft caress of an pillow around his 
computerized mind. Using his slow Southern 
accent to its full advantage, Joe dauntlessly 
conquered the trials and tribulations of Plebe 
year. The Big Blue picked Joe up from the 
Huntsville High Crimson Panthers where at 
Navy he proved a credit to the image of Paul 
"Bear" Bryant's small but quick athletes. 
Striving to do his part to live up to Navy's 
total man man concept, Viz was torn between 
his idols the Banana Splits and Muhammud 
Ali. However, he was able to display a certain 
amount of consistency as evidenced by his Joey 
Brown smile triggered on by the chill of a alu- 
minum |)op-top. Visiting Viz a few years hence 
undoubtedly we will find him the life of the 
party whether at sea or on shore.

Hailing from Babylon, New York, which is 
the home of Captain Kangaroo, Tom came to 
the Academy via NAPS. Always one to tackle 
a problem, "The Firebrand" overcame a seri- 
ous shoulder injury Plebe year to capture the 
118 lb. Eastern wrestling championship as a 
sophomore, and if his calorie counting is up to 
par, the national 118 lb. champion will be Tom. 
"Harpo" managed to get by Physics and wires 
in time to build up a more than respectable 
QPR. Tom is a man who knows where he is 
going and stands behind what he feels, these 
qualities making him a three striper. He plans 
a June wedding following graduation from the 
"uncollege," and will see Admiral Rickover 
about a career in subs, or "leave the driving to 
us" on the greyhounds of the seas. Tom started 
out with "hope" and in the future will employ 
everything he has learned to its best 


A Navy junior. Bill has many homes, but his 
heart remains in Arlington, Virginia with good 
'ol Washington-Lee High School. Since he was 
a small bathtub ship driver, Shep has always 
wanted to attend USNA. His dream came 
true, and he traded his blue blazer and gold tie 
for a set of Navy white works. With his Navy 
background, Bill breezed through Plebe sum- 
mer only to encounter rough sailing on the sea 
of academics. But with foul weather gear in 
one hand and a crew oar in the other. Bill over- 
came the stormy weather on 4-1 to sail into the 
calm of Analytical Management. A perfection- 
ist by nature. Bill will be remembered by his 
all inspiring quote, "Well, my Dad said . . ." 
When not in a crew shell. Bill's thoughts turn 
to beautiful girls, especially redhead(s). Dur- 
ing his spare time, when he's not in Hubbard 
Hall, Bill can be found in the clothing depart- 
ment of the Mid Store, under the warm cover 
of his Naval Academy blanket while his Sansui 
five million plays Rod McKuen. "Kerplunk" is 
well on his way to the salt spray of Navy Line 
and following in the family tradition oi com- 
rtiand at sea. 


"Fweddy" entered our hallowed halls from 
the great state of Florida. He spent a year at 
NAPS gouging himself for his outstanding 
registrar's list academic performance. Fred's 
fine ways with women and his devotion to 
studies didn't leave him much spare time but 
he could always be found in the wardroom late 
on the weekends gasping over a Sir Graves 
Ghastly adventure. Fred will always be re- 
membered at Navy as the man who invented 
the F-F-D grading system. "Dense Spence" as 
Fred was aptly called will be a name that will 
ring through the halls of Michelson, Chauvenet 
Maury, and Melville for many years to come. A 
guy with an honest outlook, a great sense of 
humor, and a fine personality, Fred is a guy 
who is sure to be a hit anywhere he may drift. 


Coming from Lafayette, La., Kirk set out 
with Bible in hand, but after a few years of 
Navy "victory" parties, good women and loose 
booze Kirk's name changed from Sugar Bear 
to Bear, to Dirty Pierre (D. P. for short). When 
not ^ving advice, working on some staff, or 
pounng over the books, one could find him 
across the street rapping with his Johnnie 
friends. Having learned the secret of studying 
(3.6) Youngster year, he promptly forgot it 2/c 
Year and had plenty of time to introduce the 
music (?) of Frank Zappa to many of his un- 
learned classmates. As far as sports went, he 
took an early fancy to Shields sailing and re- 
mained quite loyal to it. With his auiet smile 
and overall concern for others. Kirk has earned 
the respect of all who know him, and will un- 
doubtedly be a great asset in straightening out 
the Nuc School upon graduation. 


Heralded as a prolific athlete with the Con- 
estoga pioneers, Ivan sought new frontiers at 
Milford High School where sweet Julie was a 
senior ... or was she a junior? This did not 
hinder his athletic or military career at USNA 
where he was a standout in both the Brigade. 
Dubbed "Ivan the terrible," Chuck displayed 
his aggressive efforts in the professional wres- 
tling circuit on 5-2. This activity coupled with 
football caused "Voganski" to spend much 
time in Misery Hall where numerous rolls of 
tape found their way to Chuck's extremities. 
His good naturedness and keen mind which 
was kept in "ready standby" with plenty of 
rest will pilot him to a promising future. 


A product of Chicago's Bloom High School, 
"Willie" came to USNA and immediately 
gained recognition — as the Plebe football 
"poolie of the year." After a knee injury in 
Spring football his Plebe year, Dave became 
sub squad and excused squad member, and a 
hospital "super." He consistently managed 
very respectable grades with that 3.0 usually 
just barely attained, despite a solid 4.0 in "Z- 
power." As Ring and Crest rep. Dave's artistic 
talents were put to good use, and he spent 
countless hours helping us to get our "ring of 
valor." Outdoing most Plebes at the mail desk, 
Dave's weekly list included letters to and from 
everybody but "The Great One (Bugkis, of 
course) unless of course he was saving a 6 cent 
stamp and calling long distance. Dave looks 
forward to wherever his knee can take him.

After spending a year at the University of 
ARD LAND" came to Annapolis with fond 
memories of home. Studying hard and trying 
to improve USNA were high on the list of 
"Webbie's" priorities. (The stars and stripes on 
his uniform spoke for themselves). Although 
short in stature, a towering 5'6", Lan was tall 
on ability and interest — attributes which will 
further his naval career. A scuba diver, he now 
thinks twice before accepting dinner dates 
with Barracuda . . . (remember 2/c sum- 
mer???) On weekends you could usually find 
him with a guitar, finger picking with Paul 
Simon . . . dreaming of faraway places and 
faraway friends. Like most of us, "Bentline" 
had several blind' dates while at Navy. Sooner 
or later, though, one expects something be- 
sides a "brick party" following the week- 
end . . . not so with Lanny — more often than 
not he brought home the bacon, (Oink, Oink!!). 
A warm friend, he will be remembered by all 
as a terrific listener — the destroyer Navy can 
look forward to an amiable, devoted and ambi- 
tious JO in Lanny. 


With a father who made the Air Force a ca- 
reer and a brother presently attending the Air 
Force Academy, Chris is hardly one the fans 
would have picked to enter Annapolis. Yet he 
has held his own and is proof that the flyboys 
and swabbies definitely have something in 
common. A bit stubborn in his way, Chris 
never did realize that if "Uncle Sammy" had 
wanted him to be married he would have is- 
sued a wife Plebe Summer — (this kid spent 
four years hunting for Miss America). His 
problems with girls, however, amused many of 
us. (Love that hook, eh, Chris). After Plebe 
year it looked like Chrissy was a strong con- 
tender for anchorman but he blew his chances 
and disappointed us all by pulling a few grades 
out of his . . . hat. It can be said about Chris — 
that when he is angry, he is fuming — a tem- 
per like his is uncommon. But when he is 
nappy, the world knows it. He will be remem- 
bered by us all as a true compatriot. His bond 
of friendship is stronger than most — this, in 
itself, puts him above many others that have 
gone before us. Best of luck and smooth sailing 
\n the years ahead. 


Born in Chicago and subjected to the diffi- 
cult life of an Air Force junior, John spent a 
lot of his time traveling before finally coming 
to rest in the ever loving arms of "Mother B. 
John had already attended the University of 
Texas for one year, and experienced few prob- 
lems in surmounting the rigors of Plebe year. 
He chose one of the most difficult majors — 
Aero-Space Engineering, and though he com- 
plains about late hours and endless exams, his 
name has somehow appeared on both the Sup's 
and the Dean's Lists. John was very quiet 
when he first arrived, swearing that he had 
played around enough, but has since built 
quite a reputation in D. C. In order to maintain 
strength for the weekends, John is frequently 
seen working on his major in the Field House. 
Expecting a position with the nukes upon 
graduation, his coolness under fire and round- 
ed personality, he is certain to achieve any

Butts stumbled into USNA from Bullis Prep 
and promptly became oblivious to it all. His 
quick rhetoric and booming snicker earned him 
a place with the happy wop in the USNA pep 
club. Jim brought with him a bottle of scotch 
and a curling iron, both of which he made good 
use of in the ensuing four years. Butts, always 
ready to be road guard, proved his ability but 
lack of interest with the football, lax stick and 
dutch. That and his "mutton chops" made him 
one of the forerunners on "the greatest of all 
time" striper list. Jim has the ability to make 
anyone feel at home and unhurried. Hjs natu- 
ral coolness under fire, bottle of vodka, and 
blonde make him a must at every party. A 
trait which could, on certain crucial days, 
^use the only beads, anyone ever saw, to form 
>n Buttster's forehead. Graduation will see 
Jim smile as he heads on down on the Severn 
to the sea, and his waiting blonde. 



Rog, a native of Annapolis, whose father 
and brother graduated from the Academy (he 
should've known better) had little trouble 
adapting to life at USNA. Academics were no 
big obstacle for Rog, and with Youngster Year 
he made both Sup's List and Dean's List. Dur- 
ing his first two years Rog made the Plebe and 
JV soccer teams, but later turned his atten- 
tions to company sports. Always popular with 
the girls, Rog had very little trouble getting 
dates, and on occasion, had trouble with too 
many. Rog is one of the few "true blue" (Navy 
blue, that is) people at the Academy, intending 
to make surface line his career. We all respect 
Rog for his dedication, sense of values, and 
2;ood judgment and look forward to seeing him 
in the fleet. 


A dirtball rolled into USNA from Pa. Mike 
brought with him two gimp knees and a smile. 
Quicklv singled out as one of the chosen few, 
Mike developed a unique relationship with the 
world. Mike can always be counted on for an 
outstanding performance at happy hours, ring 
dips, or just a plain ordinary Annapolis Ter- 
race Party. The "grode hog," has earned his 
reputation and fond memories without great 
effort. Mike has that knack for mixing with 
people and getting out of it with only a few 
knife wounds in the deal. Study hour finds 
Mike with a pair of clippers, in front of a TV or 
just making the rounds with jokes and stories 
for all. Because of this, and plain ole Navy 
courses, Mike will probably drag the anchor up 
to graduation '72. Either way Mike's quick ver- 
bage, enthusiasm, songs and dances, will carry 
him far. Graduation will find Mike marching 
off to the men in green with a smile on his face 
and a bottle in his pocket. Good luck, Mike, and 
remember to duck. 


Joseph Paul Eisenhuth turned down a free 
ride to Penn State, where he lives, to wander 
the halls of Mother "B." A hard man to catch 
out of the rack, Paul definitely earned the 
honor of being the sleepy "P" of Mother "B." 
Sleep never seemed to bother the computer be- 
tween his ears though as Paul frequented the 
Sup's and Dean's Lists. Paul's main asset 
earned him the name of the Pwakin. Paul's 
athletic interests lay mainly in football, scuba 
diving, and the Ace Company fieldball team of 
which he was a four year veteran. Thanks to 
Paul's tutoring many of the academic refugees 
of the company managed. Paul's personality 
and eagerness to help others have earned him 
the friendship and respect of everyone who 
knows him. He will definitely be a most wel- 
come asset in the nuclear power prog^ram. 


Beloved Texas lost a good one when Steve 
arrived at the Academy with all of us on that 
fateful day of 26 June 68. Youngster Cruise 
kvas a disaster to Steve in that he spent it at 
iear ole USNA Hospital with a broken ankle 
:hat he received in a rugged tennis match. Sec- 
ond Class Summer wasn't any better because 
le had to make up Youngster Cruise. During 
5foungster Year Steve was one of the few 
ucky ones to meet that special girl. He quickly 
sinned her and was engaged to her soon after. 
Steve had his ups and downs with the Ac Dept. 
)ut always seemed to keep one step ahead of 
hem. Navy Line is looking forward to receiv- 
ng Steve and Steve is looking forward to 
eeing him. 


Out of the cold came those famous words — 
"Hush, you Muskies," as Krats battled an 
Alaskan blizzard in his sled pulled by Niki, his 
faithful huskie to win the dog sled champion- 
ship of the world! The prize — a grasp at a 
Youngster drag' stocking, a swing at the Com- 
pany Commander, and a long night in the 
shower. No, Dave will never live down his first 
party at USNA, Notre Dame of Plebe year. 
Dave came to the Naval Academy from San 
Antonio, Texas by way of Anchorage, Alaska, 
but he now takes a more direct route home. 
After a close call with the books second semes- 
ter Plebe year, Krats applied himself to his 
studies and has since maintained respectable 
grades. The company artist, Krats drew the 
23rd Co. mug design, and maintained a collec- 
tion of drawings of the fairer sex that Pedro 
Vargas would envy. He is anxiously looking 
forward to a promising career in the Marine 
Corps. With a scuba tank on his back, a spear 
gun in one hand, and a bottle in the other, he is 
off in "hot" pursuit of a willing mermaid.

Greg arrived on the scene one June day, 
with a grunt cap and a broken nose. His vast 
sports Knowledge and array of trivia soon 
gained him fame. Lambs knows every TV 
show and sponsor ever aired and probably the 
names of every sportsman who ever lived. 
Greg's study habits seemed more orientated 
toward TV, baseball and war games. Always 
doing something different, Greg stands out 
from the crowd. His choice of food mixtures 
and perpetual cold never ceases to amaze us 
all. Lambs has made quite a few contributions 
to Navy intramural teams both in batt wres- 
tling and heavyweight football. Always a man 
to b^ reckoned with in the pad, Greg earned his 
letter in rack time early nere at USNA. His 
unique style of slumber, similar to an old, fat, 
French street walker, has endeared him to all. 
Greg has the military knowledge, and intelli- 
gence to be a good grunt and learner of month. 
Graduation will find Greg happily in his Ma- 
rine greens heading for Quantico and the good 


Ellis, from Brooklyn, New York, came to the 
Academy directly from high school. He sur- 
vived both the great white fathers insatiable 
appetite for anything white, and Momma Lo 
Guidice's work, sweat, and desire program. 
Youngster year found him with three stripes 
and the position of watch coordinator. He 
quickly dumped the three stripes, but held on 
to that watch coordinators job with both 
hands. The only time Ellis has ever lost a 
drinking contest was one infamous Saturday 
evening in D. C. when he came up against the 
Ernst and Julio Brothers. His nicknames in- 
clude "Fish," "Horny Toad," and a few other 
"unprintables" which were a result of that 
Plebe year June Week fiasco at the Annapolis 
Terrace Motel. In spite of all his carousing, 
Ellis managed to maintan Sup's and Dean s 
List grades while completing a major in Aero- 
space Engineering. 


Crazy Horse Norris rode into USNA from 
Tucson, Arizona. Teddy's never ending smile 
and domed forehead made him an immediate 
hit with all concerned. Ted brought with him a 
pair of fighting toes and an ability to gather 
Dunches of strawberries and cherries on week- 
ends. Both of which talents have enlivened 
many a bull session at the Vic Tanny's on 5-L 
Teddfy chose Systems Engineering as his easy 
bag thru USNA, and between brief skirmishes 
with the slide rule he managed to become an 
expert at juggling squash balls and courses. 
Crazy Horse further showed his versatility 
with his amazing ability to hold his liquor. A 
great man at any party, when he isn't hunting 
pumas in the crevasses or just monkeying 
around, Teddy can always be counted on for 
fun. Ted's one of the most likeable guys 
around and after he survived 100th Night, one 
of the happiest. He never lets it get to him and 
manages to smile no matter how big that guy 
in green may be. Graduation will find Ted 
rearing off on his cycle to the good life flying 
Navy Tine and the Navy gets itself one (cen- 
sored) of a fine man.

Mike, having traveled quite a bit during his 
young life as an Army brat, has finally claimed 
Alexandria, Vir^nia as his hometown. "Max" 
took Plebe year m the right frame of mind, set 
his goals, and has begun to accomplish them. 
The only demerits Max ever acquired at 
USNA had to do with going to Main Office one 
morning Plebe year without a tie on. Max en- 
tered the cherished 4.0 Club the first semester 
3f Youngster year. From there his grades 
iropped a little (what kind of encore can you 
io for a 4.0?) but Mike was forever present on 
the Sup's List and Dean's List. Being an Op- 
erations Analysis major, Mike was always 
finding the best way to do things. Mike's intra- 
mural time was spent playing company volley- 
ball, fieldball, and softball. Long weekends, 
PA courses, toothpicks (where he picked up the 
nickname "Woodchuck" Plebe year), and 
ifoungster afternoons are among Mike's thing 
vhile reveille and bull courses were among his 
najor dislikes. Girls were seldom a problem for 
Hax; he was always seen escorting some 
'sweet young thing. ' Max is a good leader, 
'air, considerate to all, and a friend to all. A 
rreat future lies ahead for Mike in Surface 
Jne — and with his potential, there's no stop- 
jing him. 


After abandoning his hopes for a career as a 
rock musician. Bill came to the Academy 
straight out of high school. A Navy junior, his 
home is "everywhere" in general, nowhere in 
particular. His nickname, "The Bead" which he 
nasn't been able to get rid of, is the result of a 
rather exciting Plebe year June Week car ride. 
Providing he doesn't run away and join the cir- 
cus before June of 1972, you'll be seeing him in 
the nuclear Navy. 



Murph came to the Naval Academy a posses- 
lor of ni^h ideals and low morals in hot pursuit 
)f a Political Science major and hopes of be- 
»ming a lawyer, a senator and Mr. President. 
During his four years in the bowels of "Mother 
'B," his ideals changed only slightly and his 
norals not at all! He met every obstacle in 
itride, including the power plant smoke stack 
)efore Army, Plebe year. He'll never stop lis- 
€ning for that brush to hit the deck! Known 
nore for his fencing ability than his six zer- 
•xed (no less) June Week invitations, Murph 
vas a friend to all who knew him. The master 
if the "cheap shot," Murph never failed to let 
lis presence be known, whether in the hall, or 
m the strip, or at weekend football games on 
he elipse. A "ten center diamond Jim Brady," 
he "wizard" sat through many a foreboding 
ession of palm and tarot readings, wrapped in 
. sheet, and on his rack — unmade for 5 
[lonths. A tight Plebe, but a loose upperclass- 
[lan, Murph's unbelievable Irish luck saw him 
ut of manv a pap, but couldn't ouite pull him 
ut of a "Plebe indoctrination violation" of the 
Tavest proportions. A "Southern gentleman" 
nd a "Peter Pan" at heart, Lew leaves USNA 
lEVER to grow up, though a certain "Swede" 
i determined to straighten him out. 


Pasty came to USNA with a ring thru his 
pose and a baseball game under his arm. The 
Vop, as he is always known, hailed from Hay- 
vard, California and promptly became the 
1th Co. duty greaser. Tom's interests earned 
im early fame Plebe year. His famous at- 
empt to burn down Bancroft earned him a 
Black N" and admiring recognition. Pyroino 
eing one of 11th Go's grandfathers is a must 
t every party. Always happy, quick with a 
nife and good at rolling cars, the Wop has 
lanaged to keep his room a constant pep rally 
3r USNA. Graduation will /ind the Wop mar- 
ed ASAP to his only love and then it is off to 
16 high adventure of Navy Line. 


Ed, along with "Slim", journeyed together 
from Kearney High School in San Diego, Cali- 
fornia prepared to conquer the world. One of 
Ed's highlights of Plebe summer was the ac- 
complishment of 72 pushups. The determina- 
tion and performance of "Noes" or "Pineap- 
ple" was noticed by his classmates as well as 
the upperclass and he inevitably acquired the 
reputation of being a hard worker. Batt tennis 
and company lightweight football dominated 
most of Ed's intramural time. "Noes" devoted 
much of his spare time to the BAG, where he 
was an active member. Will all of his extracur- 
ricular activities, Ed still was a frequent mem- 
ber of the Sup's List. One of the memorable 
events of Youngster year was "Wrong way 
Nocon" at the conn of one of the YP's. "Noes 
with his Math major, hopes to enter the nucle- 
ar submarine force following IGEP after grad- 
uation. An individual, true to himself as well 
as his friends, Ed is not excelled in dedication 
to the Naval service. 


Tom tripped and stumbled into Navy bring- 
ing with him a spear, a rosary and an amazing 
ability to keeping' smiling. Roj quickly demon- 
strated his ability at breaking things, and 
therefore earned a place on everyone's kill- 
sheet. But by far Tom is best with the guidon 
which have brought cheers for Tom's home- 
town fans of Washington, Pa. Tom grabbed 
such a hold on T-table Plebe year he has never 
let go. Also as "Roger ramjet," Tom is a good 
man at any party. His quick mind and viva- 
ciousness make him a legend. Tom's "Don't call 
you, I'll call me" will be engraved forever in 
Memorial Hall. He never gets angry and is "al- 
ways willing to help." His warmth of personal- 
ity, intelligence and loyalty will carry him far. 
Graduation will find Tom heading for the 
Navy with the brightest of futures.

"Salty" (oftentimes referred to as the 
CTandfather) was someone we could always 
look up to, literally or figuratively. After two 
years of college, Kurt left Becky and Barron, 
Wisconsin behind to see what the Navy had to 
offer. The Academic Department had it in for 
Kurt during Plebe year, but with the advent of 
Youngster Year, the stars were welded to his 
anchors for good. However, despite his trium- 
phant successes in the QPR department, Kurt 
nad a running battle with the PT Department 
— captain of the sub squad after Plebe Year, 
Kurt may be one of the only mids to earn his 
dolphins before^ graduation. Kurt has nuclear 
power school in his sights, but still retains the 
option of going either nuclear surface or subs. 
Whichever he chooses, Kurt will be a valuable 
addition to the fleet — the kind of officer any 
one of us would be proud to serve with. 


Steve's came into "Mother B" from Texas, 
bringing with him an innocent face and one 
used poncho. Mike quickly made a hit with the 
Class of '70 and spent many a morning trying 
to outrun Broadway Al. Steve's also made a 
name for himself with the ladies, after all who 
wouldn't fall for Cant, child molester peach 
fuzz and his piece of candy. Whenever Mike 
wasn't in the water, or doing pushups, he was 
practicing free enterprise, a must at every 
party, his wit, quick draw and collection of 
broken antennas always kept the management 
friendly. Lint driftwood, as he's fondly known, 
has proven himself as a loyal friend, a good 
man in a fight, and a master fieldball cheap- 
shot. Mike has earned the undying admiration 
of his classmates as one of the few to survice 
life with the grade hog and inspections by 
Dutch. No matter where he goes or who tells 
him to cut his burns, Mike's sunny personality 
and good times will find Mike with a cigar butt 
in his teeth, a poncho on his back, riding into 
the sunset on his way to being the first UDT 
admiral in the Navy. 


Hailing from the unknown metropolis of 
Waterloo, Wisconsin, Stevie Boy is proof that 
dairy farms and submarines go hand in hand? 
(Love those cows) Steve entered the Academy 
with stars in his eyes and a very "sporty" crew 
cut. The stars proceeded to plant themselves 
atop his anchors — a permanent fixture all 
four years. The crew cut? . . . Well, it died 2/c 
year when his hair started to fall out. A con- 
noisseur of finer liquors, Stevie-Pooh often en- 
joyed midnite swims in the Chesapeake. Being 
an admirer of Patton, Steve saw to it that each 
girl he dated received a brief history of the 3rd 
Army in World War IL Looking forward to his 
initial tour at sea, Steve hopes to enter subma- 
rines afterwards. It goes without saying that 
he's destined for bigger and better things 
(Nicki from the Nortn:?) Best of luck to the 
Ensign from Waterloo — give him a fast ship 
for this kid intends to sail in harm's way.

Tom, more commonly known as "R. T." or 
'Size," came to us from the one-horse-town of 
Clay, West Virginia. He saw college life as it 
(•eally was by attending Marshall University in 
Huntington, West Virginia. Being a Chemistry 
najor, R. T. spent much of his time in the 
aboratories of Chauvenet Hall mixing who- 
cnows-what. He was also an active member in 
;uch batt sports as handball, swimming, water 
)olo, and gymnastics and even blessed the 
lompany volleyball team for one set. Being 
/ice-President of the USNA chapter of the 
American Chemical Society, R. T. did much to 
itrengthen the chapter here. The submarine 
lervice is R. T.'s goal with nuclear power 
school coming a year after graduation. Tom 
lad no trouble with academics at the Academy 
)ecause "any problem could be solved by logic 
)nly." His favorite saying exemplifies his ac- 
ivities at USNA — "He who does not risk can- 
lot win." "Size" was a friend to all — except 
naybe the Plebes. Because of his dedication to 
,he task at hand and desire to succeed, Tom 
vill be a fine addition to the Fleet. 


Snydly arrived a day ahead of us at USNA, 
and has been trying to stay there ever since. 
Eddy, a little Napoleon took over the gang 
early and never really relinquished the lead! 
"Fast Eddie" or "Fat Eddie" — depending on 
the time of the year, brought with him a bottle 
of summer blonde, a sun lamp and has been 
waiting for summer ever since. Always one for 
the women, Ed has been known for his many 
exploits with the fairer sex. His philosophy can 
be summed up with his famour quote, ' Girls 
are just there for the loven." He is still trying 
to explain that one too. Ed was always there 
for every party, with either a deck of cards or 
a bottle 01 bourbon, and his winning smile and 
fast fists earned him a spot with the big boys 
each weekend touring the best in crabtown's 
dives. Fast Eddie's command presence, size 
and honesty at cards will see him far on his 
way to being the first of 11th company black 
shoe admiral. 


"T^" rolled in from Chicago, took a look at 
JSNA and decided to stay. Recruited for both 
'ootball and baseball, "Tommy Widetrack" 
gained an early lead in the race for a firstie by 
mjoying T-tables to the fullest. "Squatty 
Body" immediately became famous more for 
)eing a drinking man than a lover. After all 
vhat could be better than fishing in a lake a 
100 miles from nowhere, and 5 minutes from 
.he nearest tavern. Tom took Plebe year in 
;tride, and after a few pushups, shaved chests 
md bruises, Tets was at home in "Mother B." 
'^ever one to just drift along, Tom became one 
)f the founders of the 11th company bridge 
;lub and drinking society. Tom's accomplish- 
nents, though many and varied, include being 
m the all time stnke out list at Navy. With 
'Bulldogs" natural talents and sense of humor 
o help him along, graduation will find him 
leading out of USNA with a tackle box, a case 
>f Schlitz, and a broken bat to guide him on his 


Dave came to the Academy from a small 
town in Ohio, where he regretfully left his love 
and as a result lost her. But he didn't stop 
trying. Dave had a new O.A.O. for every year 
he spent at Canoe U. At USNA Dave quickly 
earned the nickname of "The Hood" from his 
classmates because of his very obvious interest 
in knives and guns. During study hour, you 
could usually find him in his room throwing his 
stiletto at the bulletin board or practicing his 
fast draw. He still found time for studying 
though and vowed that somehow he would 
major in Aerospace Eng., even at the cost of 
burning the midnight oil for 3 long years. 
Dave's plans are to fly Navy after he suffers 
through his 18 months of surface line. Wherev- 
er he goes, success will follow. 


D. R. undoubtedly will be remembered by all 
f us in one way or another. Plebe year, since 
e had an astounding similarity, at least in 
roportions, to a certain five-year man of the 
lass of '69, he was honored and revered by 
early every upperclassman in the company, 
le was so popular for a while that you could 
yen check with the BOOW to find out imme- 
iately where he was, on Saturdays, too. But 
s time went on Dave really began to show his 
•ue potential. While the rest of us thought 
bout leave, cars, and girls, Dave concentrated 
n stars, the 4.0, and reading his naval officer's 
uide. He nearly lost his battles with the Bull 
nd P.T. Departments, but showed his true 
alue in that "Double-E" major we all know 
nd love. Waiting until the last minute to de- 
de on a service selection, Dave will be either 
le most solid pilot the Navy ever had or one 
: the sneakiest intelligence officers. His calm 
lanner and studious endeavors are his out- 
anding trademarks, aside from being in the 
'&B for an eternity. Fortunately he spent 
ily 4 years here and hopefully will not spend 
uch longer than that in the fleet unless ships 
•ow on him very fast. We wish him good luck 


Paul came here from the sticks of Wyoming. 
A country boy, he soon became accustomed to 
the big city life, going out on libs whenever 
possible. Paul could usually be seen dragging 
one of several townies he always managed to 
have while still remaining faithful to his 
O.A.O. back in Cheyenne. Never one to sweat 
academics, Paul spent most of his study hour 
writing letters or sleeping. A jack in the truest 
sense of the word, he could often be seen lead- 
ing the sub squad around Farragut Field at 
0530. After a few run-ins with the Executive 
Department in his first 2 years, Paul quickly 
squared away. Paul intends to make surface 
line his career for the next 30 years.

A typical Californian, bronze, blonde, an( 
pants low slung, Stu came to USNA from thi 
flower capitol of the world, Lompoc, Califor 
nia. He quickly became famous Tlehe summei 
for his nightly renditions of Tiny Tim's Ti| 
Toe Through the Tulips. A part time surfei 
and high school tennis star, Stu found th< 
Academy's athletic program to his liking, am 
played Plebe tennis and squash. Barely miss 
mg the varsity squads 3/c year Stu found in 
tramural sports left him with some extra fret 
time. Putting this time to good use he movec 
onto the Sup's List, mastered the guitar, am 
developed an interest in photography durinf 
our 2/c and 3/c year. His favorite possession: 
were his books and a pink and purple afghan 
Although basically a quiet individual Stu wa 
a great friend of most, due to his easygoinj 
manner and friendly personalitv. A high greas 
er and certain striper Stu thinks Navy Line L 
might fine, for at least a couple of year 


South Carolina lost one of its leading lights 
the day Bill changed his address to Maryland. 
The Navy owned him physically, but his heart 
and soul were left at home. All one needed to 
do to get on Bill's better side was mention the 
merits of the "Fightin' Gamecocks." While at 
USNA Bill excelled in all areas of interest. He 
demonstrated to one and all that athletic 
prowess is not a function of size and weight. 
Bill has been the Bull Departments pride and 
joy. Despite the efforts of the Science, Math, 
and Engfineering Departments, Bill's name has 
been mentioned on Sup's List more than once. 
Renowned for his quick wit and nimble mind 
— Bill livens up any gathering of more than 
one and is phenomenal in his ability to reduce 
pseudo-intellects to cringing mounds of proto- 
plasm. Bill's social life has never been lacking 
and his "Vette" will only enhance his endeav- 
ors in this area. After graduation Bill will pro- 
vide the Navy with another outstanding

a "mid." Many problems awaited him in Ar;

Hailing from Woodbury, New Jersey; Jim 
came to the Naval Academy after finishing a 
rather successful high school career. His desire 
to excel and his many abilities earned the re- 
spect of all those who came into contact with 
him. Better known as "little kid" inside the 
confines of the company, Jim majored in Math 
and minored in extracurricular activities. He 
has offered his talents to many organizations 
including the Musical Club Show and the 
Masqueraders. When he hasn't promised his 
services to some group, you can find Jim in the 
rack or in the rack! Although he is not re- 
nowned for his affinity to use gates 1, 3, or 8; 
he has on occasion dabbled in the areas of love 
and heartbreak. Jim is also known for his ten- 
nis prowess, just ask his favorite wall! A seri- 
ous and earnest individual, Jim will be valu- 
able to any branch of the Navy he cooses to 
pursue. He is an exceptionally gifted leader; a 
friend to all, and always present with an 


After a visit of a year at NAPS, John re- 
med to the collegiate life here at Navy. The 
lid man" had his problems like the rest of us 
hile at Navy, but girls always seemed to be 
le root of most of his problems. But during 
c year the "old man" found a solution to his 
blems. While not much for varsity sports, 
hn was known to be an important link in the 
mpany basketball and soitball teams. Now 
lat there is no way but forward our "old 
an" of 12th Company has given hints he 
uld be found astride a destroyer soon after 
•aduation. John's presence among us has pro- 
ded us with encouragement when it was 
jeded and his personality helped make him a 
ell liked person . Now if John can just put to- 
ither the right amount of effort, he should be 
iporting to his new commanding officer 



Doug left the mountains of cool Colorado for 
adventure on the high seas after graduating 
from South High School in Denver. The hap- 
piest day in Doug's life was the day he found 
he had passed Calculus III. Doug somehow 
managed to tear himself away from his be- 
loved Mollier charts to play Plebe Lacrosse, 
box, and become a member of the famed 
"Boye Boys" of the Jubilee III as they swept 
the Corinthian Cup and sailed in the Newport- 
Bermuda Race in 1970. Perhaps Doug's chief 
claim to fame was being the only mid ever to 
be fried personally by the CNO. An avid For- 
eign Affairs major, Doug hopes to go into in- 
telligence after his two years commitment at 
sea, and eventually become the subject of a 
Dewar's white label ad. 


After spending an initial TAD at URI, Tom 
put aside his Engineering aspirations and de- 
cided to start over with "the frat" on the 
banks of the Severn — this time specializing in 
Oceanography. Academics were no probelm 
for Tom, frequently on the Sup's and Dean's 
Lists. E.I. became a well-established part of 
study hour. During the week you could always 
find Tom in the pad if he had a free period, but 
every time a weekend came around he van- 
ished completely. He became noted for the last 
minute dash to formation on Sunday night. 
Upon graduation Tom will join the "black 
shoes" of the fleet to ride the waves for 30 
years, or at least until he makes Admiral. The 
surface Navy will get a very professional offi- 
cer and a fine gentleman.

Bruce Engelhardt (Bidwell) came to our in- 
stitution of higher learning from particularly 
no place, with three left feet and a lifetime 
ambition of being an "ice cream man." Bruce 
established himself early in his career as being 
the worst marcher in the whole Brigade. His 
extracurricular activities and academic 
achievements went far beyond this, however, 
as he proved himself as a Plebe swimmer, 
scuba diver, and water polo player. Bruce has 
also shown us more than once that he can out- 
fox the academic department with his perma- 
nent membership on the Sup's List or Dean's 
List. As to his future plans, Bruce will join the 
nuclear-powered Navy with command of a 
submarine as his one day ambition. Bruce, a 
natural skeptic, with a philosophy that every- 
thing should be questioned, will undoubtedly 
find success waiting for him wherever he goes. 
"Good Luck Bids." 


Ray, known best to most of his classmates as 
"Barn," came to "Canoe U" from the metropo- 
lis of Mount Airy, North Carolina. After an ac- 
tive Plebe year, "Sugar Ray" launched himself 
into a maze of extracurricular activities. Dur- 
ing his non-rack time he could be found in the 
Masqueraders print shop, or posing as Pogo 
"spinning the discs" down at WRNV. A con- 
stant member of the Sup's List, Ray was fre- 
quently heard discussing the pros and cons of 
required Engineering courses for Bull majors 
at Navy. During 2/c Summer Ray found that 
Pensacola had much to offer, both in the air 
and on the ground. But he is keeping an open 
mind right up to service selection time. Pres- 
ently there are no "knot tying" ceremonies in 
sight for Ray. 


George came to the "belly-button" school 
from the seafaring town of Wichita in the wild 
flatlands of Kansas. After a busy Plebe year 
George settled down to the academic year life 
and became a steady member of the Sup's and 
Dean's Lists. He became quite good at his 
Mathematical endeavors, but he still had prob- 
lems spelling his name right on Bull papers. 
Later his strict rule of lights out at eleven 
earned him the nickname of "bags." After 
graduation our bachelor friend' will be heading 
for a year of IGEP before going off to Admiral 
Rickover's finishing school.

Lou, who hails from the Fort Lauderdale, 
Fla. area, came to the Naval Academy from 
the University of Florida system. Never an en- 
gineer, Lou accepted opportunities of a fifth 
year. A hard worker, enterprising and compet- 
itive Lou found his highest success in the Ton- 
sorial Arts. One of Navy's finest, the 12th 
Company will miss his skillful and sensitive 
hana Upon graduation, Lou will marry his 
fiancee of 3 years. Miss Kathy Flannery, of 
Los Angeles, California. Lou will begin his ca- 
reer as a regular line officer in the surface 




■ Jim came to Annapolis from sunny Lemoore, 
|p [California and a Navy family. A distinguished 
I ■ ligh school career included a foreign exchange 
nsit to the Netherlands, and was culminated 
3y his selection as valedictorian of his class, 
i rhough a confirmed bachelor Plebe year, Jim 
'lost' his pin midway through Youngster year 
ind made his first payment on the "Rock' 2/c 
summer. Jim always found time for his class- 
nates, though the rack, his studies in an 
Oceanography major, and a certain female 
vere his most frequent companions. His en- 
husiasm to excel was reflected in his frequent 
ippearance on the Sup's List, and in his com- 
)etitive spirit as a mainstay on the Brigade 
hampionship battalion tennis team. Jim's ex- 
raordinary sense of humor made him many 
asting friends, Maryland weather not in- 
luded. Matrimony and a trip to Pensacola will 
lark the beginnings of a certainly promising 
areer in Naval aviation. 


Like most mids, "Goldenrod" came to 
USNA. It was San Diego's loss and "standby 
Academy" as "The Rod" tripped in from the 
cold outside to spend his first year in the F.O. 
Room. With Youngster year came the fall of 
Goldenrod — Diana, and other great revela- 
tions as he saw no light in wires and switched 
to Systems Engineermg. All this was being ac- 
complished between trips to the sailing center 
where "The Rod" and Shields were synony- 
mous. Even though he beat most Plebes to the 
pad, academics gave him little grief and the 
Sup even saw his name on a list once. Al- 
though his only fault is keeping in Chapel for- 
mation what ship of the line could ask for more 
than one MODO Goldenrod. 


Hailing from Northern New York, the 
'pride ofGouverneur" came to the Annapolis 
.ampus after a "boring" year of wild parties, 
JAE fraternity life, sex and fun in the sun as 
I Navy ROTC at the University of Wisconsin, 
jarry breezed through Plebe year and 
merged with high grease, high grades, and 
nany good friends. A consistent "freebee" 
leeper, you'll never find him in the rack, dur- 
ng sports period. A natural at sports, 
Krakes" ran track as a Plebe and although he 
never played lacrosse until the middle of 
foungster Year, he quickly advanced to the 
arsity "lax" squad. An authority on good 
nusic, sports, and female behavior, Larry is 
nything but "typical." A lover of wild times, 
e distinguished himself by being held up at 
Tinpoint and wrecking a new car within 2 
ours, and for wiping out 3 cars, all during 2/c 
ummer (thank God his Dad is a Ford dealer), 
in ardent skiier, much of his free time is spent 
ither on the slopes or praying for snow, 
taying on the Sup's List, he still found time 
) be company honor rep. Ski Club rep, a mem- 
er of the Antiphonal Choir and the Scuba 
lub. An aviator at heart, Larry's looking for- 
'ard to the beaches of Pensacola and the 
Hngs of gold. 


Tom came to USNA from Newport, R. L 
with a naval background and connections. He 
managed to survive Plebe year while making 
countless trips to the Mid Store to see Mid 
Store Mary. Dandy Loins is a company leader 
when it comes to swimming, gusto grabbing. 
Black "N's" and "love" for the Corps. Upon 
g7"aduation the Tinman plans on going nuclear 
power (after hitting the big 0), providing Ad- 
miral Rickover doesn't find out about his lack 
of respect for USNA's $16.50 ceiling tiles. Mar- 
riage, babies, an MGB/GT, and a class ring 
with an inlaid penny lie ahead for Tom in the 
immediate future, and only Sue knows what 
after that!

A Navy junior, Bob came to USNA from El 
Cajon, California (four out of five California 
Plebes never heard of it). Mentally, however, 
he was never far from those West Coast 
beaches he loved to talk about. Recruited for 
basketball, he was a steady performer on the 
Plebe team and training table. He spent his 
upperclass years as an outstanding member of 
the company team. A big likable blonde. Bob 
was never one to miss the Sunday hops and 
rarely came away empty handed, his search for 
"the girl" leaving broken hearts from Hyatts- 
ville to San Diego. Bob somehow managed to 
occasionally make Sup's List, despite a propen- 
sity for spending study hour playing cribbage, 
his first love. Navy Lme will be the "Seventh 
Batt Cdr's" fate. A conscientious and deter- 
mined person. Bob will do an outstanding job 
wherever he goes. 


Drifting in from Toledo, Ohio, John put a 
wholehearted effort into his Naval career in- 
cluding dancing instruction where he met his 
OAO. He quickly found a home in the Math 
Department where as the number of class days 
tended toward infinity, his grades tended 
toward Sat. Not to be outdone by additional 
and multiplication. Math soon became John's 
bag, or was it John bagged Mathematics! Not 
one to worry about grease, he soon didn't have 
to. Being a very likable guy, a good friend to 
all who Knew him and a pleasure to associate 
with, John's stay at Navy is sure to end on a 
sweet note, his first in the Drum and Bugle 
Corps. With a ring in his nose, stars in his eyes, 
and his kinky hair blowing in the breeze, John 
should make a good name for himself in the 
surface navy. 


Tom came to USNA from Beaumont, Texas 
with a lot of talent and a Southern drawl you 
could cut with a knife. Before succumbing to 
the monastic environs of Bancroft Hall during 
Plebe year, Tom did his own thing for a year at 
Lamar Tech where he was in ATO. The Big 
Blue team was quick to recognize his ability as 
a wide receiver and punter and he always 
managed to keep himself on top of his academ- 
ics and striper list. In fact, he even managed to 
make Company Commander, despite the fact 
that hardly anyone could understand his "Tex- 
anese." In self defense Tom imported someone 
else from Beaumont, his lovely girl friend, 
Linda, (USNA first Homecoming Queen), 
whom he plans to marry after graduation. This 
hard working young man will certainly be an 
asset to the Texas Navy or Marine Corps.

A native of Randallstown, Maryland, Lee 
x)k a devious route to the Naval Academy via 
vvo years of college at the University of Mary- 
ind and the University of South Carolina. As 

"ROTC" at South Carolina, he quickly 
earned that the Navy was for him. Lee found 
lebe year challenging and rewarding, distin- 
uishing himself as a member of the Plebe 
■restling team. Youngster cruise took him to 
ermany where he didn't let his Irish heritage 
)me between him and that German beer. As a 
hysics major, Lee spent enough time study- 
ig to be a constant member of the Sup's List. 
. was 2/c Summer, in Pensacola, where he 
as bitten by both the flying bug and the 
ight life at "Dirty Joes.' Lee's talent and 
ardworking personality will make him a dedi- 
ited officer, hopefully fulfilling his ambition 
> become either a wearer of dolphins or the 
ings of gold. 


Pulling himself out of a Polish ghetto by the 
Dotstraps, "Ski" came to the school of higher 
arning on the Severn from Rocky River, 
hio. He wasted no time and came directly to 
SNA after graduating from St. Ignatius 
igh School which he considered "the greatest 
ling since sliced bread." Until graduation 
Ski ' claimed the postal service misread the 
idress on his college application and sent it to 
le wrong educational institution in Annapo- 
5. During Plebe summer "Ski" was no great 
lakes at menus, if he didn't know it he was al- 
ays managed to think of one that would 
ease his squad leaders. Youngster year "Ski" 
ved with his roommate "Bones" outside the 
impany area in hibernation and nobody really 
lows what became of those two that year, 
uring that same year he signed with the 
ascjueraders in order to, as he said "avoid 
lysical activity at all cost." "Ski's" second 
st hobby next to sleeping was just sitting 
id wearing his white terry cloth B-robe, 
aoking a bowlful in one of his favorite pipes 
hile listening to his stereo (a habit he says he 
eked up from a good friend who drives a VW 
is). With a major in Poll Sci, "Ski" is certain 

go far in the world. 


Entering the boat school from New Haven, 
)nn., "Nads" quickly made the transition 
om the life of a civilian to that of a Plebe. 
ith Sup's and Dean's List honors constantly 
ider his belt. Bill still found time to help 
ose with academic problems. A member of 
rious company sports, Nads was more at 
me on the squasn courts where he distin- 
lished himself as a member of the Brigade 
ampionship team. His friendly manners 
ide him one of the most popular and well- 
ed members of our class. His high school 
eetheart from Mass. definitely has him tied 
wn for a long, long time. Upon graduation, 
11 will become a member .of Admiral Rick- 
er's elite submarine fleet and proudly wear 
i gold dolphins. With his unfaltering desire 

do his best and his undaunted determina- 
m, Nad will attain his goals no matter how 

h they might be! 


Roberto is perhaps the only man to come to 
the Naval Academy without knowing how to 
do a push-up. He also had a hard time learning 
English at first. However, the "old man" from 
South America was able to rise above this, dis- 
tinguishing himself as a permanent member of 
such groups as the extra duty squad, swim- 
ming sub squad and the "baggers team." 
Above all, "Piz" will be remembered as a lover 
of the good life, plenty of good chow, rack 
time, and "pam-passes. ' He was also quite a 
philosopher, always giving his classmates 
words to live by such as "Give me liberty or 
give me E.D." and "Fat is beautiful." Never- 
theless despite his wit and sarcasm Roberto is 
a very hard working serious guy. After gradu- 
ation he plans to return to his native Bogata, 
Colombia to begain a career with the Merchant

From sunny Concord, Calif, and the fun- 
filled days of high school, Tim set out to meet 
the challenge for Navy. Although he would 
never let anyone know it, academics were no 
problem to Tim as an Applied Science major 
for his QPR was usually well above the 3.0 
mark. Tim is better known for his performance 
on the 150 pound football field where a key 
move from quarterback to guard made him a 
prime contender for the "Heisman" Trophy. 
To Tim, California is the best state in the 
Union, but Maryland will always be remem- 
bered for his many visits to a small town out- 
side of Baltimore that specializes in whiskey 
sours. As a future submariner, Tim will defi- 
nitely distinguish himself as a wearer of dol- 
phins in the hopes that he may one day have 
egg nog" on his vizor. 



Dale came to us from the quiet tree lined - 
lanes of White Plains, N. Y. only to be jolted 1 
into a state of paranoid cynacism hy the ab- I 
surdities of Plebe year. With an infmite run- 
ning capability and a strong determination to 
tackle trie high bar. Dale left his mark on the 
cross country and gymnastic teams. His I 
biggest tragedy in life came to life with the ' 
advent of Youngster year, when he finally j 
came to the realization that it was impossible , 
to fight the "pad monster." Dale proved his 
ultimate prowess during 2/c Summer when he 
hit every major beach and 0-Club between 
Cape Code and Florida, while also receiving of- 
ficial certification of his operation of a pump 
boat. As to academics, well, except for an in- 
tense hatred of "fluids" and "physics," he man- j 
aged to coexist fairly well with the tenors of i 
the academic department. Dale's easygoing 
personality and capability to "hang in there 
will serve him in good stead wherever he goes. 



"Gordy" came to us from St. Pete, Fla. with 
enthusiasm in one hand and his Rebel flag in 
the other. He distinguished himself at USNA 
by achieving high grades and grease his Plebe 
year; then as an upperclassman, he maintained 
his grades and grease while he went on to play 
for 150's and varsity lacrosse. It would seem 
that he could find little free time as a varsity 
athlete, yet he would help a classmate in any 
situation. During 2/c Summer Rod fell in love 
with Pensacola, and nuclear power then took 
back seat to flying jets. When grad rolls 
around and if his eyes, ears, and nose allow it, 
Rod will be on his way to Pensacola.

Being a Navy junior, "Smitty" brought 
many wide and varied experiences with him to 
the Academy. Jim entered the Brigade from 
Princess Anne High School in Virginia Beach, 
but soon lost his tan in the vigors of Plebe 
summer. He had very little trouble adjusting 
to Plebe year and was even known to sing in 
the shower during uniform races. After a brief 
skirmish with the Math Department as a 
Plebe, he bounched right back and was fre- 
quently seen on the Sup's List. Never one to 
ignore a good meal, Jim remained undaunted 
by the attempts of the Navy orthodontists to 
curb his appetite. Athletically, he proved to be 
the backbone of numerous company sports, es- 
pecially those in which physical contact was in- 
volved. His quick wit and jovial personality 
have won him many friends within the Bri- 
gade as well as with the opposite sex. Week- 
ends and leave periods were always spent 
pursuing his favorite interest, his high school 
sweetheart. Jim's sense of adventure has led 
him to choose aviation, a branch that will ben- 
efit greatly from his many talents. 


Straight from high school, with an impres- 
ve record under his belt, Dan fell into the 
utches of the Severn from Escalon, Califor- 
ia. Never one to say die, he attacked Plebe 
ear with enthusiasm that impressed us all. Al- 
lough he seldom took academics lightly, he 
)ntinually astonished his profs by his ability 
) absorb knowledge with both eyes closed in 
leasant oblivion. A Thespian at heart, his in- 
;rest in the Masqueraders backfired, when 
fter acknowledging his major in Economics 
p was saddled with the billet of financial 
iianager. Although he is never at a loss for a 
tte, he has yet to find the "girl of his 
■earns." Dan's professionalism and determi- 
ition insure success in all his endeavors. 


Joe White entered the Academy directly 
from high school in Albuquerque, New Mexico. 
His childhood nickname, Jaybird, was discov- 
ered Plebe year and has stuck with him ever 
since. Jaybird was always a true academic 
"bead." Many nights he would toil far past 
midnight on a single Engineering or Thermo 
problem. But his diligent study paid off by al- 
most always placing him on the Sup's List. 
Joe's free time was divided between deciding 
how to get his '63 Avanti from New Mexico to 
Annapolis, watching horror flicks on the tube, 
and attending Sunday mixers. Jaybird's love 
life left a little to be desired. Two unsuccessful 
stints, one with Chiquita (Banana Woman) and 
one with Suzy (UU) T. J., were supplemented 
by numerous Smoke Hall Hog Contests. And 
then there was Miss March of Dimes at Pitt 
Youngster year. Although he was an excellent 
swimmer. Jaybird was, all around, only a ath- 
lete. His participation ranged from the medi- 
core company volleyball team and infamous 
company fieldball team to batt water polo 
and/or yard sailing. Although Jaybird wanted 
to go Air it looks as though he'll have to be- 
come a welcome addition to some wardroom in 
the fleet instead. He may botch his job but 
they'll love him in the wardroom. 


Dan came to the Naval Academy from a 
small town in Southeastern Texas. Every com- 
pany has its intellectual and Dan was Twelve's 
star man. Although he carried overloads each 
semester as a Physics major, he was always a 
member of the Dean's List. He could always be 
counted upon to be giving E.L during study 
hour, solving the problems of even the most 
baffling profs. Usually a member of the "in 
crowd" on weekends, he could be found in the 
pad. Upon graduation his perseverance will 
take him a long way in whichever service he

A Navy junior who graced USNA immedi 
ately upon graduation from JEB Stuart Higl 
School in Falls Church, Virginia, the "Bear 
quickly threw himself into the military regi 
ment by growing his sideburns and brassoinj 
his shoes. Possessed of g^-eat individual driv 
and determination, he has excelled on the bat 
handball and company slow pitch softbal 
teams. Off the athletic field he has endurei 
Oceanography and pursued an independen 
study project of horizontal envelopment be 
tween the sheets of his rack. It's no secret tha 
"Suzy-Bear" would like him to choose 
"CIVLANT" on grad day, but Wally feels tha 
surface line and ultimately the CEC are mor 
deserving of his talents. 



"Dekes" reported for his 4 year tour at 
USNA from Rochester, New York to find that 
the Severn River paradise had fewer luxuries 
than home. He used to like to hunt and swim 
whenever he could when he was home, but 
s{)ent most of his time pursuing a Physics 
major at Navy and may try for the NUKES. 
He works hard during the week so he can bag 
it on the weekends, and spends his liberty 
hours with a Maryland girl. He liked the com- 
pany sports and is recognized as a conservative 
in most respects. 


Stalking out of the backwoods of Kentuck 
Ger came to USNA as a true "Southern Get 
tleman" with a passion for wires, war, an 
women — in that order. Even a blow to th 
head during Plebe Summer could not chang 
him and, after spooning President Nixon an 
the CNO, he finished his first year under th 
gentle tutelege of "Rach" — from whom \ 
learned the subtle art of "borrowing thinf 
forever." Although in love with transistors ar 
integrated circuits, this wires maior four, 
time for the finer things in life — like a ce 
tain young beauty from Seattle and, on occi 
sion, sleep. Preferring the Marine Corps ' 
more civilized pursuits, Ger hopes to fly wil 
the men in green. We are sure the Corps w 
be proud to have him in their ranks.

Another of the class sages, Pat left L. A. and 
be sun for the backwoods of Annapolis. Being 

Navy Jr. he was well oriented to the Navy 
?ay of life and took the Academy in stride, 
leaning more toward athletics, than the 
ooks, Pat always kept studies in its proper 
erspective and has battled the academic de- 
artment to a virtual standstill over the past 
OUT years. After a stint with Plebe football 
2am Pat joined Coach Cloud's Little Blue 
'here he started at tackle for three seasons, 
'ff the field he enjoys sleep, good scotch, and 
nendly people. Following graduation Pat 
opes to be sitting in the front seat of a jet — 
wner or later, that is. 


Born at the Corpus Christi Naval Air Sta- 
tion in Texas, Bob took the first hop out and 
kept on jumping from one air station to anoth- 
er until he fmally settled down in Fairfax, Va. 
two years prior to entering USNA. A Navy 
iunior all the way "Doc" decided to follow his 
brother's footsteps and entered the Naval 
Academy. After being stalled Plebe year by 
Rach's whistle. Bob not only excelled in aca- 
demics but also on the 4 o'clock football and 
basketball teams. When Doc was not sneaking 
off for a quick game on the squash courts he 
could be found keeping up on professionalism 
and trivia for his weekend competitions with 
the Plebes. We are sure that Bob's friendliness 
and easygoing personality will make him many 
friends when he joins the fleet. 


Unfortunately for all his "buddies" in the 
13th Company, Pete came to USNA from 
Salix, a small town in the green hills of Penn- 
sylvania. Pete achieved immediate fame at the 
Academy with his flat-top, skin-head haircut 
Plebo year and from then on the sky became 
the limit on Pete's success. Drobs, Drop Kick, 
and many other unprintable words became the 
call name for this future fly boy, and everyone 
knew he could always count on Pete for the 
gouge. In the battle for Pete's free time in the 
hall, the wardroom inevitably won out over the 
books, as he was an avid armchair sports fan. 
Somehow though, Pete still managed to shine 
academically, often ending up on the Sup's 
List. After graduation, Pete foresees two 
years on the sea than its definitely the wild 
blue yonder, for what could be a more fitting 
way to finish a brilliant Navy career. 



Wedged between the watchful eyes of JFK 
and his Atlantic Richfield Girl, G. M. could be 
found any time of the day in his rack. After 
success as a Ledyard High School wrestler, 
Mitscher gave it a try Plebe year but was des- 
tined to be 150 lb. football guard in his Red 
Grange shoes. When not making popcorn, Gary 
could be found pursuing his part time job with 
G.M. Enterprises, a subsidiary of- Bob Hall's 
Sporting Goods. A quick defender of Manage- 
ment Majors and his home state, Connecticut, 
Gary could be depended upon to speak up no 
matter what the situation. Gary, who was up 
for flying but whose eyes weren't, has become 
a firm believer in the saying "Navy Line is 
mighty fine." Whatever the future and Navy 
offers Gary, he can look forward to the finest.

The Desert Rat, hailing from somewhere 
)eyond the Great Divide, quickly established 
limself as the Bill Cosby of "Mother B." He 
lould constantly be found whistling and hum- 
ning to himself under the pretense that it kept 
)oth the executive and academic departments 
(Ut of his hair. "Job," as he was affectionately 
cnown, could not be accused of being partial, 
or he spent equal time between his fiancee 
ind his other "extracurricular" activities, most 
amous of which were the rack and the erotic 
vallpaper that decorated his room. Bill, none- 
heless, is a true believer in the military way of 
ife and should prove a valuable asset to Navy 


Larry came to the Naval Academy from 
IcLean, Virginia. He can be identified as 
Lima Echo," a man full of energy and enthu- 
iasm. As one of the Jones' in thirteen, he loves 
do just about everything and enjoys most 
ny task. His best interests include his girl, 
!arrol, sports, and all kinds of excitement. At 
he Academy he received a Plebe football let- 
er. Sup's List, and a "Black N." An optimist at 
eart, Lima plans to go Surface Line at gradu- 
tion. With his major in Naval Architecture, 
e someday wants to build and design ships of 
he future. 


Rick's carefree, fun-loving attitude has 
made him a treasured friend of many, as well 
as the target of numerous practical jokes. Al- 
though his heart lies in his native California, 
"Shakey Jakes" spends most of his leisure 
hours riding his motorcycle around his home- 
town of Bethesda, Md. "Love God" is a con- 
firmed bachelor (ha!) having decided that to 
give himself to one girl would be depriving 
millions. The phrase "Watch out. Shake is 
bulking up," echoed in the halls of 13 2/c year 
as Rick made good on his body-building cam- 
paign. No longer was Rick the target of show- 
er parties he became the source of them. Rick's 
desire to get to the bottom of things has led 
him towards a career in subs — a decision 
about which the Navy will certainly have no 


Born and raised in San Francisco, Tom is a 
fun-loving, happy-go-lucky guy who can't keep 
away from girls. He has mystified everyone 
with his unique ability of picking up girls, and 
he has taken the pick of the lot for his fiancee. 
Tom is also affectionately known as "the social 
worker" for two reasons. One, he is always en- 
gaged in activities such as the POW campaign 
and two, he plays cupid for his buddies on the 
weekends. For the past three years Tom has 
had an illegal monopoly on stationery sales. 
The stationery business was quite profitable 
for "TL" but the phone company command- 
ered most of it. "TL" has a passion for talking, 
and when his girl in Seattle is on the other end 
of the line, the money seems to disappear. Un- 
less Tom becomes addicted to the rolling waves 
of the ocean, Navy Air may inherit another 
blind flyer as an >JFO. Either way, the Navy 
can be justly proud when this Calif, boy hits 
the fleet. 


Known to the world as P-nut, Don came to 
ISNA from Grand Rapids, Michigan, where 
e spent his innocent years. 'The innocent years 
re now behind him, however, thanks to good 
le D. A. (Ret.) and company. Financially 
linded, P-nut was always thinking of some 
ew coin-making schemes, often resulting in 
et another recession, but he never let lack of 
loney get in his way. Academics proved no 
reat strain for P-nut, being a regular on the 
up's List, for he could always be seen consult- 
ig his magic pillow during any free period. In 
16 future, P-nut plans to really buckle down, 
wever, devoting his entire efforts to better- 
ig first the Navy, then the world. 


Nicks came to Navy directly from high 
school in Alamogordo, New Mexico. Although 
Frank was a little quiet when he first arrived 
at Annapolis, Plebe Year changed him consid- 
erably. He can be known as a terror amongst 
the 4/c. He is sometimes a little noisy when 
things go wrong, but Nicks is a man of perfec- 
tion and good discipline; he can even get offi- 
cers jumpy. Franks nature goes to the girl he 
loves best; if it is not borrowing a dime to call 
Maureen, he is always thinking about being 
outside dragging her. The Sup's List is Nicks 
good friend, but there is still plenty of time for 
yawl sailing. A determined, intelligent and 
witty young man Frank will go Marine Corps 
when he graduates.

Chuck, affectionately known to his class- 
mates as "Mattress Back" came to USNA 
from Penn Hills, Pennsylvania. His high school 
career is marked by numerous athletic 
triumphs and many other interesting adven- 
tures which he will gladly tell you about if you 
have a few "minutes," of "free" time. After a 
year of fun and games at NAPS, Chuck came 
to the Academy with visions of tearing up the 
academics and going on to become an ace pilot. 
Well grades caused somewhat of a setback, 
and a few tense moments first semester -Plebe 
year, but since then he has been out of the 
rack enough to pull the old grades up and has 
even made the Sup's List on at least one occa- 
sion. As for Naval Aviation, well it looks like 
the Navy has provided still another setback, 
namely an 18 month or longer ocean voyage. 
As for flying, well it looks like after a brief 
delay at TBS he will go on to become one of 
the finer Marine Aviators. 


Carl came to us from Poly Tech in gorgeous, 
fulfilled Baltimore. Shortly after making his 
presence felt here at the Academy, he estab- 
lished himself as one of the searching, probing, 
hard-charging whiz kids in the field of eco- 
nomics and certain intercurricular activities. 
His academics posing no problem, "Straw- 
berries" quickly conquered Navy, by posting a 
4.0 Youngster year. Never quite winning an 
N*, Carl nonetheless distinguished himself 
somewhat dubiously by his unparalleled at- 
tainment of unloading an F-bomb during 
Youngster Year. Always known for his humor, 
Carl could be depended upon to bring a mo- 
ment of joy to anyone whenever they were 
done. In his latter years, Carl could usually be 
seen being herded by a gorgeous, young filly 
from B-more. Coming on strong, Carl became 
the head ram-rodder in company affairs. We 
are all sure that in the up and coming years, 
Carl will be a real stand-out aboard one of 
Navy's finest surface vessels.

Flying in on a repossessed Cuban airliner,

i'lorida, slinked into our midst wide eyed and 
eady for action — any kind. A continual and 
vorthy opponent of the mile run, profs, and

Lloyd, a true native of "God's country," was 
nported from Closter, N. J. which he mod- 
tly describes as the "Hub of the Northern 
alley." Following a dynamic Plebe year in 
hich "Swifter" both amazed and fed the 
hole company with his continual supply of 
low packages and mail. Lloyd easily assumed

a CSB (Company sports bagger) early 
oungster year, Lloyd devoted most of his 
me to studies and the rack. Being a member 
'the varsity with a major in Ocean Engineer- 
ig, the weekends usually found our hero in 
le hall. Early 2/c year following a harrowing 
cperience with the Dental Department "Rip 
in Swift" distinguished himself with a Bri- 
ide record — 17+ straight hours in the rack, 
rades not being one of Lloyds strong points 

easily overcomes this with his friendly, 
isygoing nature. Wherever he goes in the ser- 
ce he will be remembered by his classmates 
id will surely become an outstanding officer. 


Olaf came to USNA straight out of Ware 
tioals High School in South Carolina to begin 
8 four year struggle through a Physics 
ajor. In addition to his studies, he spent 
any hours playing polkas on his accordion 
id chasing little white balls around the 
SNA golf course. A strict Southern conserva- 
ve from way back, he learned much about the 
•eal" world and its problems by reading his 
Washington Post faithfully every morning. 
rhe Ware Shoals Life beats the hell out of 
le Post any day," is one of his favorite 
yings. After a couple of "warm up" years at 
sa, Olaf plans to go Nuclear Power. 


Coming to Mother "B" from the Windy City, 
Steve gave the 13th Company its soul. He 
wasted no time starting right away working 
and singing his way thru Plebe Summer. As an 
upperclassman, however, Steve traded in his 
microphone for a pair of genuine Marine Corps 
boots (to run in). At the same time he started 
his famous 3 year diet which unlike most diets, 
somehow was designed not to lose weight. At 
least that's how it worked out. Being a real 
fighter, Steve had two loves inside the Acade- 
my's walls (not to mention many laying in wait 
on the outside), boxing and academics. Neither 
were able to get the better of Steve, however, 
even though many close fights were fought 
both in the ring and in the classroom. Having 
been a member of the "Dirty Dozen," his never 
say die attitude and g^eat leadership potential, 
Steve is certain to have a most promising ca- 
reer with the Marine Corps. "You see what I'm 



"Wechs," another product of "God's coun- 
try" came to the thriving metropolis of Annap- 
olis by way of Moorestown, New Jersey. Easily 
adjusting to military life, old "Stone Face

formation. No academic slouch, "Wechs" un- 
failingly found his way to the Sup's List be- 
coming somewhat famous by consistently pull- 
ing it out in the end. Realizing early 2/c year 
that a "well rounded individual" was more: 
valuable than an Aerospace whiz kid, "Wechs" 
switched over to the M.E. Department. Being 
a natural athlete, intramurals were ecstacy 
and "Wechs" could be whizzing around Hospi- 
tal Point leading 3rd Batt. cross country to an 
undefeated season. Wherever he goes in the

Steve Bills — Buffalo — is outwardly an 
amalgam of many qualities. Predominantly, 
his wit which is quick, sometimes vicious, and 
always well directed is a greater part of his 
personality and always a source of amusement 
for his companions. This would include his 
work in the massive POW-MIA letter writing 
campaign, his constant association with the 
Chinese foreign language department, and his 
ready devotion to the swimming sub squad. 
His closer friends would probably agree that 
Steve is the most virtuous and morally con- 
scientious person they know, often to the dis- 
comfort of the convicted sinners. From Salt 
Lake City, his affiliation to his church is deep 
and concerned. His approach to the Navy and 
to his career pattern is philosophical. He will 
apply his uncommon brand of zeal to whatever 
service claims him. Steve will know his job, 
and will be a success to his calling. 



Born and raised in the dairyland of Wiscon- 
sin, Dick left his mark in intramurals with sev- 
eral Brigade championships in tennis and as 
the heaviest man in the company lightweight 
football squad. It seems that he could always 
be found dieting to make the next weigh-in. 
As soon as Dick laid his eyes on his first scuba 
tank, he was "hooked" not only on the 0515 ice- 
breaking sessions in the pool, but even spent 
most of his 2/c Summer leave 60 feet under 
with the professionals at Key West, Florida. 
Having caught a lot of "gas" as a Management 
"jock,' Dick "gagged" on an overload each se- 
mester, but still pulled very good marks and 
another major in Computers. With Dick's 
devotion and sense of duty, he should have an 
outstanding career in the Navy. 


Dudes came to USNA from Attica, New 
York, home of the New York State Prison. 
High School wasn't any sweat for Dave as he 
captained the wrestling and track teams. Navy 
could do little more. Dudes wrestled Plebe year 
and only a crippling injury prevented him 
from having a successful career here. Academ- 
ics weren't that much trouble as evidenced by 
his membership. A wires major, Dave would 
take time out from his studies to help all with 
lowly fruit juice. Times away from Navy 
would find him in happy communion with the 
best of the local brew. A good buddy, espe- 
cially for drinking, Dave is sure to be a success 
in the Navy just like he has been everywhere

Tim, better known to the guys as T. R., came 
o the Academy from Raytown, Missouri, 
vhere he was accustomed to the quiet life of 
nidwestern suburbia. As a true Missourian, 
rim said, "Okay, show me what Navy's all 
ib(Dut," and with that the upperclassmen wast- 
id no time. The resulting disillusionment re- 
[uired considerable adjustment on Tim's part, 
)ut his determination carried him through and 
nto Youngster Year, when he "slashed out" 
kfith a 3.0. Tim's uncanny ability to sleep with 
lis eyes open fooled many a prof, yet he still 
eemed to absorb everythmg the academic de- 
lartment could throw at him. A visit to T. R.'s 
com would usually find him bent over a stack 
if books — studying football plays. The pit of 
\ R.'s college days was the varsity swimming 
squad," but not even the P.T. Department

The outspoken, red-headed, ex-boatswain's 
late Boston Irish Catholic is Michael John

hysics major and he dedicates himself to the

Eric came to Annapolis from the beaches 
and sunshine of Los Angeles. He found out 
very quickly that the Academy was, to say the 
least, different from the civilian life he was 
used to and had grown very fond of. Duster, as 
he was known as after demonstrating his un- 
matchable skills on the pool table, tooK advan- 
tage of as many "Navy good deals" as possible. 
He was active in the Scuba Club where he 
qualified as a diving instructor enabling him to 
get up at 5 a.m. three times a week to teach; 
he spent a good deal of time on the Chesa- 
peake, sailing 5 sets on yawls and Class "A" 
Doats. Eric also played some of the more vio- 
lent sports — rugby, fieldball and football. His 
Oceangraphy major was at times neglected 
and sometimes he had to struggle to maintain 
his 2.5+ QPR. After here the future is uncer- 
tain, but there is a distinct possibility that Eric 
will be catching some rays down in Pensacola. 


Chip came to Annapolis from a family deep 
>otea in the Naval tradition. He has lived all 
rer the country but his last stop before 
SNA was York Harbor, Maine. A runner 
om way back, it's not unusual to wake up at 
)15 and see Chip walking down the hall in 
veat gear, just returning from a morning 
orkout. What makes a guy get up that early 
I go running is a question that many cannot 
iswer. Insanity is one possibility! It's been 
uch and go between Chip and the Academy 
epartment, but a great desire has kept him 
inning. This same great desire together with 
dedication to duty will give the Navy a fine 


Goldy came to USNA after spending a year 
at Brooklyn College. Never getting used to 
calling Mother "B' home, our city boy made 
the most of his rearing by excelling on the 
handball courts, the theatre, and quotations 
from "The New York Times." On his first en- 
counter with the Academy Goldy was a bit 
more than surprised at the change in life- 
styles, let alone those extracurricular physical 
workouts. Known for his "300 women" and his 
5 a.m. shadow after morning meal, Goldy could 
be found by the dust covered volumes in the 
Library during the day. Always ready to offer 
his opinion, help and advise, the best time to 
catch him was at night burning the midnight 
oil. With his avid interest in travel and world 
affairs (just what did he do on those overseas 
jaunts on leave?) We expect Goldy to make the 
most of his fun-loving personality and quest 
for answers for the Navy and the country.

The summer of 1968 saw Kershaw, South 
Carolina sending Larry to the halls of Mother 
"B." His outgoing personality and acute atten- 
tion to detail won him many friends that 
"long, hot summer." There he distinguished 
himself as the only 4th classman to call a 
"Plebe-ho." Selecting Aero as his major, he 
spent a great deal of time studying. This both- 
ered him little, as he became a regular name 
on both the Sup's and Dean's Lists. When not 
embracing the "blue trampoline," Larry could 
be found opening holes as a tackle for the batt 
football team. athletic ability found him 
fame on the company fieldball and softball 
teams, but almost failed him when swimming 
drifted around on the P.E. schedule. In the 
deep blue after graduation, his talents will

Bill came to USNA from the USA (pick any 
state), since he was a Navy junior. With a 
major in Math Theory and a minor in Life, Bill 
never hestitated to put his projects aisde in 
order to help a classmate solve an insolvable 
math problem, which seem to abound in plenty 
— here at Canoe U. Prof. Kennedy can't un- 
derstand how those he helped keep better 
grades than he. After a slow start, Bill man- 
aged to improve his QPR every semester so 
that he could go underway-underwater. Al- 
though he considered Fran as his weekend stu- 
dent, she "managed" to graduate cum laude 
and Phi Beta Kappa. Following the tradition 
set by his roommates. Bill dragged his body to 
the pool at 0500 each morning to dabble his 
feet with the Scuba Club. Bill fenced his first 
two years but gave it up for the varsity Lucky 
Bag team of which he was the co-captain. Bill

on weekends. Having the first 2/c "vette," in 
the company gave him the wings necessary to 
beat the clock many a night. After walking in 
the clouds 2/c year, Matt came back to earth to 
take over as he got his pin back and started 
settling down again by 1/c year academics, all 
to the joy of his 37 female followers and took 
over as head manager of the 150 lb. football 
team. He has no intentions of settling down at 
the present which should bring joy to th( 
hearts of his female followers. 8tn and I bettei 
be ready when Matt joins and shows then 
some marching secrets.

Richard Thomas "Jocko, Jacko, Jake, the In- 
ternational Man, Mr. Sex" Jackson. The only 
[person who picks up a new nickname every 
lyear, was deported from New Zealand in 1968 
to become a member of USNA Class of 1972. 
While here Jake became known as one of the 
,most professional midshipmen in the Brigade. 
JA member of the Sup's and Dean's Lists, Jacko 
almost fits the officer, scholar, and gentleman 
iphrase perfectly, except for his over indul- 
gence in wine, women and talking. The world 
traveler has a wide variety of musical tastes, 
ranging from rock, folk and soul to jazz, blues, 
and classical. Mr. Sex the Man with the funny 
accent which brings girl after girl his way is a 
teen conversationalist. His oratorical prowess 
Afas a high at midshipman band concerts which 
le announced. An Oceanography major. Jocko, 
s a firm believer that N-A-V-Y spells ocean 
ind everyone expects him to make Admiral 
SNZN, in record time. 


Pat, known to us as P. D., came to these 
hallowed halls" from Falls Church, Virginia. 
Straight out of Woodson H. S. Pat became a 
aluaole asset to both the Plebe football and 
acrosse teams, but varsity lacrosse won his 
leart and he has lettered ever since. Because 
'. D. was a "ball player" he was an outstand- 
ng asset to the company heavies." His con- 
emporaries knew they could count on Pat for 
, smile or a good word (being one of the last 
eal ralliers). Alone or with his sidekick, 
Jancy, he was the life of the party "whether 
e remembered it or not!" Academics pre- 
ented a problem but never stood in the way of 

party, weekend, card ^ame, ball game, or 
ood movie. He is still climbing to that great 
i'hite "Vette" in the sky and upon graduation 
e would like to fly the friendly skies of Navy 
lir. Because of his personality and competitive 
ature he will make a fine officer. 


Hailing from Greer, South Carolina, Ralph 
spent a year at Auburn University where ne 
found the wild frat life not suited to his fancy. 
He decided to leave the good life for the more 
rewarding challenge at Navy. A devoted 
friend of the boob tube, he was nonetheless 
able to pull good grade in Political Science. 
Being a good athlete, Ralph helped all the com- 
pany intramural teams (volleyball, football, 
and Softball) he played for. His speed and agili- 
ty, if not his size, were his main assets. Ralph, 
"Gubble-Gobble," was always up for a party, 
and from his "Aesop's Fables" one was led to 
believe that he was one of the "wildest tur- 
keys" to ever enlighten our halls. His personal- 
ity won him many friends while at the Univer- 
sity of Navy, and will undoubtedly carry him 
far in his career. His interest after graduation 
lies in Marine law, with the governship of 
South Carolina among his more distant goals. 


Robert E. Lee thinks in living color — green. 
However, discounting his sleeping in fatigues 
and showering in combat boots, Bobby is just 
like any other model midshipman (ne even 
half-masts his blinds). His antics on the b-ball 
court as well as in the classroom has baffled 
many. But nothing gets him down. He is so op- 
timistic that he expects to find a filet mignon 
in his c-rations. With his luck it will be there. 
We all pray for his graduation and realize one 
thing is for sure. The U.S. Marine Corps will 
not be with sending Bob Lee, the academician 
to grad school. 


Ken, a product of Bozeman, Mont, came to 
ie Naval Academy out of high school. A 
-andout in football, baseball, basketball and 
•ack, Ken lent his abilities to the Plebe foot- 
all team until sidelined by an injury. Howev- 
', he has since become an asset to the intra- 
lural sports program. A devoted engineer, his 
ard work has placed him on both the Sup's 
nd Dean's Lists, but he has still found time to 
)end many of his weekends in Malvern, Pa. A 
reat addition to any party, he and his vodka 
)ttle have successfully dodged the Comman- 
int's policemen many weekends. His Marine 
3rps hopes stopped short" in Quantico 2/c 
Jmmer, he now hopes to drive a submarine 
<T a few vears before returning to a career in 
vilian life. 


Dave lived in Chicago, 111. before moving to 
Mother "B." Here at the Academy he has been 
active in sports and has received many nick- 
names throughout the Brigade. To the batt. 
handball team he's known as "Cool Hand 
Schneegs," to the lightweight football team 
he's "Mr. Fleetfoot," to the rugby team he's 
"The Bruiser," to the P.T. class he's "The 
Breaststroke Wonder" and the best of section 
leaders he's everything from "Shenigus" to 
"Schneeg7"ass." Scnneegs has never had a prob- 
lem with academics. Some people attribute this 
to his large hat size (Dave holds the record for 
the largest head in the company and probably 
in the Brigade). Dave majors in Applied 
Science and hopes to pursue his career in the 
sub force. Dave is a member of EXE, USNA 
Glee Club and Catholic Choir, and can he sing!

Richard has been ? bench mark for military 
adaptability throughout his career as a micf- 
shipman. He takes special interest in his pro- 
fessional courses and prides himself in his im- 
mediate grasp of naval terms. The glorious 
Navy will undoubtedly remain his life after 
graduation and as long as the tides continue to 
ebb and flow, Rick Scholl will be seen standing 
on the bridge of his reserve DD, binnacle in 
hand, shouting, commands to his admiring 
watch team. We, his classmates, stand so as- 
sured of his success that we voted him the B. J. 
Quinn award for professional achievement. 


Denny stalked the Academy for several 
years before joining our "world's largest fra- 
ternity." Coming from northern Delaware, he 
was off to a fine start Plebe year when he was 
a member of the dinghy sailing team, received 
national ranking as a member of the Plebe 
rifle team, and placed himself permanently on 
the list of star men. Plebe year also saw Den 
get his braces on and they stayed on for 3-'/^ 
years causing him endless agony, but getting 
nim completely out of boxmg while at the 
Academy. Discovering the mysterious joys of 
the undersea world by watching Mike Nelson 
on Sea Hunt, Den learned about them in his 
major of OceanogT-aphy, and finally experi- 
enced them himself by becoming a qualified 
member of the Scuba Club (although he was 
nearly "deep-sixed" on one dive when he was 
out of air at 120 feet). Somehow Denny man- 
aged to bounce his vision from 20:20 to 20:50 
in hopes of going Navy Air, but was undecided 
about taking a Burke Scholarship or flying — 
ideally he would take both. For the time being 
he merely contents himself with sitting in the 
cockpit of his 240Z, commuting from a certain 
hideout to school for his 4-V4 day work week. 


Galen Wilcox, or more appropriate, Bush, of- 
fers the most uproarious sense of wit, philoso- 
phy and intellectualism that the Academy will 
ever know. A conversation with Galen is a se- 
ries of mis-aligned, overstated remarks. Com- 
ing from a family history of Academy gradu- 
ates, Galen calls Norman, Oklahoma his home. 
He has been able to brush aside the recurring 
"Okie" stigTTia by his fervent pride in the lively 
college town and the Oklahoma Sooners, who 
will always edge the Big Blue as his favorite 
teams. He is a remarkable athlete whose tal- 
ents on the basketball court seem sometime 
wasted at a company level. However, as a Lit- 
erature major, Galen is sometimes suspect. 
Still, he is responsible and will be capable of 
any job upon graduation.

An inquisitive B-more lad, Joe finally settled 
down at USNA to spend his college years. 
Since his first day here, he has made many fine 
adjustments in the ways of Academy exist- 
ience. His words to live by were soon cherished 
fn the belief of the highest ideals of discipline, 
accountability and routine. Occasionally 
playing a game of poker with the Executive 
Department, his record heralds no "Black N's." 
With a desire to excel and a truly competitive 
ipirit, he took on Analytical Management as 
lis major — going from unsat to stars in one 
jasy semester. If Joe isn't too old after his tour 
on the high seas, he hopes to be flying high. 
With the realistic sense of values that modern 
Vnnapolis had to offer, countered only by his 
ievious sense of humor and the seven mile 
imit — he calls his past years a totally unsur- 
)assed and truly unique experience in that 
lomplexity called life. 


Truly dedicated to the Navy through a great 
amily heritage, C. James Wigge has been "at 
ome in Annapolis. This dedication, with spe- 
ial devotion to Navy Air, had been manifested 
1 his Aerospace Engineering major and his 
/ealth of professional knowledge concerning 
ircraft. Jim takes pride in all his activities at 
JSNA. His performance on the heralded 3rd 
lattalion cross country team was superb, not 
9 mention his feats on the basketball court 
nd golf course. Jim's life, though very serious 
lost of the time, has a sense of fun and adven- 
ure which kept him sane. Reputed once as 
4th's answer to Dobbie Gillis, Jim has had fe- 
lales wondering. His manipulations of inter- 
sts and activities should certainly qualify Jim 
ar his management abilities. Alameda, Cali- 
Drnia has given him so many fabulous memo- 
ies, that those who meet him find an absolute 
lentification with Northern California, in 
articular San Francisco Bay area. Fate may 
estroy Jim's aspirations for pilot's school, but 
lere is a bright future ahead for such a tai- 
nted man. To know Jim and have him for a 
•lend is truly a cherished experience. 


Dreaming of Navy flights, Lee flew into 
anoe U. from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania only 
iree weeks after graduation from high school, 
rades didn't come easily during those four 
2ars in his life, so he was often the last in bed 
t night in the company. And when term pa- 
2rs or take home tests were due, Lee often 
rested the rising sun with a scowl; there was 
K) much work left to be done. After he broke 
s leg skiing in February of 2/c Year, he be- 
ime careful with his extracurricular activi- 
es . . . that is, until he got his dream car. On 
eekends during 1/c year, that gold 'Vette of 
s was never around! Lee learned to keep his 
ichelor's status almost the hard way. He 
leaked out of a hot and heavy romance just in 
me to see that, yes, there are many other nice 
rls in the world! Asked if he plans to make 
le Navy a career, Lee will not answer. If his 
'es remain good enough, long enough, 
lances are good that he will make a long stay 
aviation, if not a career. In the meantime, 
e'll be flying low in that gold Corvette. 


"Van" waltzed into Annapolis from the 
great Buckeye state and traveled through the 
ordeal of USNA with ease. He attained a "re- 
spectable" academic standing but the "Sup" 
never quite saw fit to land him. Much of his 
time was spent away from the books. He was 
"canary-legs" with the rugby ball, "phantom" 
during leave, "Easy-rider" on his bike, and 
"Quaker" to the girls. Never quite taking any- 
thing seriously except his Oceanography, he 
pursued his passion of the ocean by sailing, 
swimming, skin diving, and surfing. He would 
like to end up in ASW or UDT but would face 
any branch of the Navy with the same sarcasm 
he faces all life with.

Gary Allen, called "Beast" by all of us who 
loved his little body, daily cheered us on to 
greater heights through his own example. De- 
spite his short legs and short crew cut, this fu- 
ture wearer of the green was never short on 
brain power, humor or determination, con- 
stantly inspiring those around him to do bet- 
ter, or to take showers. The future looks very 
bright for Gary, his one and only and the 
Corps; his wit, sense of humor and common 
sense will be a positive contribution to the ser- 
vice. I rank this man 4 of 4. 


In June of '68, Bo came to the Academy 
carrying a guitar, plow boots, and a lazy 
Southern drawl. He quickly made a name for 
himself, being one of those gifted with the abi- 
lity to study rarely and still hit the infamous 
2.0 mark. Bo can either be found at an all night 
bridge table, in front of the tube, in the rack, 
or talking about Kathy. In June of '72, they 
will join the ranks of those couples trading 
blue for g^-een, and carry well the banner of 
Southern hospitality for many years.

Paul hopes to discover two things during his 
our years at the Naval Academy: popularity, 
nd love. Paul had great dreams of being a 
ymnastics star and Navy cheerleader, 
'hrough these channels he would win the 
earts of many young girls. He found neither 
f these, but still Paul was not a complete fail- 
re. At least fifty young girls claimed having 
pent one weekend with him at a football 
ame, dance, or movie. It was rumored that he 
ad compiled the largest address book ever at 
JSNA. Despite these small successes Paul 
•ranched off into other areas of broadening his 
pagination. Through his Oceanography major 
>aul studied the clouds in the sky and fishes of 
he sea. As first class year arrived he diverted 
is attention to cars, but unfortunately not 
nough. Paul did become popular enough, how- 
ver, to be accepted for nuclear power training 
t Mare Island. Hopefully his experiences at 
JSNA have prepared him well for that girl. 


Bruce came to USNA from the town of Oys- 
ter Bay, Long Island, and via the Villanova 
ROTC Unit. A dedicated career man from the 
start, weird Brew has made his mark at Navy 
by his high grades and great personality. His 
frequent trips to Europe and his exchange 
cruise with Spain for first class year have done 
much to increase U.S. goodwill abroad and to 
fatten up his international black book, volumes 
I and II. Bruce's coronet 400 with the re-cycled 
mileage gauge has been seen tearing up the 
tracks from Canada and D. C. to Annapolis for 
the past few months and rumor has it the 
200,000 mile check-up is right around the cor- 
ner. Bru's choice on service selection night was 
mighty fine and he and his 400 will be taking 
the cross country route to Long Beach, this 
July after all the wedding reception and free 
booze are over. Success is definitely in the off- 
ing for Bruce — anyone who puts up with five 
years of college is bound to wind up a success. 


Bill spent most of his first three years in 
lubbard Hall. When he wasn't busy rowing on 
he waters of the surrounding area, he could 
isually be found studying his bed. He could al- 
vays oe found on the Sup's and frequently on 
he Dean's List. For three years he proved to 
)e the resident Economics expert in the 15th 

ompany. First class year found Bill spending 
nore time with the company in and out of 
Bancroft Hall. A fortunate change for the 
;ompany and Bill. The fleet is gaining a highly 
notivated and highly talented line officer des- 
ined for success. 


Taught the tricks of the trade by his broth- 
er, Paul never did get caught. The "Hue" was 
never one to let the system get to him. Week- 
ends found him romping to the Charter House, 
Ho Jo's, or the Woodlawn Tavern for a "Cold 
frostie." Paul's athletic prowess and sense of 
humor made him easy to live with in his years 
at Navy. Rather than wear out his eyes he 
spent frequent laborious hours sweating over 
the tube. But in the real nitty gritty he could 
belt out a sure B term paper in 36 hours. In all, 
Dunna is a man of liberal education, refined 
manners, punctilious courtesy, and the nicest 
sense of personal honor. 


Gas' first two years at USNA were wisely 
pent mingling in the shadows of his slide rule, 
nin-up bar, and rack. Although the walking 
nuscle was dynamite with da chicks, Wood- 
tock could never be accused of wasting his 
ime or money on women. A June Week date 
vith a shapely redhead thwarted his attempt 
go without a date his last three years at the 
Academy. Aspiring towards the nuclear power 
irogram. Gas invested many hours pursuing 
lis Applied Science curriculum, as evidenced 
ly his high marks. With this type of dedication 
nd ability. Gas should encounter calm seas 
nd a following breeze always contributing to 
mooth sailing in his career as a naval officer. 


"Gomes" came to the Academy after three 
years of military high school. He withstood the 
rigors of his Pfebe year and became an avid 
scuba diver and flying enthusiast his Young- 
ster year. His interest in flying were well 
known in the company and he was often the 
authority on naval aircraft. John worked hard 
on his academics throughout his four years and 
could often be found burning the midnight oil. 
However, John had no qualms about catching 
Z's when he could, and a certain chief petty of- 
ficer can testify to this. John's interest and 
dedication to flying will be of great value to 
himself and the Marine Corps in the coming

Bill came to the Naval Academy from the 
mountains of Colorado, and during his four 
year internment has managed to escape the 
rigors of the system. Always available for a 
night of bridge, Bill has seldom found difficul- 
ties with the academics. His ambition lies with 
the airdale branch as an NFO, and although al- 
ways ready to procrastinate for a while with 
15B, his desire and determination should put 
that goal in easy reach. 


Artie came to USNA directly from high 
school, and brought a bit of Brooklyn with 
him. Never at a loss for something to do, "A. 
J." spent most of his last two years fighting a 
gallant war with the Department of Engineer- 
ing and Weapons. But a cool head and hard de- 
termination enabled him to escape with only 
minor battle scars and a degree in Foreign Af- 
fairs. Well remembered for his first trip to 
Philadelphia, Artie seems to have a good time 
wherever he goes. After graduation he intends 
to amuse himself playing with the Marines. 


A Marine Corps junior, F. K. came to the 
Academy from Barstow, California, inquisitive 
and not unprepared as evidenced by a cheery 
Plebe Summer. Friends like Fargo R. and the 
Math Department left him with many memo- 
ries, while Youngster boxing and Plebe detail 
added color and WRNV and F. K.'s added en- 
joyment. During his stay, two sports became 
his, sailing and all its extracurricular activities 
were first, the second being, picked up on a 
stormy weekend in November of Youngster 
Year. Three years and three varsity letters are 
proof of his successes. Academically, a Foreign 
Affairs major provided interest, knowledge, 
long hours, and a slightly above average cum. 
Between studies he could usually be found 
with another educational, though non-academ- 
ic book. The Navy will be gaining an officer 
whose desire for excellence and professional 
ability will be an asset in any field.

"Heds" brought to Navy the competitive 
pirit and good common sense to survive Coach 
orzano's youth movement and the Engineer- 
ig Department's visits to the "SOUP." Ohio, 
'hilly 0. C. proved to distract and blur Mike's 
ision temporarily. With homes in Woosterj 
j-nold and Drury Lane, Mike was really never 
ar from home. The king of touch football can 
Iways be seen on Farragut winning us anoth- 
r keg of beer. Truly a unique and outstanding 
uy, Heds will always be remembered for his 
'it and for being one helluva guy. 


Better known to most of us as Higgs, Paul 
came to the glorious banks of the Severn from 
Masapequa Park, N. Y. During his first year at 
the Academy he devoted most of his time and 
energy to running Plebe track and PMW's. Al- 
though not considered a real slush Higgs was 
able to master the art of studying in the prone 
position as few have ever done. However, 
those that knew Paul well will probably best 
remember him for his weekly excursions to 
Jake's, (the favorite refreshment spot of all 
mids) and the spectacle that was always sure 
to follow. Whatever his service selection, 
Paul's warmth and friendliness will carry him 


"Fireplug," as he is known to the boys, has 
en a remarkable figure in 15th Company 
iring his stay at Bancroft. His interests in- 
ide everything from batt football to batt 
lircuts. Due to his outstanding performance 
|i first class cruise, Keith is planning a life in 
avy Air. Marriage is imminent upon gradua- 
Dn because, as he says, "Stumps and Fire- 
ugs have to stick together." If you ever need 
e Jew just listen for the distant sounds of 57 
nsecutive belches or look in the 7th Wing 
irber Shop, cause there he resides. 


Known by his close associates as "Drifty," 
Dave has consistently been a bright spot in the 
company, especially when fried chicken was on 
the menu. Dave never forgot his hometown of 
Hagerstown, Md. and a cute little thing named 
"P. J." Excelling in basketball and football, 
Dave still found adequate time to be a familiar 
member of the Sup's List even though he was 
slugging it out with the Aero Department. He 
is probably best known for the incredible feat 
of never having the experience of being fried 
with this natural "luck ' and his ever present 
abilities to tackle any job, he will make an out- 
standing contribution to whatever duty as- 
signment he receives — especially if it s his 
true love — an A-4 Skyhawk. 


In Paul's tenure at the Academy, he has con- 
antly amazed us with his vast knowledge of 
uper-cars," his surprising wit and his ability 
name the title of every popular song written 
ice the beginning of time. Always glad to 
Ip someone with his problems, Paul has 
mehow acquired the office as the company's 
sident psychiatrist. But, whenever he wasn't 
gained in these duties, he could be found 
irking on his Corvette or dividing his time 
mewhat equally, between his studies and his 
cial_ commitments. Paul, the quiet "Don 
an" was however, always, a hard and con- 
lentious worker, always helpful and always 
nsiderate. The Corps is gaining a great asset 
th Paul. 


An Air Force junior, Andy has found a new 
home in the Navy-Marine Corps team. Having 
weathered an extremely rough Plebe year, he 
knows what it is like to "bite the bullet." He 
was quick to show his ability with the rifle, 
culminating in his becoming the team captain 
in his Firstie year. His constant effort in the 
academic realm was one of his most pro- 
nounced traits, along with his burning desires 
to fly military aircraft. One of the most profes- 
sionally-minded men here at the Academy, 
Andy will definitely be a great asset to the ser- 
vice upon graduation.

Pete, otherwise (sometimes fondly) Itnown 
as Louie or Gramps, came here after having 
seen what the Navy was like. After many 
trying semesters he has learned to play a fast 
hand of bridge and is still here. Louie's gift of 
gab has made him a very amiable person to be 
around. After many years in the Navy, Pete 
has found the Corps more to his liking. 


"Scott the knot" comes to Navy from the 
Beach of the Kings in sunny southern Califor- 
nia. Scott has mastered the technique of study- 
ing by osmosis and can always sell his new 
unopened books at the end of the semester. He 
hails from the "hanger" down the 5th Wing 
shaft and can whip out a "Hermit Crab" term 
paper in a record three hours. Scotty never re- 
turns from his weekends knowing where he 
was or where he parked his little blue bullet. 
The King of Zonk has won the "Golden Z." 
award 4 years running. Discretion Deliman's 
ex-roommate is slated for a successful career

Answering to such descriptive names as 
"Boats" and "walking laundry bag" Chuck 
came to Canoe U. with one goal — to drive 
ships. His love for lacrosse carried through 
from his days at Baltimore Polytechnic Insti- 
tute to his standout performance in batt la- 
crosse. Although never considered a slash, 
Wiggs managed to bide his time between the 
wardroom and the books to make Sup's List 
when it counts. His love for the finer things in 
life and his close association with Budweiser 
breweries foretold his many afternoons. 
Locked in desperate combat with the Phys. Ed. 
Department, always a lady's man. Chuck could 
usually be found with one of the local yokels 
on his arm and his unblemished pin in his con 
locker. Despite his neurotic orbital tendencies 
Chuck proAiises to be a truly fine naval officer, 
with excellence easily attainable in whatever 
he tries.

Best words of wisdom in dealing with Bozo 
ave been "Don't mess with Bob.' During his 
)ur years at USNA, Bob's reputation as a 
ido expert, bench presser, and puncher out of 
assmates made him feared by all. But these 
ere not his only activities. Weekends found 
lis blue-eyed, brown-eyed mid trucking it 
ame to New Jersey in his shiny new Jag, to 
is hometown sweetheart. Academically he 
as no sloucher either. Despite numerous 
Durs in the rack and in front of the tube, Bob 
ill managed to maintain high grades in his 
olitical Science major. Although he has de- 
ded upon Navy line, one can be assured that 
ob will uphold the highest traditions of a true 

t in the fleet. 


Contrary to what most mids might think, 
Philo McGiffin is anything but dead. He lives 
one, and sure June of '68 has been present in 
the form of Douglas R. Roulstone. Rollie, as 
he's known, is a man with a abundance of 
pebbles. A true Jet, Rollie is probably best 
known for his famous bombing of watch squad 
inspection with several pounds of flour. Car- 
rier lanings in T-court and several treks to the 
top of Mahan Hall tower were just a few of 
Rollie's lesser accomplishments. On many af- 
ternoons one could find Rollie truckin' it out to 
St. John's for some well-earned, however 
unauthorized, town libs. One could certainly be 
safe in saying that Rollie was one of "Mother 
B's" original wild men. His determination and 
hearty enthusiasm will be an asset as Rollie 
enters his helo squadron and continues his 
habit of shaming women and rearing little 


John Otto Thoma came to the Naval Acade- 
y from Dallas, Texas. He had a heavy Texas 
«ent at the time and is noted for his singing 

The Goat is Old and Gnarly and pronounc- 
g Tecumseh. During his four years at the 
cademy, John maintained a high average in 
e somewhat difficult major of Physics. He is 
friendly host but quiet person who generally 
udied a lot in his room. Although not noted 
r his physical powers, he played on the com- 
iny soccer team for four years and can run a 
icent time in the mile. He is generally serious 
tout everything he does. He never really suf- 
red from lack of a date but he also had a lot 

girl related problems. 


A true Southerner, Mike came to the Acade- 
my from Cox High School in Virginia. Leaving 
his surfboard at the beach, he brought his nat- 
ural athletic ability and a lot of Naval know 
how and had little trouble making at Navy. 
The unsung authority on naval aviation gouge, 
Mike could expound and bore you for hours on 
aviation trivia. At Pensacola, Mike came face 
to face with airplanes and Sharon and he has 
been hooked on both ever since. A serious stu- 
dent study hour would find him buried in his 
books so that his time could be spent on long 
weekends. Mike's desire and talent should 
carry him a long way in the real Navy. 


John is a man of many abuses. Called Kirt 
his family, John and lizard lips by his 
ends. Jack and various other names by his 
emies, and Big Stud by his girl. He is noted 
ing a better than average arguer, a man of 
'ong convictions, a true friend and a lover of 
arts — swimming, flying, the Colts and 
ili but not necessarily in that order. Al- 
)ugh you never came near him during the 
Molate study hour, he has been known to 
ve had some good times — Army, the cot- 
fe, Sheraton Park and Ocean City. After 
and half years being pinned to Michele she 
ally admitted that she loved him as much as 
did. Well Kut you lose the vet but you gain 
pretty wife. Good luck John Welch and 
inks. I rank this man 2 of 27! 


Commonly known as Willy by his associates, 
this part Apache Indian is a product of 
Scottsdale, Arizona. After a year of near-mar- 
riage and NROTC at the University of New 
Mexico Willy found his true calling at USNA. 
Always with a desire to excel and a competi- 
tive spirit, Willy tackled a double major — 
Math and Computers, both well suited for his 
keen analytical mind. Some of his extracurri- 
cular included the Ski Club, Hunting Club and 
being a scuba instructor and a D.J. at WRNV 
where, during ACTRAMID, he engineered 
such productions as "The Uncle Judas Kiddie 
Show." Seen playing poker with the Executive 
Department on several occasions, his record 
stiU boasts stars — and of course, "Black N's." 
With a sincere sense of pride and professional- 
ism countered only by his sense of humor, 
Willy looks forward to a rewarding career "on 
board" IBM and with the squirt.

Being a Navy junior, Jon has lived through- 
out the nation but calls San Francisco his 
home. Upon completing high school, Jon left 
the ski slopes of sunny California for the ivy 
halls of Bullis Prep where he was an academic 
and athletic standout. A year later he reported 
to the Academy where he spent Plebe year 
dodging through the Hall in his skivvies and 
playing a strip of fried bacon. However, due to 
the fine qualities of his illustrious roommate, 
Jon sailed through his first year at Navy. 
Youngster year, with its new and exciting 
privileges, found the "Blue Whale" continu- 
ously on the town nursing a beer in one hand 
and a blonde with the other. Navy rugby found 
its way into our young hero's heart and he soon 
became famous for his "rip off his ear and bite 
him in the ankle tactics. Jon and his "Jag" 
will surely be a welcome addition to the 
beaches of Pensacola. 


Bill came to his long time dream straight 
from a Washington, D. C. high school. Plebe 
year showed him the meager rewards of disap- 
pearing in a crowd of mediocrity. When not on 
leave tracking down his "one and only," he di- 
vided his time between beating the academic 
department and avoiding trouble with the ex- 
ecutive department. Athletically, he broke up 
the four year routine with golf, swimming, 
handball, basketball, cross country, and tennis. 
His aptitude for running was established by 
many a close call while catching a bus back 
from D. C. He majored in Marine Engineering 
to find out what a Marine was. In this pursuit, 
he managed to stay on the Dean's List and de- 
cide that he didn't want to be a Marine. He as- 
pires to follow his father and grandfather up 
through the ranks, and then make some 
changes when he gets to the top. 


When "Chas" arrived at Canoe U. from his 
life long home of Tucson, Arizona, he brought 
with him a flair for the civilian way of doing 
things — which Navy never suppressed. With 
an affinity for basketball, girls and often the 
books, Chuck usually, although not always, 
managed to miss the administration's heavy 
hand of justice. Quick with a joke and a tooth- 
brush "Nellie" could always seem to find a sil- 
ver lining to any situation. Despite setbacks he 
managed to keep his grades quite high in 
Oceanography and is ready to give Nuclear 
Power a break before going down to Pensacola 
and his true love. When Cnas gets to the fleet 
the Navy will be better for his affable manner 
and devotion to work, no matter what his pur- 
suit be.

Howie came to the grey walls of Bancroft 
from the smoky heavens of a Pittsburgh blast 
furnace and soon distinguished himself as a 
versatile personality. After a stellar career in 
high school, varsity football took up much of 
his time during his stint at Navy. However, his 
greatest glory was perhaps on the poker table 
and dart board. The Bear was devastating 
with his last minute comebacks and golden 
arm. Although the stakes were high, he always 
kept his head and was rarely seen buying his 
own cokes. Never one to be extravagant, 
Howie constantly dreamed of owning the 
"Baermobile," a used VW that would carry 
him home on weekends and ^et 28 miles per 
gallon all the way. Academics never posed 
much of an obstacle, and a reserved spot was 
always available on the Sup's List. Having his 
own way of doing things, Howie was a compa- 
ny standout in all areas. No doubt, his ability 
to mix hard work and good times will carry 
him far in all endeavors. 


Bryant drifted in from the salt flats of 
Hutchinson, Kansas to compete with the 
world's finest. Destined to mediocrity, his frus- 
tration was in his not being noticed. Striving 
for attention. Bones shifted from a losing love 
affair to a complete devotion to wires. Snatch- 
ing every opportunity to gamble, money ap- 
peared to be an all encompassing motivation. 
With luck and an unearthly talent, he set out 
to deal his fortune. Undaunted, Bryant put his 
faith in the old axiom "Lucky in Cards, Lucky 
in Love." Helplessly attracted to modest fe- 
males. Bones is hopefully searching for anoth- 
er M. L. His combination of pride and determi- 
nation will make his presence in nuclear power 
felt in the fleet. 


"Coops," the last of the real Southern gen- 
lemen, makes his home in Richmond, Va. Al- 
ways good with the grades. Coops found his 
true love at USNA — the computer! Before 
the end of Youngster year he had become 
known as "the resident wizard of Bancroft 
Hall." Classmates came from miles around to 
watch the wizard plug black magic into his 
love and come up with answers that none other 
could match by any spell. Most folks wished 
they could get along as well with their girl. Be- 
fore long c3 became world renowned for the 
squid act, the commander, and playing "Green- 
sleeves" on a table leg. So C3 turned his talents 
to acting and had many roles in Masqueraders' 
productions. He says it kept him sane; to the 
disagreement of his classmates. As for sports, 
Coops lettered four years running in varsity 
rack. Clark hopes to go surface line (as if he 
had a choice), and being one of the greatest zoo 
men to come from 16, he's sure to be a fine ad- 
dition to the black show Navy. 


Douglas Earl Cosgrove came to the Naval 
Academy from Lansing, Michigan and the 
Academy has never been the same since. Doug 
has always been good with the ladies, but his 
good times were sometimes interrupted by 
long periods of marching. "Cos" never really 
studied much. He just roamed the halls during 
study hour, but every semester Cos seemed to 
pull the grade up to Sup's List potential. Cos 
was a member of the famed Sunday night club 
and when it came to playing cards and throw- 
ing darts he was unbeatable. More on the seri- 
ous side, Cos is a positive leader who is respect- 
ed by everyone. His magnetic and unique per- 
sonality will carry him successfully in life and 
in the Naval service. There's not enough room 
to tell of all Doug's escapades here at the 
Academy, but it's fitting to say that Doug's 
naval career, because of his uniqueness, will be 
exciting and successful. 


"Dense" earned his nickname shortly after 
he performed his notorious potato chip trick 
year, but he is anything but thaL. Coming from 
South Mecklenburg High with "sewer pipes" 
as his goal, he chose Physics as his major. John 
spent many an hour in mortal combat with the 
Physics Department but he always managed to 
come out on top. When he wasn't playing his 
slide rule he was playing his trumpet, bugle, or 
barber shears. He spent his afternoons playing 
with the D&B. his weekends with the Jay 
Gees, and his evenings in the barber shop. 
While not much on the football field, John 
couldn't be beat in the water. Though John set 
a record for forgetfulness, his professionalism 
and devotion to duty are his distinguishing 
characteristics, and he will be a welcome addi- 
tion to any wardroom. 


Rick, also known to his classmates as Fred, 
has had an illustrious career here at Navy. He 
has never really gotten along well with au- 
thority, but somehow he managed to keep out 
of major trouble. His grades were low, but his 
enthusiasm was always high. His unique abil- 
ity to think around any situation was often put 
to good use. His one great ambition here was 
to g7"aduate and become a pilot. Rick was al- 
ways busy and always had something to talk 
about with card games. The Hoocher, Bunny, 
surfing trips to the West Coast and Big Fred 
always on his mind. He was and is an outstand- 
ing leader as any Plebe under him can testify. 
His outgoing personality was a welcome addi- 
tion to any event or gathering. Rick is a man 
to be remembered, and anyone who knew him 
well is proud to count him as a friend.

The wayward son of a "30 year man," it ap- 
pears as though Jimmy was destined for ser- 
vice on the sea. He came straight to the Acade- 
my from the state of Washington, and brought 
with him varied interests, mixing academics, 
athletics, and women. Jim was one of the more 
intelligent members of Club 16. He was always 
on the Sup's List and Dean's List. Rumor has it 
that "Wacker" was always up so late at night 
so he could shine the stars on his uniform. Jim 
was also a "man of many talents" in sports. 
Being the "jock" he was, Jim was outstanding 
in basketball, football, scuba diving and swim- 
ming (to name a few) — he even took the mile 
run seriously! For some spooky reason, Jim 
was always superstitious about the number 
3000 — it sure is strange that that is the dis- 
tance between Annapolis and California, 
where one of those "varied interests" finds a 
place to reside. The progressive Navy has at- 
tracted Jim and after a few years of graduate 
studies he hopes to find a spot on the Sea Lab 


Born and raised in the highlands of Colora- 
do, and with the Air Force Academy just an 
hour from his home in Longmont, Dean made 
the long hard trek to Annapolis to give Navy 
all he had. And he's done exactly that and 
more. A standout in 150's, wrestling, company 
Softball, Brigade boxing, batt. weightliftin?, 
company soccer, and poker — there's not much 
Dean isn't good at — and that includes landing 
a native Colorado beauty named Vickie! 
Studying by night and sleeping by day it took 
Dean two years to become a steady on the 
Sup's List. Not long after graduation Dean 
will be driving grey Navy boats around with 
the same skill he would a sleek Jaguar coupe. 


"Mok" hails from Warren, Ohio and upon 
the conclusion of his high school career, de- 
cided to leave the Buckeye State and pursue 
the righteous life at US>fA. Upon arriving at 
the "Un-college" Mok was quick to realize that 
wherever there are 4,000 people, there are at 
least 3,000 "suckers," and where there are 
3,000 suckers, there is a profit to be had. As a 
result of his sound business practices, our hero 
soon accumulated a small fortune which was 
soon to be spent on such eccentricities as the 
"Friday night Club." He soon found himself 
bored with the Annapolis drudgeries of wine, 
women and weapons and decided to extend his 
talents to the ski slopes. However, "Jean 
Claude" spent most of his time either in the 
lodge on top of the bar, or trying to convince 
everyone that he was the "stunt man" for the 
Navy ski team. Even with many bruises and 
broken storm fences behind him, Mok is ready 
any time for a "Ski Weekend." He will surely 
be a welcome addition to the black shoe Navy.

Dave came to Navy from the high and dry 
[Twin Cities area of Minn. Deciding soon after 
his arrival here that the only way was the hard 
way, Quacker, weathered a tough Plebe year 
to come out on top of the company in academic 
performance. A real believer in the magical 
arts of Math, Thermodynamics and Wires, 
Dave has sorcered his way through the Physics 
Department and is putting all of his scholarly 
talents on the line with a Trident Project con- 
erning Cosmic Rays. Dave's achievements 
hon't stop at the books however, for he is also 
ictive in the choir and has made quite a name 
n the debate field, bringing several trophies 
lome to Navy. The weekends find Dave any- 
^fhere from Los Angeles to New York on trips 
with the debate team or the choir and he's 
Tl^een known to "play" just as hard as he works. 
The underwater Navy will indeed be thankful 
A'hen Dave graduates. 


Blasting in from Columbus, Georgia, Bill fit 
right in with the group of hogmen the Acade- 
my deemed to call '72 of 16th Company. Al- 
ways in the thick of things. Bill (or Guillier- 
mo), could be found tipping the bottle with the 
boys whenever a party arose. One of Bill's as- 
sets was that there was nothing wishy-washy 
about him; you always knew where you stood, 
much to the consternation of such stripers who 
have incurred his wrath. Bill did great aca- 
demically, always grabbing bennies from the 
Sup's List. While he left his great boxing abil- 
ity to such things as wall boxing and street 
fighting, Guilliermo was always performing 
well on the athletic field. After Quantico 
stopped his two year yearn to go Green, and 
Navy studying ruined his chance for air. Bill 
has little alternative but to "Drive for Five." 
Surface Line may not be able to stand up to his 
impact, but some ship's wardroom is going to 
be lucky enough to get a hell raising, great 
naval officer. 


Mike, known to his friends as "worthless," 
came to the Academy from an Army oriented 
home in Berkley, Missouri. After a fairly un- 
eventful Plebe year, Mike came back as a 
Youngster and set the all time worry record. 
He worried about everything from grades to 
girls (especially that blue-eyed blonde). But his 
all time record was set over a one year period 
from the 200 yard swim Youngster year until 
the 400 yard swim Second Class year. Mike set 
two other records: one for having the longest 
sideburns Youngster year and the other for 
being the longest standing member of the 
D&B Reserve. Meticulously organized and stu- 
dious, Mike earned himself a pair of stars 
Youngster year. He was very successful in his 
battles with Navy academics, though the Math 
Department and Math, his major, put up a 
dreadful fight. With his professional attitude 
and all around ability, Mike will enjoy a pros- 
perous career in whatever branch of the ser- 
vice he chooses. 


A by-product of Brooklyn Prep High School 
1 Brooklyn, N. Y., Mike grabbed at the chance 

further his education at the Severn River 
unday School. Mike brought with him a 
nique humor and a quick smile. Never known 
5 an enthusiastic studier, Mike found time to 
ursue a major in Foreign Affairs, between 
ips to the Academic Board. After two years 

Brigade boxing, Mike decided to demon- 
rate his prowess on the company and batt 
)orts levels; his major asset being strong de- 
irmination. The weekends could find Mike 
iltivating his refined taste in "a little more 
ine, my dear" or escorting one of his many 
«ady g^rl friends. Upon graduation Mike 
lans to see the world. With his easygoing atti- 
ide and knack for a good time Mike will sure- 
j be a welcome addition to the Corps. 


A true Arkansas Razorback, Tapper calls 
North Little Rock his home. After spending a 
year at Culver Prep in Indiana, Tommy de- 
cided to give Navy a try with his Southern 
comfortable way of life. Though Tap's inter- 
ests lie in many places, you can be sure that 
whatever he touches will come up golden. Al- 
though "he doesn't look like one,' Tommy has 
been an all star flanker on the football field 
and has shown his class on the links as one of 
the top golfers at Navy. His taste in women 
has led to many an exciting weekend and it is 
a rare occasion to find Tapper anywhere near 
the hall on Saturday night. But when the mood 
arises. Tommy will take the time to hit a book 
or two which explains his presence on the 
Sup's and Dean's Lists. Despite his golden 
hands in football, his silver clubs in golf, his ac- 
ademic stars, and the broken hearts of many a 
female. Tapper spent a lot of time with the 
boys of Club 16. Because of his amiable charac- 
ter, his philosophical and theological notions, 
and his Southern hospitality. Tommy is often 
called "The Preacher," and despite his Me- 
chanical Engineering major, he insists that his 
true calling lies in spiritual work. The Civil En- 
gineering Corps has Tommy for an exciting 
and rewarding career.

Ken hails from the thriving desert metropo- 
lis of Phoenix, Arizona. From the beginning of 
Plebe year Ken was destined to be a standout 
at Navy. He was starter on the Plebe summer 
baseball team, then Plebe football, and later, 
2/c and 1/c years. Ken was a standout for the 
3rd Batt Brigade champion football team. The 
Brigade boxing championships Plebe and 
Youngster years and on to Golden Gloves and 
AAU competition his last two years, is perhaps 
Ken's greatest athletic accomplishment. De- 
spite the many hours devoted to sports. Ken, 
frequently found himself on the Sup's List. 
Not desirmg to be a boat driver Ken plans to 
join the men in green upon graduation. 


"Seek" came to the Academy after spending 
his high school days in the suburbs of Philadel- 
phia and one year of prep school at Culver Mil- 
itary Academy in Indiana. With varied inter- 
ests in sports, Dave was often seen playing 
tennis or football when there wasn't a soccer 
ball at his feet. Sometimes known as "serious 
Seek," he always managed to obtain that elu- 
sive high QPR. Always on the Sup's List and 
on a few occasions, the Dean's List, "Seck's" 
major was in the realm of Aerospace Engi- 
neering. Academics and sports, however, 
weren't Dave's only interests. Seldom, if ever, 
did he pass up a chance to "party" and on 
weekends he majored in "dragging. ' (And for 
an unrevealed reason, much of Dave's leave 
during 2/c Year was spent in Miami). Being a 
Navy junior, Dave looks forward to graduate 
school at Princeton and the fleet. 


Swish came to the loving arms of "Mother 
B" from Amarillo, Texas. After his initial 
shock wore off, Allen had a fun-filled Plebe 
year with PC, Jeff and CC, who were amazed 
at his ability to run slower than a turtle. As a 
member of the varsity tennis team, Al has 
spent many hours of practice on the courts, but 
was rewarded for his efforts with an N*. 
Swish also made valuable contributions to the 
company fieldball and basketball teams. He 
has spent many free periods in a losing battle 
with the Pad Monster, and observes taps at 
10:30 every night; but has still managed to 
keep his QPR well above 2.0. On weekends, it 
was a rare occasion to find Swish without a 
date. After graduation, he plans to join the 
ranks of the Black Shoe Navy and his constant 
enthusiasm, easy-going manner and fun-loving 
attitude will be a welcome addition to any 
ship's wardroom.

Chuck had his origfin in Riverside, California 
and has since roamed the world as an Air 
Force brat. He is an enthusiast in all sports, 
particularly football, scuba, and "elbow bend- 
ing." "Schwals" has burnt his share of the mid- 
night oil while attempting to ward off "the 
board." His motto is "When I'm not near the 
girl I love, I love the girl I'm near." The most 
outstanding demonstration of this motto was 
during 2/c Summer when he was thrown in 
the brig for a panty raid on the Wave Barracks 
in Rhode Island. Upon graduation Chuck hopes 
to follow his father and brother up into the air. 
Determination and motivation, along with an 
already selected backseater, will help him to be 
a lifer. 


Fred, better known as "Chief" to his friends 
and other things by the Plebes, hails from 
Ohio, Rhode Island, New York City, Pennsyl- 
vania, Florida and Arlington, Va. Chief, the 
16th Company wine drinking champ, was the 
only one to run out of come-arounds Plebe 

(Summer. During this "free" time, he decided 
to assault the academic department as a Math 
major. His counselor was usually speechless at 
his success. To Fred, academics was a sidelight. 
iHis mind was usually on sports, sometimes 
athletics. His competitive spirit and ability 
made him an asset in company soccer, fast 
pitch Softball, and lightweight football. He 
also managed the Navy basketball team in his 
spare time, but could have coached. Girls are 
lokay in Chief's eyes, but a destroyer will get 
his heart. Fred's devotion to the Navy will 
make those who know him sleep much more 


"I'm never one to turn down a drink," you 
could always hear Bruce say. He never did ei- 
ther — until after the Annapolis Police De- 
partment fried him for 115 big ones. Scotty's 
from everywhere, being the direct descendant 
of a Zoomie, but he claims Okinawa because 
that's where all his fond memories lay. He is a 
great believer in the inner person rather than 
outer appearances. In fact, they are replacing 
the goat in front of Macdonough Hall with 
Scotty in those Navy "Tarzan" swimtrunks. 
While at USNA Scotty always strove for the 
stripe that's really important. He always made 
his way onto the Sup's and Dean's List while 
majoring in Ocean Engineering. Scotty's look- 
ing forward to "Nuke' School if the great Ad- 
miral will smile upon him. The submariners 
can look forward to having a great guy and 
fine officer join their ranks. 


The Academy lured Chuck all the way from 
Tacoma, Washington, where he was a high 
school football and track star. Going the route 
of many potential varsity jocks, Snowman 
soon became an intramural football all star 
end. The varsity track team still lists Chuck as 
a member and the afternoons of Spring set 
find him in the discus ring. With "the tube" 
and "the rack" a constant obstacle. Chuck and 
his slip stick found the going rough. After a 
slow start he has found a starting position on 
the 2.0 and coast squad. Chuck's longer periods 
of leave find him anywhere from California to 
Florida and with a water ski, a voluptuous 
blonde, and a little beer. Not entirely confident 
of his intestinal fortitude. Chuck will take his 
hitch as a black shoe hoping his sea duty will 
be on a barge moored to a stout pier. 


Rufe came rocking in from the tropical para- 
dise of Racine, Wisconsin. In high school he 
played varsity football, baseball, and wres- 
tling. While at the Academy he ran cross coun- 
try, wrestled, played batt and company foot- 
ball, basketball and softball. Harry's battle 
with the academic department was a long hard 
3ne. His Aeronautical Engineering major ac- 
:ounted for many long nights and sleepy days. 
He was rewarded though by making Dean's 
ind Sup's Lists. All was not work, by any 
•neans. "Rufe's" pleasant personality and sub- 
le wit made him fit perfectly with the zoo 
•ompany. His love life ranJted among the sta- 
)iest in the Brigade. Girls just seem to do a job 
)n him. The Navy will certainly benefit, when 
n the summer of '72, "Rufe," all of him, hits 
he fleet. 


"Boats" as he is sometimes referred to by his 
classmates, came to Canoe U. straight from 
the Mardi Gras of New Orleans where he was 
from a long line of "Southern Gentlemen" and 
"Cajun Queens." Maybe the Academy deprived 
him of his ritual attendance at the Mardi Gras 
but, never once did it deprive him of the fruits 
of that occasion — the food. With Joe's weekly 
chow packages the 16th company was never 
hungry. Joe was avid in practically all compa- 
ny sports as was shown by his ample share of 
bumps, bruises, and hangovers. Academically, 
his uncanny ability to skate without cracking a 
book mystified all. Not only does Joe take into 
the Fleet his keen ability to tie knots, but he 
also takes with him strong determination and 
stamina. As his friends and classmates we all 
look forward to serving with him in the com- 
ing years.

Dave, a Miami boy, has earned many friends 
and the respect of more here at the Academy 
with his congenial personality, quick smile and 
easygoing manner. In fact, Dave got along so 
well Plebe year with his Cuban learned man- 
ners he was known, and still is, affectionately 
as "Ogre." A standout on any athletic field, 
Dave was often known to astonish people by 
his ability to bench press. Although academics 
weren't a snap for Dave, he attacked them 
with a furor that others couldn't match and 
profited thereby. Dave lived with a flair once 
he left the Academy grounds and he is known 
to have said, "I demand of my women what I 
demand of my scotch." Although Dave is hop- 
ing for NPQ due to his many athletic wounds, 
he will probably settle down as a very success- 
ful Navy line man. 


Sam was a natural for the Academy coming 
from that illustrious Navy town, Bremerton, 
Washington. He has spent most of the past 4 
years in a small shell somewhere on the Sev- 
ern. This time was not spent in vain because he 
was the only varsity letterman in the company. 
When he wasn't on the river, he was in the 
rack. No one could ever understand how he 
could sleep at anytime (at all times) and still 
managed to make Sup's List. Andy's most 
noteworthy accomplishments were, first, his 
ability to watch football games and read a 
book at the same time, and of course the old 
"overcoat in the alley" trick. Eric's plans for 
the future are to pilot a hydrofoil (after he de- 
signs it out of tin foil with his USNA learned 
skills) and possibly enter the CEC. No one will 
ever forget that devious smile.

After wandering for eighteen years through 
;uch places as Georgia, Tennessee, Turkey, 
lapan, South Dakota, and California as an Air 
^orce dependent, Bob wandered into Bancroft 
-lall in June of 1968. Although a little quiet at 
irst, it was soon evident, from his accomplish- 
nents, academically and physically, that he 
)Ossessed a great deal of ambition and ability, 
-lowever, more noticeable than his achieve- 
nent was his unique sense of humor which 
;ould rescue his classmates from even the 
ieepest of depressions. His low. Penetrable 
augh which could be recognized anywhere, 
lever failed to start a chain of cnuckles. 
iVomen? None ever really tied him down, but 
f one eventually does, she'll have to have a 
(napsack on her back and a map of the world 
n her pocket because Bob's urge for travel and 
:razy experiences will carry him to many plac- 
is before he ever settles down. 


Blantz has developed a style of life rarely 
encountered today and certainly not at USNA. 
He started out his Navy career in this typical 
manner by skipping out of the high school 
awards presentation which was specifically de- 
signed to honor his acceptance by Canoe U. 
After his arrival from Walling^ord, Pa., can- 
nons were never safe and even signs soon 
began appearing in the company area as our 
cross country runner tested his night vision. 
His running we all feel was developed as a re- 
sult of his cnoice of flashy shorts. Sheer delight 
further developed his running ability as he as- 
sisted the underclass in PEP early in the morn- 
ing. Lover Boy's life was never dull, and he 
managed to arrive in D. C. in the most original 
manner, always returning our same old happy 
Bill though. A flash flood which caught Bill 
fumbling with his rain gear by the mate's desk 
almost washed him away, but he survived, 
shaken but unscathed. Complementing his de- 
sire to enjoy life, Bill was one of the most help- 
ful and considerate individuals. Never known 
to deny a friend who needed help. Bill spent 
many a night typing away for someone or 
driving them around or any of a number gen- 
erous acts. His human warmth and dedication 
will be appreciated by the Navy and those as- 
sociated with him after he pins on his Naval 
Aviation wings. 


Tom, the ski bum of 17th Company, even if 
he was from Oconomowoc, Wis. will probably 
be best remembered for his grades, double 
major, and his laugh. As one half of "the odd 
couple" Tom failed to be influenced by the so- 
briety of his roommate. Gouds is always ready 
for a party, whether a large gathermg or a 
more intimate affair. Tom is well known as the 
straight man, an enthusiastic sailor, an able 
singer, but a better story teller. He has a two 
track mind, but no one can figure out which 
track he's on. 


Tom brought his liberal philosophy, quick 
wit, and wild ideas from Texas. His family 
later moved to Phoenix, and by the time he 
left Phoenix the first time the airport was 
crowded with sobbing girls; mild-mannered, 
soft-spoken, Tom had struck again. Tom's 
ambition while at USNA was to spend as much 
money as he could. As long as he had a dime he 
never ran out. Although he didn't grace the 
pages of the Dean's List he was our dilettante. 
When he wasn't sleeping he was planning his 
next spree. Good times consisted of fast cars, 
flashy clothes and fancy women. Born to be a 
bachelor, he'll still have his American woman 
and three snotty-nosed kids. His quick smile 
and soft charm will make it hard for us to for- 
get him and will always provide him with a 
young lady. But under all that muscle and 
good looks there is a humanitarian's heart 
which will probably get him in trouble but 
keep the stars out of it.

Hud, 17th Company's man of the world, 
comes to us from a Navy family. Born in the 
Navy town of Newport, Rhode Island, Duke 
took a turn for the worse, but then again Ha- 
waii's loss is our gain. Weekends usually find 
Hud far out on the Chesapeake participating 
in his first love, sailing. If he has occupied him- 
self in other affairs however, he can surely be 
found in the shower on Sunday night. Known 
for his stimulating opinions concerning affairs 
d'amour and his propriety on dates, the g^rls 
soon realize Hangfire Huddleston's knowledge 
of meteorology with his display of "calm be- 
fore the storm." A vawl commander, Colin rep- 
resented the Naval Academy on the Bermuda 
Ocean race. His prowess in the sailing race was 
said to be matched though by those who should 
know as the end of this race found Colin cele- 
brating in true Academy style. Hud's unique- 
ness and adaptability should make him a wel- 
come member to the Nuclear Navy. Smooth 
Bailing Colin. 


Jay was the foreign national in our compa- 
ny, hot off the streets of south Chicago. 'The 
experience he learned in the streets back home 
kept him out of trouble here at Navy. His only 
weakness was beautiful women which would 
get him every time. Although not an academic 
slash his common sense kept him one step in 
front of the system. His money was spent on 
wild clothes and records. Well known as the 
"Jazz Man," Jay was an authority on the 
sounds of the time. Happiness to him was a 
fast motorcycle. Jay was a star on the intra- 
mural field and despite his many accomplish- 
ments he always remained humble. Definitely 
Marine Corps material, Jay will inspire his 
men with his good example and positive sense 
of leadership. Marine green also happens to 
match his eyes. Without a doubt he is not 
marrying material and as long as he's still 
breathing he'll continue his pursuit of happi- 
ness whomever she may be, at the time. 


The "Double Oog" should be familiar to all 
midshipmen for his "all electric influence." 
Coming to USNA from McMurray, Pennsylva- 
nia, Rich soon felt, then reproduced the vibra- 
tions of WRNV. The electric vibrations had 
great influence as seen by the countless times 
that 2162 was dialed in response to songs like 
Rubber Ducky. Great strength has been ap- 
plied to the heavy sounds on his show, and too 
little applied in P.T. Rich was known as one 
who would never turn down the pleas of a hun- 
gry classmate. Let it be known that the Double 
Oog is the only disc jockey that can give a 
news broadcast without thinking. And how 
about Timothy Leary — is he really related to 
that cow? The Oog's way with women and 
bright future can be expressed in one word —

Hailing from quiet North Reading, Mass., C. 
P. was hardly the consecutive New Englander. 
Establishing his "modus operandi" early Cliff 
drowned his remorse after viewing his first 
football loss to Army while building his own 
offensive and defensive squads. After achiev- 
ing sufficient training Cliff travelled exten- 
sively in the big league with the Glee Club 
from the klockety-klacks of Evansville to the 
ins and outs of Camelot. Not well known as a 
baseball player, Cliff joined the elite "four- 
baggers" in the finals: Memphis 4, Navy 0. 
Talented and with flair for fun, he performed 
admirably with the Musical Club's show. Striv- 
ing to present the greatest amount of realism 
Cliff looked his part. Destined to continue his 
tradition of "a girl in every port" Cliff will 
make a conscientious boat driver. 


Saul David left the women of cat's corner in 
sunny San Diego to follow in his father's foot- 
steps. His notable contributions to Academy 
life are many. His leadership was evidenced on 
the basketball court and his aggressiveness in 
his many love affairs. His wit and humor was 
a contributing factor to the success of "the 
George and David comedy team." Everybody 
was always surprised at his innate ability to 
make money. Saul just said it was the "luck of 
the Irish." Saul and Jack's room was the seat 
of wisdom. They both co-authored the book 
"How to Succeed Without Really Trying," and 
the theory that anything above a 2.0 is extra- 
neous. Because of his love of the sea Saul went 
on Youngster Cruise twice. The extra knowl- 
edge he gained will help him in the black shoe 
Navy. His easygoing nature earned him more 
spoons Plebe year than was kosher and a 
standing invitation to any party anywhere for 
anybody. His spare time is consumed making 
party tapes and his title as "king of the oldies 
but goodies" is still undisputed. 


Turning down swimming scholarships from 
all the major colleges and universities in the 
country, Bob decided to come to Navy, where 
his knowledge of the sea and his fish-like abili- 
ties could be put to practical and valuable use. 
Bobby was as loose as they come and "sweat- 
ed" nothing, which made him the perfect can- 
didate for Company Commander, a position he 
held all four years. His life can be summed up 
in three words, "Judy, Judy, Judy." Like love 
and marriage, you can't have one without the 
other, no Judy, no Bob, which is one reason 
Wart spent most of his four years at Navy in 
suspended animation. Judy willing, Bobby will 
become an outstanding Nuclear Power officer 
(he was on color boat 2/c summer). If he de- 
cides the Navy isn't the life for him, he has an 
open contract with Warner Brothers to do Ital- 
ian meatball commercials. 


Mark of Annapolis called many places home 
in the U.S. and Europe, but, his heart lies in 
Dixie. Coming to USNA from Cocoa Beach, 
Florida, Mark never did become accustomed to 
Maryland's nine months of winter but, some- 
how, managed to overcome it, defeating Plebe 
year, the 200 and 400 yard swims, and multi- 
media physics all in style. One of Mark's early 
claims to fame lies in the fact that he was one 
of only two mids to bring a Woopoo as his date 
to the Army party Plebe year. Fortunately, 
the romance was snort lived, and Mark began 
to occupy his time with a certain young lady 
from his hometown. Mark made a valuable 
contribution to the company teams, and even 
found an inbred urge to kill in the form of batt 
boxing. Never one to compromise his ideals, 
Mark is known as a true individualist and can 
be counted on as even a truer friend. With pho- 
tons and neutrinos in his eyes, Mark has set his 
sights on the Nuclear Power Program. 


Destined to be a Marine, even before joining 
us he hopped and skipped with a loin cloth 
around his thighs and feathers in his hair while 
teasing a rattlesnake held in his mouth. Un- 
willing to forget the Indians he joined the 
winged marvels and shouting "Geronimo," hit 
the silk. John's service selection was not irra- 
tional, however, for he chose the Marines with 
a purpose. The company, well aware of his 
problem, cheered as he successfully crossed the 
North Seas of the Severn on his way to the 
rifle range Plege year. Youngster cruise was 
too much though, and Lantz blew it before the 
launch ride to the ship was over. Meanwhile 
John maintained his immaculate locker, and 
formed a band of Judo trained followers to 
ward off any comments about his fuzzy wig. 
Trained and ready the Marines have done it

R. D. left the streets of Richboro, Pa. for a 
tour with the Navy. A natural student, he was 
the brain power in the company, and his light- 
ning speed and quick reflexes made him a ter- 
ror on the athletic field; but R. D. is better 
known for his suave and debonair ways in the 
social circles. The life of the party, R. D. is fa- 
mous for the dynamic impersonations of Ratso, 
the Vulture, the Fly and the Monkey, not to 
mention Liberace. His charm, his wit, and the 
sound of his guitar killed the ladies from Phoe- 
nix to Pensacola and from Texas to Pennsylva- 
nia. Of course, the high hopes of these girls 
ended in broken dreams. A future navigator in 
the fleet, R. D. exhibited his ability by travel- 
ing from Philadelphia to Phoenix via Florida, 
Virginia, and California; however, there is no 
question that his true future lies in bookkeep- 
ing. His acute mind can account for anything 
and everything, lent or spent. R. D. will find 
success in all that he does, with a little help 
from his friends. 


As the undisputed bearer of good will, 
warmth, and benevolence, Harry will always 
be remembered as the face on his classmates' 
voodoo dolls. Although his biting sarcasm and 
sharp wit were spread around for all, few of us 
were lucky enough to be exposed to his true 
personality. A man of sophisticated intellectu- 
alism and a student of philosophy, he never- 
theless managed to adapt himself to the men- 
tal standards required at Navy. The original 
romantic, Harry would never fail to devote his 
entire self to a female, for such extended peri- 
ods of time as 3-5 minutes. In his neverending 
crusade for women's liberation, he quite often 
managed to liberate them of everything, from 
hearts to pocketbooks; but none of them ever 
went away short-changed, because Harry al- 
ways lived his personal philosophy of "What 
you see is what you get!' As he rides off into 
America's westward sunset (in a galloping 
Porsche 911), Harry will undoubtedly achieve 
his high ambitions and make his contributions 
to society, at the same time avoiding his never- 
ending nightmare of the settled family man in 


K. L. rejected the wine and women of U. Va. 
for the unique (to say the least) life at Navy. 
An outdoorsman and avid water sportsman, he 
easily adpated to the marine environment and 
quickly decided on a tour with the destroyer 
team. Always expanding his athletic horizons, 
Kimber can often be found 50 feet underwat- 
er, riding the crest of a plunging wave, or glid- 
ing (or sliding, as the case may be) down a 
snow shrouded mountain. His sincere attitude 
made him an excellent candidate for a mul- 
tiyear term as Honor Rep, and his determina- 
tion to attain his objectives led to constant suc- 
cess. An individualist in political philosophy, 
Kimber never let academics (or spelling) stand 
in the way of learning, and thougn his difficult 
Chemistry major occupied many hours, K. L. 
continuea to cultivate his mind with respect to 
the arts through books, music, and black light. 
Upon graduation. Navy Air will receive a de- 
voted hard worker, as will the field of medi- 
cine someday in the future.

Arriving at Annapolis fresh from the moun- 
tains of Colorado, Mike was one man who 
never got used to level ground. Naturally 
squared away, no doubt due to his Western 
heritage, Mike was the only Plebe in the com- 
pany not dropped for a single pushup first set. 
He achieved fame early that same year by 
being the other of two helpless mids dragging 
kaydets to the company Army party. A wres- 
tler from way back, Mike found a new love in 
boxing and a perennial nemesis in PT swim- 
ming classes. He still found time to keep sever- 
al girls on the line, tour Europe, and listen to 
the latest in hard rock. Mike was never one to 
just try and get by, always putting his maxi- 
mum effort mto everything he did. Coupled 
with his own individualism and interest in oth- 
ers, evident to all who knew him well, he can 
only be a success at whatever he sets as his 


Son of a Baltimore cop, the stone face as- 
pires to make his mark in the field of Engi- 
neering. Having come from an Engineering 
kindergarten, grade school, and high school, 
Jim lives by the ideal that everything can be 
solved mathematically. If Jim ever fails as an 
engineer he can always turn to the field of 
plumbing. For it is a gifted young man who 
can turn a lifeless radiator into a gushing gey- 
ser and a poorly heated room into a sauna 
bath. Jim has only two loves in his life — his 
girl and his coffee. From both of which he re- 
ceives a great deal of warmth. With his sights 
set on CEC, Jim looks forward to many happy 
hours behind the controls of his very own 


Whiz has been noted for the refinement of 
an invaluable tactic; that of cramming a maxi- 
mum amount of fun into a minimum amount 
of time. Pressured for time even before he 
swore "I do," Steve had two days after gradu- 
ating from a Chappaqua, New York high 
school until he came to Crabtown. Having a 
Marine Corps Colonel for a father can't be to- 
tally without advantage, for Steve soon ad- 
justed to Academy life. He was so successful in 
fact that he was wearing a sword belt by 
Christmas church services, and made third 
class during Plebe year's dead week leave. One 
of the company's greatest lovers. Whiz can be 
found any weekend dragging his favorite chick 
or in front of a cloud of dust between Annapo- 
lis and Goucher College. Smoke follows him ev- 
erywhere for he times his farewells with the 
greatest precision. Notorious in the eyes of all 
the Plebes, he is admired by all his company 
mates. A true diplomat, he seeks to serve the 
Navy first in the air and then in world affairs. 
Dedicated to what causes he feels are just, 
Steve strives with determination, pride, and a 
well balanced sense of humor to complete the 
job as best he can. 


Sunny Italy may have lost one of its future 
leaders a century ago with the immigration of 
the Torellis to America, but USNA has been 
fortunate. Nic, commonly known as "da Wop," 
came to Annapolis from North Miami High 
School, where he excelled in everything he 
happened to undertake. This pattern followed 
him to the Academy where his enthusiasm, 
leadership, and reputation of being a "cotton- 
pickin' nice guy" has won him the respect and 
friendship of all who have been associated 
with him. Nic's natural ability as a football 
player was hampered by a series of knee in- 
juries, yet he managed to contribute a substan- 
tial effort to the battalion football and compa- 
ny fieldball teams. Never one to miss a night 
at Buzzy's eating pizza, popping corn on a Sat- 
urday night, or having a rigatoni dinner at No- 
vella s, Nic still had time to make the Dean's 
List and receive his well deserved stars. Over- 
coming a slight color blindness, Nic has or- 
dered full ahead on Nuclear Power program, 
where his attributes, he will undoubtedly excel 
in all aspects.

Randy, being from a Navy family, has lived 
across the country and overseas, but his home 
base is in Coronado, California. After a suc- 
cessful high school athletic career, the Randy 
attended Columbian Prep School for a year be- 
fore entering the Academy, as a basketball re- 
cruit. Being a member of both the Plebe bas- 
ketball and baseball teams. Randy quickly be- 
came well known. Pre-game festivities in Phil- 
ly Plebe year and post-game activities all 
brought attention to him. Randy always can be 
seen on weekends with Gwyn, his high school 
sweetheart and now fiancee, boltin' in the Coy- 
ote. Whether helping in intramural sports or 
participating in a. Corse get together, Randy 
can always be counted on to throw everything 
he has into it. Planning on giving Navy Line a 
run for its money, it's sure that Randy will do 
as well there as he has while at the Academy. 
While in the Navy, Randy is sure to make a 
multitude of friends. 


The "Cid" came to Navy from a dependents' 
school in sunny Rota, Spain where it soon be- 
came obvious that he had enjoyed two years of 
European life and received a well-rounded but 
not necessarily intensive education. As one 
prone to the lighter facets of life, Craig was ei- 
ther pursuing his goal as the ultimate comedi- 
an or letting his mind flow with effortless 
dreams. But when he was not at complete lei- 
sure the "Cid" devoted parts of his time to 
lending a voice to the Antiphonal Choir, oper- 
ating his light and sound system, driving his 
car, and occupying his pad, aside from making 
futile efforts at academics. Infatuated with 
many of the fairer sex but never hooked, he al- 
ways had an eye open — ever on the alert. 
Craig's lively personality coupled with his en- 
thusiasm and energy will certainly be an asset 
to him with his career in the Navy. 


From the heart of Connecticut and a Navy 
background emerged a "Witty Indian" with a 
friendliness about him and goal before him, 
ready to make his mark at Navy. With his Dad 
out of '47 and his brother in '70, Navy life was 
no stranger to Tom. Thus, knowing what lay 
ahead, Tom jumped head first into Plebe Year. 
However, not having looked before he leaped, 
Fos found himself with '72's first "Black N." 
Tom excelled in sports however, as he was a 
natural athletic competitor, and this born in 
ability often brought him MVP in company 
sports. Unfortunately for Navy, Tom never 
found enough time for varsity sports. His free 
time was devoted to the rack and/or the fairer 
sex. Tom's flair for females, constant rowdi- 
ness, and "thirst" for Corse parties often kept 
him away from his studies. In fact anything 
could keep Fos from his studies, but not from 
his goal, "his Navy ring and his desire to serve 
his country."

Chris upon graduation from Norfolk Acade- 
my followed in his father's and older brother's 
footsteps and entered the Academy. In a short 
time, the Mags taught him to loosen up and to 
search for grins at every opportunity. He has 
learned to worship the "God of 2.0" to its logi- 
cal conclusion, graduation in June. Always, a 
lively addition to the Corse parties, the "Red 
Vulture" could be counted to bring his favorite 
friends, the turtle and the fish. Chateau made 
the dash to Norfolk at every chance to visit the 
legendary Nancy. Chris gave up a promising 
athletic career in basketball and track to en- 
hance the company intramural teams and his 
own rack time. Wherever Chris' sore hip and 
color blindness leads him, he can be counted on 
to do an outstanding job and obtain many last- 
ing friendships, as well as always be loving it. 


The 186 Marching Men of Michigan became 
185 when Fred left the Ann Arbor campus to 
continue his collegiate career here on the Sev- 
ern. Not wishing to give up all of his musical 
interests, Fred became active in the D&B, 
Chapel Choir, and the Glee Club. "Boats" could 
always be counted on to bring back some 
goodies for his roommates from his Glee Club 
trips. Academics were never much of a chal- 
lenge to Fred, with the exception of math. He 
is probably the first and only mid in history to 
take the same Calculus course three times. 
Nevertheless, his undying professionalism and 
wit made him easygoing and well respected by 
all who knew him. It looks like surface line 
after graduation and the ships of the fleet will 
be grateful for his fine officer qualities. 


As an Armv brat, Chuck came to the Acade- 
my straight from high school in Fairfax, Vir- 
ginia. From the start he set out with his best 
efforts to have an enjoyable stay. Always one 
to take advantage of the situation, he man- 
aged to maintain a casual approach to Plebe 
year. Probably best remembered Plebe sum- 
mer for his occasional visits to the cemetery on 
weekends. After having received appropriate 
indoctrination from the "Mags" (his firsties). 
Chuck was ready for nothing less than an ac- 
tion packed Youngster year. It took t\Vo years, 
one cold pizza, and an intimate acquaintance 
with 4-1 to finally get him to succumb to the 
Navy's way of doing their things. Second Class 
year found Chuck battling with the infamous 
Academic Department. Somehow he managed 
to stumble onto the Dean's List occasionally. 
His ability to make friends easily will no doubt 
serve him well in whatever he chooses to do. 


Dino, affectionately called Dirtball, was 
quick to make his name known at Navy. Dean, 
who has the dubious distinction of having to 
block four All-Americans in one season, be- 
came one of 18's first to earn a Varsity N 
Youngster year. Although fighting a continual 
battle between books and the "tube," Dean 
still managed to maintain a 3.5 throughout his 
4 years. Almost any evening could find Dean 
giving EI or readmg Science Fiction mags. 
Unable to hide his charm and magnetism any 
longer, he succumbed to the wiles of a home- 
town "townie" and found himself pinned. A 
welcome addition at any party Dino could usu- 
ally be found late that evening posting the 7th 
Wmg tennis court watch. Second and first 
class year Dean devoted his athletic talents 
and spirited nature to the sport of rugby. Des- 
tined to serve King Neptune, Dino will be 
found patrolling the depths of the oceans of 
the world at graduation. His quick mind and 
hard working attitude will make Dean an asset 
wherever he goes. 


Joey came to us from the Island after at- 
I tending Glen Cove High and NAPS. With 
spikes m hand and ambition in his heart he ar- 
Inved ready to make his mark at Navy. It 
I didn't take long to prove himself, as early in 
I his first year he set the Plebe cross country 
[record. Smce then he has gone on to win the 
Icoveted N*. Throughout his four year stay 
' Joey has always been a three season varsity 
athlete and therefore has found the 2.0 slot his 
place in the academic world. However all of 
Joey's interests aren't on the same track. On 
rainy weekends "Sharp" has, found indoor 
sports with the fairer sex just as fun and 
sometimes even more rewarding. Though in 
' this event Joey needs IRtle practice as his 
charm, good looks and friendliness make him a 
sure winner. Due to Joe's natural ability to 
lead and get along well with others he will un- 
doubtedly do well in whatever he may do after 


From the moment Jeff stumbled into 
"Mother B," he knew he was born Navy. Trad- 
ing the lazy atmosphere of Winnetkat, Illinois 
for the often hectic one of USNA, he found the 
transition both enlightening and easy. When 
not sailing varsity, struggling to stay on Supt's 
List or sleeping, you'd almost always find him 
hurriedly trying to find a suitable weekend 
drag. A staunch supporter of the "blitzkreig," 
he spent many a weekend on the "circle" test- 
ing new techniques. Being a member of the 
Corse, he was a regular at their Saturday 
night club meetings. Among other things, Jeff 
was noted for his hair and the rumor that he 
had never found his way to an Academy bar- 
ber chair. His carefree yet dedicated attitude 
should make him a valuable attribute to the 
Line force.

Hailing from Torrance, California, Skip 
made his mark early upon arriving on the 
Navy scene. A stellar high school athlete, 
"Merv," a football recruit, decided instead to 
concentrate on baseball. Here he has met with 
great success becoming an N* winner and one 
of Navy's best hitters. With athletics, good 
grades, and the fact that he is one of the best 
liked members of 18, it is easy to see how Skip 
became our man on 4-1. As a much harassed 
Brigade Adjutant, "Hoguer" missed 7-3 and 
many class hours during the academic year. As 
West Torrance's best looking beau. Skip con- 
tinued his lothario's reputation on the East 
Coast. Seen with, his 'vette and a lovely lady. 
Skip is always ready for a great weekend. 
Skip's service selection is still unknown. Come 
November 17, he will probably pick his lifelong 
task the way he picks his women, good looking 
and easy. However, with his ambition, good 
nature and entrepreneuring ability. Skip 
should make it in a big way. 


Russ came to the shores of the Severn from 
sunny Downey, California. His physical devel- 
opment soon became the interest of many up- 
perclassmen. Fleet of foot, McCURDS was 
seen at every "Carp's personal come-around," 
"Spar's laugn-in," and "Dow's PMW." A Phys- 
ics major found "Capt. Queeg" numerous 
bouts with academics and he could often be 
found pushing pencil and slide-rule far into the 
night. The call of the salt air found Russ on the 
bridge of a YP looking across aspiring horizons 
to nuclear power school. Infrequent were his 
loves, but those who were, were worth the 
wait. Hark, me thinks me hears Prince Russ 
setting sail for the Med . . . Venice, Athens, 
Florence, the Louvre . . . may ye become King 
of the Seas, or at least Admiral. 


Ed spent a year at the University of Texas 
before coming to the Academy. He was not 
really prepared for Plebe Year but his attitude 
helped him become familiar with many upper- 
classmen. Ed's rapport with his seniors made 
him one of the more popular Plebes and he 
seemed to be the center of attention. As a re- 
sult of this close attention, Plebe Year left 
many memories. With the start of Youngster 
year, Ed came back ready for a new beginning 
only to find that the ground rules had not 
changed. Ed took a close interest in the new 
Plebes and it was not unusual to see him coun- 
selling them. One night before the Army 
game, he and several classmates took several 
hundred Plebes on an expedition. For this es- 
capade he was given an "N" and a map show- 
ing the way to 4-1. Never one to remain seri- 
ous, Ed's grades have run the spectrum and 
defy prediction, Ed is known for his Navy spir- 
it. However, he may have pushed too hard 
while trying to stir up some enthusiasm in one 
particular Plebe, but that is another matter. 
Meanwhile, Ed is looking forward to gradua- 
tion and still somewhat puzzled by the term 
"service selection."

Having made the long trek to Navy from 
that center of culture, College Park, Md., 
Hank was to make it home at every opportuni- 
ty. After winning three "Black N s ' Plebe 
Year, (one for himself and one each for two 
deserving second class), he was to step out of 
hot water to stay. An avowed Political Science 
major. Hank had no use for "Courses with 
numbers," and foresook a promising running 
career as "too much like work." Known for his 
empty mailbox and lonelv weekends, when 
Hank had a date, she could usually be termed 
"outstanding." Graduation will find Hank, 
along with the rest of us, in the surface fleet. 
He has his eyes set on Flag rank, and should he 
make it within a reasonable amount of time, 
say five years, it could be a career for Hank. 
Wherever he goes. Hank's smilin' face and 
easy disposition will always make him 


Coming to Annapolis from Rochester, New 
York, Paul now claims his permanent resi- 
dence in the ever present sunshine of Orlando, 
Florida. Having one of the Navy's more ac- 
complished officers for a father proved to be 
quite helpful to P. S. in finding out what the 
Navy was all about. Upon making the big "A" 
his first choice, Paul lunged into the deep blue 
wholeheartedly and with big ambitions. Hav- 
ing made a major in Aero his academic goal 
and cross country his sport, he was quick to ac- 
quire three stars by Youngster year; two from 
the Dean and one from Army. "Sweat" was 
quick to test the integrity of his company offi- 
cer by sending him shopping for a new car dur- 
ing 2/c year. Having survived that minor dis- 
aster Paul has set his sights on Naval aviation 
and possibly a little P.G. school. His hard work 
and determination should prove invaluable in 
the years to come. 


From Madisonville, Tennessee, Frank came 
to the Naval Academy after spending a year at 
NAPS bringing his SAT English Composition 
and Verbal scores up to acceptable levels. 
Aware of this difficulty he avoided the "Bull" 
Department as much as possible. Known for 
studying the back of his eyelids as much as his 
books, Frank never let his academics interfere 
with his ECA's. Getting a taste of the Chesa- 
peake Bay early in Plebe year he worked stea- 
dily in the YP Squadron and won his command 
qualification in the Spring of his Youngster 
Year. With this valuable experience it looks 
like Frank will be going Surface Line, with the 
rest of us. 


Tom hails from Riverdale, Illinois, where he 
ran at halfback for Thornton Township High 
School. He came to us from Bullis Prep after 
being recruited for football. Though he chose 
not to play varsity ball he was feared on the 
intramural field. Off the field Tom is an easy- 
going type of guy accounting for his many 
iriends. He definitely does have a second strike 
capability, however. His presence added a new 
dimension to the brighter side here. The spirit 
of the company wouldn't be the same without 
our own "John Wayne, Elvis Presley, and Mar- 
lon Brando." Wherever graduation day finds 
him headed, Tom can be counted on to get the 
job done. 


Wally came to the great metropolis of An- 
napolis by way of another metropolis, Chicago, 
Ilhnois. An all-around high school athlete, 
Wally participated in football, track, and wres- 
tling, the latter being his favorite sport here. 
He continued in wrestling by participating in 
battalion wrestling. Academics have never 
been a problem for Wally, being a consistent 
member of the Sup's List, while carrying a 
major in Electrical Engineering. Wally could 
usually be found up late at night studying or 
helping classmates with academic problems. A 
rather quiet but a very sincere and likeable 
person, Wally can be counted on to give his 
best effort in anything he does. He will be a 
credit to whatever branch of the Navy he

When Billy first got to Navy there was some 
speculation about his performance since he 
came from Edsel Ford High School. This spec- 
ulation was soon turned into awe as he started 
hitting the books. After a slow start the first 
semester of Plebe Year, 3.6 QPR, he went on a 
wild start of 4.0's which placed him very high 
in class standing. The only obstacle that pro- 
vided a difficult time was swimming; but with 
a little effort he overcame that problem. Plebe 
Year was taken in stride with the exception of 
early August of Plebe Summer when Bill took 
it on the chin literally, playing soccer. With his 
broken jaw, he had fun mumbling to Mom and 
Dad through his wired up mouth Parents' 
Weekend. About the biggest Christmas of his 
life was that of Plebe Year. That is when he 
first got together with Mary. Ever since then 
they have been inseparable. When he was not 
studying, he was writing a letter or making a 
trip to tne phones. After graduation, his brams 
coupled with a great wife will give the Navy 
an outstanding officer. 


Known as "Smitty" to his classmates and 
the "Rat" to his teammates, Gary hails from 
Ewa Beach, Hawaii where the sun, sand and 
surf beckon for his return. Gary was not 
known for his academic prowess, but what he 
lacked in academics was made up in the swim- 
ming pool. One only had to look in the Natato- 
rium any day during the week and you would 
see this stocky red-headed kid swimming many 
laps. He was a dedicated swimmer, and an N* 
wmner, whose proudest moment at Navy was 
to contribute to Navy's first win over Army in 
eight years. Gary's interests, water polo, surf- 
ing, and body surfing, only helped to water log 
him more. Besides swimming, he was dedicat- 
ed to the proposition of graduating, which at 
times seemed an impKJSsible goal. But through 
many hours of study, he finally reached his ob- 
jective. At graduation you will find Gary head- 
ing to sea with the rest of his classmates but 
his real intent is to serve the Navy the best 
way he knows how, as a member of a 
Marine Corps team. 


Transferring from the St. John's University 
campus in New York to the campus on the 
Severn was a big step for Al — and TGIF's for 
Wednesday parades is a helluva trade to make, 
too. But no sacrifices are too great for the pro- 
fessionally oriented 'navel' officer. Al could 
usually be seen sans date on the weekends, but 
whoever he happens to be dragging in June 
Week of '72 will very likely find herself the 
new Mrs. Szigety. Tne Engineering Depart- 
ment was a challenge to Al, but he never let 
his grades fall much below the 3.8 mark. His 
friendly manner and hard working spirit 
earned him the respect and friendship of many 
mids, and Nuclear Power gets him after grad- 
uation it will be gaining one of the most deter- 
mined junior officers the Academy has pro-

Glenn came to Navy with a record as a lead- 
er in the classroom and on the football field; he 
carried that record into Plebe Year as Fourth 
Class Regimental Commander during Plebe 
Summer and as a ready friend to help every- 
one out of trouble throughout the year. The 
smiling man from Willingboro, N. J., has been 
quite a conscientious guy all during his stay at 
Navy. When he's not out sailing or playing B- 
ball, it's a cinch he'll be in the rack or "trying" 
to do some work. Never one to let FT or a girl- 
less weekend get him down, Glenn has still had 
his ups and downs with girls and the pull-up 
bar (mostly downs). Come graduation time 
though, odds are Glenn will have that girl, and 
the Navy will have a fine officer in the person 
of Glenn Reitinger. 


Bill, more commonly known as "Bubba" 
came to the waiting arms of "Mother B" 
straight from Colonie Central High School in 
Albany, New York. Plebe Summer couldn't 
quite find "Hideway" but the return of the 
Brigade and the "Mags" quickly brought him 
'around.' On a fall afternoon you would always 
find him playing soccer, be it Plebe, JV or com- 
pany. Bubba's talents were also felt on the 
company fieldball, football, and baseball 
teams. Never one to sweat the academic de- 
partment. Bill always managed to be a shade 
above 2.0 and away from the "Ac Board." 
After spending a couple of years in the fleet, 
this industrious leader will be a welcome addi- 
tion to whichever branch of the Navy he de- 
cides to enter. 


Looking for a challenge Bruce came to An- 
napolis where he majored in Political Science 
and pursued an avid interest in sailing, soccer, 
handball, and blind dates. As a Plebe duty bu- 
rler, he is known to have gone from skivvies to 
service Dress, Blue and from 7th Wing to "T" 
Court in a record 4 minutes to fill in at a colors 
ceremony. A hard worker and an incurable op- 
timist, Bruce thrives on challenges. He's a ded- 
icated midshipman and he will head for the 
fleet after graduation where he can be counted 
on to put forth his best effort. 


Not one to let academics control his life (in 
fact, for as long as he could hold out, not one to 
let academics even enter his life), Blake was 
more inclined to pursue the lighter facets of 
Academy life. It was not uncommon for him to 
be seen on the White Tornado any Saturday 
afternoon on West Street during the spring of 
Youngster Year. An enthusiastic athlete, 
Blake contributed greatly to battalion squash, 
quarterbacked his batt football team to the 
Brigade Championship 2/c year, and played 
quarterback for the 150# mighty mites, 1/c 
year. Always a defender of Texas in every as- 
pect, especially football, Texas pulled through 
for his finances many times from disaster. 
Sometimes known as "The Snake," it was not 
uncommon for anyone to miss introducing 
their girls to Tex for fear they might never see 
them again; however, he maintains to this day 
that he was not as bad as was widely rumored. 


"WAV II," the Academy's own Vova, was 
imported from the foggy city of San Francisco 
in the sunny state of California. Sophisticated 
and sensitive, as a Plebe he showed his gour- 
met tastes to everyone by being the only mem- 
ber of his class to volunteer to eat that rare 
Bulgravian delicacy, a grey rat. Later on he 
followed through by discovering the essential 
quality in fine stereo music at USNA: volume. 
In settling down for the four year stretch be- 
hind the walls, he determined the formula for 
happiness at "Mother B" to be "weekends, 
sounds and a Russian Area Studies major 
(with six semesters validated)." He was often 
in the natatorium for batt swimming, scuba, 
and water polo, but never for a P.E. class. The 
rest of his time was spent fighting the books, 
the pad monster and explaining wTiy the LOG 
always got to the company late. 


Larry came to Canoe U. from the beautiful 
state of Oregon. Shot down by another good 
Navy deal, he decided that Marine Corps is 
mighty fine, at least for five years. Active in 
all types of sports at Marshall High in Port- 
land, ne settled down Plebe Year into the seat 
of a crew shell, and with a determined effort 
won himself Plebe numerals. His enthusiasm 
for the next three years turned to squash as he 
became one of the finest players in the Bri- 
gade. Any afternoon you could find him hard 
at work \n the courts or in the weight room 
pumping iron. As if destined to maintain rigid 
military bearing all four years, it was right 
after the firsties got finished with him Plebe 
year that the Dental Department took over 
bracing him up. A true wit, you could always 
depend on him for a laugh, but when it comes 
down to a career motivation he's as serious as 
can be.

Mike, better known as either "Gumby," 
"Crash" "Mash," or "Asher," has cheerily 
haunted the hallowed and sacred halls of Ban- 
croft since his day of induction. In his own elfy 
way he has wrangled his way into the hearts of 
his classmates. Known to the "clique" as "Ish- 
mael," his vibrant strumming could be heard 
in the 4th Wing during any said study hour. If 
not attached to his guitar (Floyd) he could be 
identified strolling through the halls emitting 
an ear-piercing "Mom!!" Hailing from Renton, 
Washington, Mike was state champ in gym- 
nastics during his' high school years. Carrying 
on his skills m the gym at Navy, he has ex- 
celled as a varsity gymnast. Mike looks for- 
ward to the day when he can become a full- 
fledged 00 D on the bridge of a destroyer. 


Pete, ("Legs" to his friends), came to USNA 
immediately from high school in York, Penn- 
sylvania. After eleven years of competitive 
swimming, including a place on the Plebe 
team, Pete turned to intramurals. Pete has 
built quite a reputation as the love 'em and 
leave em type, and usually could be found 
checking out Huzzy's for female members of 
the local populace. To date, however, none has 
managed to capture his interest for any length 
of time. An Ocean Engineering major, Pete's 
determination has helped him to a place on the 
Sup's List and should stand him in good stead 
throughout his time in the Navy. 


Scott was born in Long Island but was soon 
transferred to Bethesda, Maryland where he 
was raised. One of Scott's early achievements 
was runner-up in the "Mr. BS ' contest at his 
high school. But is is rumored that after four 
years of hard work on his "glib tongue," Scott 
is ready for a rematch. Livmg so close to the 
Academy has its good and bad points. "Cant- 
fil's Home for Wayward Mids" has become a 
popular haven during leave periods. This is 
very good for those of us who have enjoyed its 
warm atmosphere. Scott is planning on mak- 
ing Navy Air his specialty after graduation. It 
can only be speculated what ef^ct Scott will 
have on the wardroom, but it will no doubt be 
exciting for all involved.

Jean-Pierre came to the Academy after 
three years as an air crewman, and in his first 
two years proved himself as the finest of varsi- 
ty academic board men. Money in the company 
area seemed to flow into his room (and out the 
next weekend) as haircuts, bike caps, corfam 
shoes, stationery, wine flasks, t-shirts, etc., 
etc., etc. flowed out. Pierre's advice on wine, 
women and song was much sought after by his 
less experienced classmates, and his B.S. 
served many a mid in good stead. Those who 
knew him well can vouch that few people 
wanted to be an officer and pilot more than 


"Baff" came to our infamous Canoe U from 
Alliance, a small town in the land of the 
buckeyes. He quickly made the change over to 
the more relaxed routine of Navy life and 
began his career in sports playing lax. The be- 
ginning of ac year and the yearning for "a 
more challenging sport" took Baff to Hubbard 
Hall where he spent many an afternoon 
playing crew jock. He managed three N's 
while at Navy (2 black and a gold). Majoring in 
extracurricular activities and parametrics kept 
him for the most part out of trouble (?), and 
left him with just enough spare time to keep 
above a 3.0 in his formal education in Oceanog- 
raphy. He had uncanny (or was it unfortunate) 
luck with a long line of blind dates and those 
scotch and root beers! Baff is still looking for 
that special someone and plans on joining up 
with those men who drive the greyhounds of 
the sea. 


Bob came to the Academy from Minneapolis, 
Minnesota. Before coming to the Academy he 
had already begun his naval career as a reserv- 
ist. Bob was the quiet little ^uy that almost 
got through Plebe summer without being no- 
ticed. He also is one of those rare specimens of 
intellectualism that hung in there to the finish 
with his "double E" major. Despite his busy 
schedule and seemingly constant study he 
managed to always find time for the fairer sex 
and a weekend in D. C, skiing, etc. — even 
though he still liked to consider himself a con- 
firmed bachelor — for a while anyway. He en- 
joys competition in any field, but especially 
sports, as he is an excellent swimmer, tennis 
player, and skiier. Many weekends he was seen 
leaving with his poles and skis and heading for 
the snowy hills. With a friendliness and deter- 
mination like no other, he heads toward the 
"mighty fine, surface line," and we wish him 
fair sailing in all that he endeavors. 


Allen Burdette, more commonly known as 
"Lewis the Lush," a title which he has faith- 
fully earned over his four year stay at USNA, 
came to this distinguished place of higher 
learning from a small town in eastern Texas. 
He quickly established his goal of making 
USNA "the party school of the East" — so 
much for Lewie's habits. Allen also collected a 
Black "N" 2/c Summer in one of his battles 
with the admin department for unlimited cuts 
at USNA. 


Guy was from upstat« New York, but has 
lived most of his life in California. He came to 
the academy directly from high school and 
played a little football and wrestled awhile, till 
nis heart turned to his true love — a rumpled 
rack. His passions are VO and a certain young 
lady who will become a Mrs. on graduation 
day. Guy plans to fly when the class of 72 gets 
to the real Navy. 


Perhaps it was in the hilly Wisconsin coun- 
tryside where he grew up that Bob first real- 
ized his great love for adventure and the out- 
doors. However, soon after changing addresses 
from the lakes of Wisconsin to the banks of the 
Severn, Bob found that the adventure he was 
looking for no longer consisted of hunting and 
fishing, but of Wed. night libs and frequent 
trips to D. C. and Baltimore. As an underclass 
he learned his lessons well, however, for re- 
striction was never a way of life for him. Bob 
will never be remembered for throwing 
pennies at Tecumseh with anything less than a 
smirk on his face. Bob really preferred the sat- 
isfaction that is attainable only through the in- 
dividual efforts needed to conquer a ski slope. 
Perhaps that is why, after graduation. Bob 
will enter law school.

Tom, an Irishman from Boston, came to the 
Naval Academy and immediately made his 
presence known. His heart belonged to track 
and he signed up to be manager of the track 
and cross country teams. "T. J." has never 
been without goals, one of which was to be a 
triple-N star letter winner as a manager. 
Whether or not he succumbs to marriage will 
depend on how much he learned in track. Early 
in the game, Tom discovered that it was his lot 
in life to run into walls, so he has set his sights 
on becoming the gungiest Supply Corps-type 
in the Navy. If T.'J. can swing it however, he 
wants to become OOD qualified on everything 
that floats. Tom's energy, wit, assure us that 
and guarantee his success and will make a sig- 
nificant contribution to the Navy's future. 


Fred came to Navy one step ahead of the 
game fresh out of a private school in the Mid- 
west, thumbing his nose at the executive de- 
partment as early as Plebe summer. Applying 
himself diligently, he could most often be 
found meditating in his rack or brushing up on 
his rifle manual over the weekend. In his few 
free moments, Fred could be heard discussing 
the advantages of Navy Air, or fulfilling his 
duties as President of the USNA Packer Fan 
Club. Fred had a serious side too. He took in- 
terest and pride in the professional aspects of 
the academy and the Navy. These qualities, 
along with his competitive spirit, will undoubt- 
edly carry over into his service with the air 
arm to make him an exceptional officer. 


Bill Knight, more formally known as Canee 
jet, comes from nowhere, known as Winne- 
mukka, Nevada. Mr. Knight is one of the most 
likable people (?) I have ever met, if you over- 
look his many faults. He is a very responsible, 
very studious, very handsome, very brave and 
very gregarious person. Canee jet claims to 
never have been given any responsibilities as a 
mid. To never breaking a 2.50, to always hav- 
ing his upperclass grease him uncooperative, 
and to having paid me $5.00 to write the sen- 
tence before this one. Mr. Canee jet is a jock on 
the company soccer and lightweight football 
fields and has the bruises on his posterior to 
prove it! Among Bill's major accomplishments 
at Navy are: completely scaring a poor Young- 
ster to death with the 'look in his eyes'; having 
11 inches of hair for three years that looked 
like four inches since it was so curly; for being 
so blind that he mistook the ship in the yard (a 
DLG) for his YP and ending up taking part in 
ASW as part of an ASROC missile (watch out 
surface line); and for being born under the 
sign of the oscar flag. In conclusion, the best I 
know about Bill is his girl friend.

Dan — known to roommates as Gunther 
fwell, he looks like a Gunther!!), a Foreign Af- 
fairs major, is fluent in Spanish. Known for 
colorful dress (wore a serape to class over his 
WWC Youngster year), flamboyant oratory 
(he is on the Commandant's briefing team), 
and impulsive action (invited Tricia Nixon to 
Army game) — a real competitor and athlete 
(he had a 5 day case of amnesia due to a soft- 
ball injury), as well as a man of principle ("but 
the reg book doesn't say we can't grow flowers 
on the ledge, sir") — had an interesting Plebe 
year and an interesting 2/c summer, especially 
Quantico. (O.K., Edelstein, the Fu-Manchu has 
got to go!!!). Dan hopes to get selected for Nu- 
clear Power and being a Navy iunior, follow in 
his father's footsteps. Daniel s most famous 
quote is "I don't have a hometown — the 
Navy's my home." 


Jimmy always claimed he was more Texas 
than an Armadillo, more Dixie than a boll 
weevil, but he up and got bowled over by a 
Yankee lass from New Castle, Delaware (zip 
^- 19720). Jim's main asset, aside from a jelly- 
filled brain that consistently spewed forth 
lucky number combos for Sup's and Dean's 
Lists, was a real, live, oh-my-God Texas-sized 
mouth. It was so big that, when he yawned, ev- 
erything tumbled out by brasso. "The un- 
striper" famous for speaking his mind, but al- 
ways sincere about what he spoke, Jim found 
even more expression in what he sang, as a 
member of Chapel Choir and Glee Club. He 
liked sailing but not as much as parking (thank 
goodness for car riding privileges). Chances 
are he'll find the hot spots down in Davy 
Jones' locker club when he joins Rickover's 
"squid squad." 


Doug came to the Academy from Montgom- 
ery, Alabama, with a record of community ser- 
vice and high academic performance. A true 
Southerner "Dubo" never really left Dixie 
when he reported for his four years of fun and 
study on the Severn. Rare was the night when 
Doug couldn't be found telling at least one tale 
of Alabama football or the good life of the 
South. His house soon became number one on 
the list of where to have fun and meet girls in 
the summer. By combining his talent with 
hard work, he won his stars. A natural all- 
round athlete, he could always be found in the 
nucleus of some company sports team. Doug's 
good-naturedness and determination will un- 
doubtedly lead him to success in all his future 


Ted, a Navy junior from Reno, Nevada, has 
been homeported in Seattle, Naples, California 
and D. C. The company's all-around "good ev- 
erything," whether on the field of soccer, foot- 
ball, Softball or golf. Whether studying weap- 
ons, wires, German or his first love (history) — 
whether giving E.I. (in 9 subjects at once), 
standing watch or building a stereo, Ted Kaye 
never ceased to excel. One of a few midship- 
men who truly relaxed at the con, "TL" has 
been, is, and always will be a dedicated des- 
troyerman. Never a stranger to the Sup's List, 
and always chasing sometimes catching those 
elusive stars, Ted also appreciated the finer 
things in life, especially the New England ver- 
sion. A man's man and a great guy we all hope 
we can serve with him again in the future. 
"And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer 
her by." 


Dave, though having lived in several cities, 
considers himself to be from El Centro, Calif. 
He is probably one of the more active members 
of the Brigade, boasting a lon^ list of club 
memberships and activities. Bemg a devout 
Christian, much of his time is spent with reli- 
giously oriented activities, including NACA, 
OCU, 1700 chapel services and others. Dave 
chose to spend his study time in Oceanography 
(when he wasn't spending it in the pad), and 
within that major he likes "rocks" best. Never 
doing anything halfway, he joined MTS to en- 
hance his knowledge of the sea, and soon be- 
came one of its officers. Jiist as his enthusiasm 
and devotion have led him to a successful tour 
as a midshipman, these qualities will continue 
to give him success in any future endeavor. 


Tom, known far and wide as the hulk, rose 
out of a corn patch in Ohio and came East to 
attend USNA and play football. Unfortunate- 
ly he got "cut off at the pass" by the ac board 
and went up to the long green table not once, 
but twice during Plebe year, and that was 
about it for football! With all his extra time he 
managed to pull sat by first semester of 2/c 
year and win a few Brigade championships in 
batt track. He was constantly on the trail of 
knowledge (you know, to the 1st Wing for 
wires gouge, 7th Wing for weapons gouge . . . 
and sometimes he actually found it (the moc 
shack on 7-3 had all the answers). Basically if 
he can keep his mind on the "bombs-boats- 
buU" trilogy of 1/c year and off the deprecia- 
tion and long term investment optimization 
and maximization of personal pleasure in- 
volved in buying a car he may fool enough 
profs and actually graduate in the top half of 
our class.

Mike, known to his friends as "the Micker" 
and to a select close few as "the Mongoloid," 
hails from the thriving metropolis of North 
Jackson, Ohio which boasts one drug store, 4 
gas stations and 28 bars. Mick looks to the Ma- 
rine Corps to take him in after graduation and 
will certainly fit in with the corps of "green 
giants." At 6'5" and 230 pounds, Mick has 
played football during his stay at Navy, and 
played it well. Although never really a "ladies' 
man" Mick hasn't done exactly bad in that de- 
partment and rumor has it that a certain pret- 
ty young lady from Pensacola looms large in 
his immediate future. Academics have never 
really been Mick's strong suit yet as he says, 
and in a way only Mick could put it, "Look, you 
guys, with a 2.06 cum, I've still got 0.06 


"The Rock," as he was known by all, can 
claim as his most distinguished accomplish- 
ment at Navy the coveted Black "N." Yes, by 
some slip of fate, the defunct (?) Exec. Dept. 
nabbed him. Never to be left out of any rally 
conducted by either regiment, he was always 
the center of attraction with his trusty side- 
kick, Bud Weiser. Once Rock makes up his 
mind to do something, there was no one who 
could change it, with the exception of one pret- 
ty little girl known as Roe. A devout debater. 
Rock would argue with anyone about anything 
at anytime. Why he was always right, only he 
knows. As is evidenced by the foregoing, he is 
by no means a production-line mid. But a little 
color here and there only adds to the 
scenery . . . 


Eddie, better known by all of us as "Sieves" 
or "Neander the Man," hails from the back- 
woods of Western Pennsylvania that human 
hands have seldom touched. In his years here 
at the Academy, he has actively participated in 
both varsity and company sports. He quickly 
gained the reputation of "natchet man" in 
company soccer and basketball. Majoring in 
Electrical Engineering, Ed soon became so in- 
volved in "double E" that he found little time 
to spend with that little rosebud from back 
home in the hills. Navy Line will probably be 
Ed's choice of service after graduation.

Jim, known as "night-owl" for his 
weekhours escapades into the fantasyland of 
wires, or as "Phantom" by people who didn't 
know better, was a guy who really cared about 
things that mattered. He spent more time with 
his Plebes than even their mothers had, and 
gained respect as one of our best leaders, firm 
yet understanding. He ran his heart out for 
cross country — but if was for the love of run- 
ning, not for the glory of organized sports, 
that made him do so. More of a listener than a 
talker, Jim will be remembered above all, for 
an inner pride that both rejected yet under- 
stood many everyday values. It showed in his 
penetrating subtlety, his paying Tom Diviak 
$5 to shut up for an hour, his trumpet and gui- 
tar playing, his generosity, his bizarre letters 
to girls, and the things he liked to talk about 
— important things. There is a force behind 
the words and smile that is almost frightening. 


Charles, affectionately called "Skip," "Spi- 
derman," "Resser the Boneman" or just plain 
Chuck by those who knew him, is a native of 
Youngstown, Ohio. Skip majored in Mechani- 
cal Engineering which required a vast amount 
of ener^ in order to keep abreast with the 
many difficult courses. For this reason, one 
was very apt to find him in the rack, deep in 
the arms of morpheus, snoring gloriously. Skip 
was a stud among the other mids as well as a 
Casanova — just ask him. However, he was al- 
ways willing to give out tips and secrets to aid 
the less fortunately endowed. Skip's one pas- 
sion is cars. Give him a stack of Hot Rod maga- 
zines or put him behind the wheel of some hot 
sports car on the dragstrip and it's cloud-9 for 
him. If all goes as he plans, Skip will enter the 
Civil Engineering Corps after graduation. 


Wes, the old man of the bunch, kept his 
roommates awake at night with the nerve- 
wracking sound of his arteries hardening. Ah, 
but old "destroyer man" could sling the bull 
with the best of 'em, and he'll be remembered 
as a treasure chest of trivia and anecdotes 
even more than the laughs he gave us as he 
wheezed (not whizzed) thru the mile run and 
rheumatismed his tired vertebrae thru the ap- 
plied weakness test. Wes rowed his way in and 
out of the Academy with the Class of '70, lost 
at Ac-Board roulette, and bilged out on the 
"Supe's 's' List." He vacationed for a year in 
the college of his choice near his home of Alex- 
andria, and won a new three-year scholarship 
at the un-college with the Class of '72. Yet 
19th Co.'s anachronism of the ancient system, 
the outspoken old warrior, the guy on 4th Deck 
whose room slowly degenerated into a veter- 
an's domiciliary, stayed on and on, living up to 
his famous slogan: "Never do today what you 
can put off until the period before class 


"Spit," better known to us in 19 as "the old 
man, ' came to us from jackrabbit country, or 
that area of the U.S. known as Texas. Being 
an Army brat. Spit fit into the military routine 
at USNA quite easily. From the start we could 
see that he was never one to be outdone by 
anyone, whether it was "whamoing" baked 
beef loaf or "chugging" a pitcher of beer; he is 
still the undisputed champ at downing a glass 
of water. Second Class Summer proved to be 
his downfall as he became hooked on a certain 
young lady. Graduation will probably find Spit 
headed for a ship somewhere in the fleet, and 
we are sure he will be a credit to himself wher- 
ever he may go. 


Willie, an agent in cahoots with Strom Thur- 
mond, was sent from "God's country," the 
promised land rumored to be near Swansea, 
South Carolina. Poor 19th Company has never 
fully recovered. "Willie, the Southern bigot" 
will be remembered most of all as a man of 
principles and deep inner dignity, a person who 
always commanded respect and admiration 
without trying to. Willie, was so far right that 
he suspected the John Birch Society of Soci- 
alist leanings; Tecumseh, a running-dog pinko 
dupe, got his pound of flesh from bigot since, 
Commie or no, big "T" was the God of 2.00. 
Soft-spoken, a true gentleman in every re- 
spect, Willie's doomed to be a "gung-ho" Sur- 
face Line salt. 


The very first day he arrived at Navy from 
Pensacola, Florida, it was obvious that Ed was 
a natural leader. During Plebe year Ed divided 
his time among his studies, indoor track and 
sailing. By 3/c year his efforts in academics 
and sailing began to pay off as he made the 
Sup's List and became a valuable asset to the 
Navy sailing team. On his free weekends, Ed 
could nearly always be found in the company 
of a very enticing member of the opposite sex. 
Even with all of this Ed had something more, 
the ability to take command and to use the au- 
thority associated with command wisely. It is 
these last two characteristics more than any- 
thing else that will make Ed an outstanding 
officer in the proud team of Navy Air.

After a year in a civilian college, Tom de- 
cided only the Navy would do, so he left the 
pleasant and easy life of Reading, Ohio, and 
joined us at USNA. Not one to be dismayed by 
the rigors of Plebe summer, he promptly put 
on 10 extra pounds and earned himself the 
name "Squats." Apt as his nickname might be, 
his amazing quickness proved valuable to the 
company soccer and football teams. Undaunt- 
ed by the academic departments, he main- 
tained a creditable average in Operations 
Analysis and hopes to use "OA" to tell the 
Navy what to do with its "Nuckie Boats." Ever 
true to the girl back home, the Navy can look 
forward to getting a fine, happily (?) married 
young officer. 


Mick came to us directly from Mason High 
School in Ohio. A standout on the Plebe foot- 
ball and lacrosse teams, Mick decided to con- 
centrate his efforts on football. Although Mick 
was always running into doors or falling 
downstairs, his coordination earned him the 
number 7 spot on the list of the all-time Navy 
receivers by the end of his 2/c year. Mick dis- 
tinguished himself as a whiz behind the wheel 
during his midnight run between College Park 
and USNA. Able to produce a smile on any- 
one's face, Mick was known as one-third of the 
Brigade's answer to the Marx Brothers. Mick 
was never one to waste time during study 
hour. He could be found either reviewing his 
football playbook or thinking of Connie. Capa- 
ble of handling himself in any situation, Mick 
will come on as a fine addition to the Naval 


Wayne reigns from a small town in upper 
New York, and has managed to retain all the 
cockiness and aggressiveness of the "greats" 
of that state. Standing at about 6'4" he can be 
spotted from any distance along the sacred 
corridors of Mother "B." Noted for his ready 
smile, Wayne has always been a snirited asset 
to '72. Ever since his formed "peach devour" of 
Plebe year he's devotedly maintained a steady, 
healthy appetite. The Antiphonal Choir would 
be at a great loss without his assets, but not as 
much (you can be sure) as his roommates 
might have beeni Destined to be one of the 
"marriage martyrs" come June '72, Wayne will 
be a welcomed personality to the fleet.

Two weeks before "turn your clothes in for 

fiajamas" day, Jerry unloaded his surfboard 
at a profit, of course) and left the surf and 
sand of Cocoa Beach, Florida. His "escape" 
was again to the water, but this time with an 
oar and eight other guys in a shell. If one is 
ever looking for Jerry and he's not in his room, 
the next place to look is up the Severn. A clos- 
er look will reveal that Jerry doesn't put all 
the emphasis on sports, however. He baritones 
weekly in the Antiphonal Choir, loves to sing 
contemporary folk and religious songs with a 
midshipman group known as "The New Hori- 
zon," and enjoys writing poetry when the 
mood hits him. To describe Boyer (a name he 
picked up via a former member of '73 who, evi- 
dently, was illiterate) in one word is hard, but 
the word "perseverance" is aptly descriptive of 
his efforts toward self-improvement. 


David, from a little town outside of Dallas, 
came to Navy to make it and did his best while 
he was here. He managed to make the Sup's 
List several times, but his fellow companymen 
made him take his true place among the show- 
ers on 2-2. He will be remembered helping to 
manage the basketball team, running back 
from the rifle range at Quantico, and being the 
same dumb Texan he always was. He is look- 
ing toward a Marine Corps career after his 
gfraduation and to spend a long time with a 
cute little girl from back home. 


Hailing from Boise, Idaho, Steve came here 
straight from high school to do battle with the 
forces of conduct, athletics, grease and aca- 
demics. His classmates will always remember 
him as the only man to get 140 demerits in 24 
hours and the only man to work them all off in 
one week of restriction in a BOQ bar, the man 
who managed to get the largest number of 
"messed up ' profs in 5 semesters, the man who 
got engaged to a girl he saw a total of 12 days 
in l-'/i years, and the man who had the hardest 
and most thankless job in the brigade, that of 
Lucky Bag Photo Editor. Hoping to wear 
grungy greens after g^-aduation, Steve has 
worked hard to prepare himself for life as a 
Marine Officer. 


From the "mile high city" touching the ma- 
jestic mountains of Colorado, Dave (who could 
easily be called "Mr. Applied Strength") came 
to the "Heaven on the Severn" to do his very 
best. Wrestling, studying, and writing to his 
high school sweetheart took up most of his 
time. But he found special time to remember 
his place on earth and his mission to his fellow 
men. Being active in all forms of Christian ac- 
tivities, NACA and FCA meetings will be 
missing a big man. His words "keep the faith" 
have been an encouragement to all those who 
know him. Although the academic department 
left him with little free time, he worked hard 
and kept improving til he achieved the honor 
of Sup s List. He never gave up the fighting 
spirit that characterized him in all he did, and 
earned him the respect and admiration of oth- 
ers. Because of Dave's strong will, conscien- 
tiousness, and cheerful attitude, he has much 
to offer the Navy — and a particular energet- 
ic, dedicated female!

Claiming to be the smallest minority group 
in Annapolis, a Paiute Indian, "Crunch" ar- 
rived from the barbed wire capital of the 
world (otherwise known as Waco, Texas) with 
definite intentions of being different. Differ- 
ent he was, but for his first 2 years his pecu- 
liarities were attributed to his being a Texan. 
However, Crunch came into his own as a 2/c. 
Who else would get thrown in the brig for a 
panty raid on waves' barracks, sit next to the 
OOD and see pink elephants instead of a wres- 
tling match, or ride his cycle in the Army pep 
rally? Having fun wasn't the only side of 
Crunch's activities. A Marine Engineer, 
Crunch frequented the Sup's List (for an extra 
weekend to party no doubt). He tried Brigade 
boxing and found that his short nose could fur- 
ther be shortened. Knowledge of the sea did 
not come easy to a cactus and prairie Texan 
but he tried hard. And by the time he was 
ready for the fleet, hopefully it was ready for 


Vin came to the Academy from Queens, 
New York, after graduating from Christ the 
King High School m 1968. He is known as the 
"Dude" to all his friends. Every afternoon Vin 
can be found over at the crew house working 
hard for his favorite sport. His other pastimes 
are scuba diving and guitar playing. In the 
evening he will most likely be studying Aero or 
trying out his own unique brand of humor on 
his fellow midshipmen. If Vinny manages to 
keep his grades up, he intends to go to nuclear 
power school after graduation. His determina- 
tion should make him an outstanding officer in 
our Navy's submarine force. 


Bob, hailing from the thriving metropolis of 
Mt. Airy, Ohio soon became adapted to the de- 
mands of military life. . . . almost. Recruited 
by the Big Blue, Bob spent 2 years struggling 
in the pits before decidmg to become a compa- 
ny sports jock. Weekends after Youngster year 
were spent racing between Baltimore and 
Gate 8. His grades were good though not out- 
standing, due to the energetic efforts of the 
Math Department. But, all in all, Bob's grades 
were not hampered by his studying. Seriously 
though he was always willing to put out the 
effort when it was needed, even if that meant 
staying up so late he didn't have time to write 
a letter to his better half. Upon graduation 
Bob will spend a year, at least,' in the "real 
Navy" before hitting the beaches and "0" 
Club at Pensacola. His tremendous personality 
and energetic spirit will insure him success as 
a wearer of the gold wings.

Bob came to Canoe U. from everywhere, yet 
nowhere. An Air Force brat, he has lived in 
many places, but claims California as his home. 
"Denffs" has been active in company sports 
and the sailing squadron, proving m both that 
he has only two left feet. Possessed by a desire 
to excel in everything attempted. Bob found 
time to study as well as pursue his hobbies of 
eating, sleeping and drinking, in reverse order 
of importance. A keen sense of humor, and a 
quick wit often got Bob into as much trouble 
as it could, but he weazled his way out by ex- 
pressions like "Pass the beer please classmate." 


Brian, or better known as "Hoagie," came to 
us from Fairview Park, Ohio, where he was 
one of Fairview High's top scholars and tennis 
men. Once at dear USNA, Hoagie forsook his 
tennis for the world of academics, where he 
quickly distinguished himself. Night time, 
ireetime and weekends found him in his re- 
served seat in the library. He is still reserving 
his vengeance for that one prof who slipped 
him his lone 'B.' Hoagie, after a little arm 
twisting, snaps a shutter or two for the Lucky 
Bag. A BlacK Magic major, and member in 
good stead of Sigma Pi Sigma, he has a Tri- 
dent project in his eyes. Somehow he finds 
spare time for occasional outings on his two- 
wheeled man-killer and has been known to 
share his favorite wire's problems with a spe- 
cial hometown someone. Brian plans to stay in 
Navy blue and someday drive boats by his ser- 
vice endeavors will have to wait for his aca- 
demic loves, attention grad school. 


Ron, while here at Navy, was almost one 
step behind the infamous Philo McGiffen. For- 
tunately, for Ron, not even his roommates 
were aware of his many and varied nocturnal 
activities. Ron operated best in the wee morn- 
ing hours. Many a MOOW or OOD has been 
roused to see who in hell is taking a post mid- 
night steam bath or an early, early morning 
jaunt around Farragut Field. Ron also claims 
the world's record for the Severn River swim. 
Ron being a Navy junior has the Navy almost 
completely figured out and can't wait until he 
is able to "rake and skate" in the big time. Ron 
hopes to dive with "Uncle Hymie's' boys or go 
surface line. Either way the fleet will get at 
least one man who will enjoy standing the mid

When Tom, "Juddman," or "Man from" 
came to the Academy in '68 he could have 
passed for 15 and gotten in most movies for 
half price. Since "that day" he has aged 10 
years, lost 30 pounds and a Southern accent. 
Since the days of colliding his platoon into 
walls and other platoons, Tom has worked con- 
stantly in academics, varsity 150 lb. football, 
basketball, ECA's — in every direction. Tom is 
interested in going Naval Aviation and just to 
keep in practice he flies South often to see his 
Southern Belle in Alabama. Most of his friends 
will admit that there is something about Tom 
which is an early indication of success; his 
classmates saw this in him and asked him to be 
their honor representative. After master's 
work in Aerospace, flight training, and jet 
training — possibly someday we may read of 
Astronaut Judd walking on some "Red" 


Mac left his native Chicago on June 2b, 1968 
and since then he has spent most of his time 
enjoying the many recreational opportunities 
offered at Navy. He came to us from Brother 
Rice High School where he was captain of his 
school football team. His athletic endeavors in- 
clude Plebe football, batt weight lifting and 
company football; Mac is also active in many 
clubs, among them the Sportsman's Club and 
his favorite, the Charterhouse Club. His 
hobbies consist of cycling and drinking. Al- 
though Tom has never been noted for his aca- 
demic prowess, he hopes to avoid the academic 
board for three more semesters and enjoy a 
long career in the Marine Corps. 


Having fun has been one of "Peef's" trade- 
marks since the beginning, back in '68. For his 
minuscule accomplishments as a "rack rassler" 
he earned the title "Mouse" and has been 
squeaking ever since. By nature an aquatic an- 
imal, Pete could usually be seen scurrying to 
and from the swimming pool, where he spent 
most of his afternoons when not getting better 
acquainted with his rack. Considering his in- 
terests, it seemed natural for "Mouse to pick 
Oceanography as his piece of cheese, and de- 
spite fluids, he scampered thru all academic 
traps. It's fitting that Pete plans to go surface 
line, where he can view the "great blue" to his 
heart's content. His easygoing personality, 
readiness to make friends and willingness to 
"overlook" certain regs will insure the surface 
line crew of an outstanding officer and a real

"Kes" came to us from McConnellsville, Ohio 
armed with a quick wit and a ready smile. 
Never one to be hindered by academics, study 
hour usually found Larry "making the 
rounds." The crew team quickly put Kes' com- 
petitive spirit and athletic ability to good use 
by giving him a slat in the first boat Plebe 
year. Later, Larry turned his attention to in- 
tramurals and became a mainstay of the vol- 
leyball team and a leader of the infamous 
"heavies." Possessing no fear of the system it 
was a rare weekend when Kes was not out 
with "the boys." In Larry the Navy has gained 
a cool head which, when coupled with his com- 
mon sense, is a combination that is hard to 


Steve, or more commonly called by his 
friends "Log" or "Logu" came to the awaiting 
arms of Mother "B" from Timonium, Mary- 
land. At the onset of Plebe year he displayed 
his talents by making Dean's List and being a 
starter on the company's championship volley- 
ball team. He contributed his academic success 
to "the inverse law of study time" (the less you 
study, the better your marks are). Number 5 
on the high bar and that eternal span of the 
200 yard swim kept him from obtaining Sup's 
List a number of times. His room was a wel- 
come haven for chow seeking "friends" and 
less enlightened compatriots searching for 
knowledge in the form of E.L His renowned, 
sarcastic wit and many practical jokes like the 
talking box, kept his many friends laughing 
and a few of the misinformed thoroughly con- 
fused. His determination, as well as academics 
and professional ability, will undoubtedly pro- 
vide the Naval Service with an outstanding 


Dick "Fighting P" Polly, arrived in Annapo- 
lis from the thriving metropolis of Lemon 
Cove, California where the orange trees out- 
number the people 100,000 to one. Hitting the 
Academy directly from high school, Dick ini- 
tially found academics troublesome. But 
through a lot of hard work and long hours 
(both typical of him) pulled his marks up suffi- 
ciently to go out for 150 lb. football his 2/c 
year, where he further demonstrated his ath- 
letic ability. "Fighting P" certainly wasn't all 
work. He was an enthusiastic opponent in 
water wars and also did his share of undercov- 
er work, especially during the famous "turtle 
war." Also, he was no stranger to the fairer 
sex, dating two yard engines at the same time 
for awhile. But a certain blue eyed, blond 
haired, bomb shell from back home will most 
likely win out after graduation, as will the Ma- 
rine Corps who will be gaining an excellent 
and haraworking officer. 


Bruce came to Annapolis out of high school 
in Corinth, New York. Despite every effort of 
the academic department to return him to his 
loved ones, "BV managed to attain that gold- 
en 2.0 and remain with us. Coming from an Air 
Force family was a major handicap, but it 
didn't take him long to decide that "the only 
way is underway." As an OA major he intends 
going destroyers upon graduation. He is also 
an ardent believer in intramural sports and 
can be found playing squash, fieldball, or 
rugby as the season dictates. Whatever "BV" 
does his sincerity and devotion will be a great 
asset to both his country and to all those who 
come in contact with him. 


After 3 years at Temple, "Rabes" decided 
that pre-med was not his "bag" and that Navy 
might be. A native of Hatboro, Pa., he seldom 
visits home but travels in and out of the U.S. 
via Navy transports visiting his many women 
and finding new ones. Known widely as "Body 
Beautiful,' and "Mr. Tan," he can be found 
over in the Field House lifting weights or in 
the warmer months at Red Beach. A natural 
athlete, he was a prospective startee for Plebe 
football, but because of frail bones and numer- 
ous injuries just did not fare too well there; he 
has, however, been as asset to intramural 
snorts. He was nominated and elected to 
Who's Who Among Students in American Col- 
leges and Universities. A hard worker and a 
very likeable guy. Bob will go far as a NFO in 
Navy Air.

George, a true Southerner, came straight 
from Spartansburg, South Carolina to the 
quiet little backwater town of Annapolis to get 
his education. Immediately after Plebe year he 
saw the light and became one of the "Pad 
Monster's" favorite victims while feuding con- 
tinuously with the Math Department. Eventu- 
ally winning out to quietly pursue his major of 
Oceanography, his career in Navy Line, with 
the rest of us, will prove to be just another 
"Waves Lab." Here at Navy George learned to 
stroke crew and achieved the rather dubious 
distinction of first string fieldballer. As far as 
extracurricular activities were concerned, he 
worked as the photographer for the Log, 
spending all his spare hours developing his fa- 
vorite pastimes of snapping and sleeping, 
closely followed by chasing the young lovelies 
he photographed. 


The closest R. B. ever came to being imitat- 
ed was the day he was born one of a pair. From 
that point "Greaves" as he is infamously 
known, took it on his own. His little black book 
will verify the fact that Ron is no ordinary 
man. Many a woman has come and gone 
through the gates of Crabtown U. to visit R. B. 
and if some lucky lovely does not claim him by 
June '72 one roomie will lose a $5 bet! 
Throughout the Hall, Ron is known for his 
great personality and pleasant smile. In the 
sports scene, Ron has been a starter for the 4th 
Batt footballers, and has gone so far as to at- 
tempt Brigade boxing. We all have confidence 
that his swimming sub-squad antics will con- 
tinue for years to come. In the extracurricular 
department, Ron has served as class V.P. and 
on numerous committees.

J. R. came to "Boat School" from the wilds 
of Shawnee Mission, and only he knows where 
in Kansas that is! John quickly decided that he 
didn't like the water and that he wanted gravi- 
ty working for him — not against him, and 
started dreaming of wings and haloes. "Y.A." 
soon showed his incurable affection for foot- 
ball, being the first out for practice every sea- 
son, and during the off season using his feet on 
that other "football," soccer. Our playboy 
bachelor, an ace four times over, needing 
someone to tenderly care for his many injuries, 
has shown signs of weakening and a definite 
tendency toward his 7th grade sweetheart. 
Hey, John, when gravity stops working, how 
about putting in a word for the rest of us with 
St. Pete? 


Rick, 'Rubes' to many, came to the Academy 
having already lived a remarkable 18 years as 
a Navy Junior. With homes as far away as 
France, and California, and as close as cap- 
tain's row at USNA. Plebe year found him 
servant of two famous firsties. Cliff and 
Gants, who took care of their 'Bernie,' (and got 
him a sweater chit). As an Oceanography 
major. Rick spent long hours studying often 
far into the night, but was always available to 
help others with their problems — be they aca- 
demic, financial, or the need of clippers. His 
sincere concern for others was evidenced by his 
tremendous effort as Brigade Chairman of the 
POW Campaign. Rick's fantastic sense of 
humor and large store of professional knowl- 
edge will make its contribution in Navy sur- 
face line. 


Although "Shills" came to Mother "B" from 
the wilds of Ada, Oklahoma, Bill claims Texas 
as his one-and-only. Grades were never a prob- 
lem, although he could be seen on more than 
one night burning the midnight oil. Between 
studies. Bill could be found day dreaming of 
the wide open spaces or working with the Juice 
Gang. He is an avid sports fan, and could be 
seen each set bolstering the company teams. 
Shills is best known for his aggressiveness and 
his love for the heat of battle. If there is a 
fight, Shills is the type of person you want on 
your side. Graduation will see Bill impatiently 
rushing to the altar. His determination and 
spirit of competition will make him at home 
anywhere he goes in life. 


A former stud from Catonsville High, in 
Baltimore, "Altie" can always be counted on 
any time or any place for a laugh. Even be- 
tween such time consuming activities as mon- 
ster walking and moonlighting, he has 
achieved a respectable 3.0 grade average. He 
takes great pride in his uniform, indeed infan- 
try dress stocks will live forever. A great be- 
liever in door to door salesmanship, he is bound 
to succeed in deck to deck seamanship. Class- 
mates respect him, officers tolerate him, and 
Plebes dump on him. If you need a hand, Altie 
will lend it as he is bound to make all Ameri- 
can all right guy . . . just ask Judy. In June of 
'72 — when Alton ventures forth to join the 
mighty greyhound pack, USNA will never be 
the same — if you know what I mean. 


After Van was kicked out of Lincoln, Ne- 
braska, he was immediately picked up by 
Navy, which apparently foresaw his tremen- 
dous potential as a Naval officer. In the rack 
or in bull sessions. Van never let the wonderful 
world of academics interfere with his life at 
USNA. A great believer in an active social life, 
he was rarely found in the hall on weekends 
and became a prominent figure in "Jake's 
Raiders" on Saturday nights. An avid sports 
fan, Van played intramural handball, volley- 
ball, football, and Softball during his four 
years here. He is undecided as to which branch 
of the service should be graced by his abilities, 
but his friendly nature and leadership qualities 
will insure him great success wherever he

"Quince" blundered into the Academy after 
a particularly hairy schuss at the Pico ski area 
near his home in Rutland, Vermont. But Bakes 
wasn't destined to stay thawed out for very 
long; with the arrival of Plebe year academics, 
he soon found himself back in his natural ele- 
ment — snow! Rick took time off to put in suc- 
cessful stints in Plebe and batt lacrosse, excel- 
ling in company sports in the off season. Rick 
waged a generally successful war with the 
pad, but could occasionally be seen to flame 
out, crash and burn at crucial times. Quince 
was a welcome addition to (though more often 
originator of) any bull session, adding a rare 
blend of humor, personality, and enthusiasm. 
He 'lan always be counted upon to liven up any 
activity, but outdoes himself at any "0" Club 
bar gathering. As the only living survivor of 
the 'Great Pensacola Sinking Sink Scare of 
1970' Bakes is sure to do well after graduation. 
The destroyer force will be getting a great 
skiier . . . uh . . . boat driver. 


How "Bloss" ever heard the call of the sea 
all the way out in Missouri we'll never know, 
but he did and the Navy got the good end of 
the deal this time because Big John is one of 
the better leaders in our class. Bloss hails from 
Jefferson City, Missouri where he started on 
the famous Jefferson City High School with 
their 72 game winning streak. He brought to 
USNA an outstanding sense of humor and an 
even greater loyalty to the Navy. Weekends 
usually find Bloss out with one of his numer- 
ous "sisters" or playing rugby for the Annapo- 
lis club. Even though he absolutely loves 
Johnny Cash, Bloss will definitely be one of 
the finer officers to enter the fleet. 


"Deputy Dog" came to us in the summer of 
'68, a shy, innocent, protected boy. His indoc- 
trination to sin and corruption has charged full 
ahead ever since. Youngster year, his wrath 
descended upon Bacardi and Co., consuming 
over 50% of Jake's rum output for the fiscal 
year. Second Class year "Hog Man" discovered 
Southern Comfort, and, consequently indulged 
in an all-out campaign to boost sales 100%. 'The 
sole owner and operator of USNA's own S.F. 
library, he can always be counted upon to sac- 
rifice precious study time to counsel a custom- 
er on which of the myriad of paperbacks to se- 
lect. Mark also spends as much time as neces- 
sary giving extra instruction to fellow engi- 
neers. The remainder of his time is equally di- 
vided between football practice and worship- 
ping the royal order of Igor, the pad monster. 
An Aerospace major, Mark's ultimate goal is 
naval air.

Jeff stumbled onto the Academy from 
Akron, Ohio. He probably got lost searching 
for his drive off the 8th hole at Firestone. A 
staunch supporter of the Akron Zips, the Kent 
State Flashes and of course his #1 team, Ohio 
State, he frequently recounts numerous takes 
of the fabled Aceme Zip-Game played at Ak- 
ron's own Rubber Bowl. Aside from Jeff's 
more humorous side and the Friday night hor- 
ror flicks there is also a deeply serious one. Ac- 
ademically he is more than just getting by. 
And as far as the Navy is concerned, Jeff has a 
lot of ideas on how to make it better. Perhaps 
it's his Analytical Management background. 
The destroyer force will undoubtedly be next 
to greet Jeff with golf clubs in hand, and a 
decK of cards ready to hustle the wardroom in 
a game of Double Chicago. 


Mightier than a locomotive. Faster than a 
speeding bullet. Able to leap tall buildings in a 
single bound. Look ... up in the sky! It's a 
bird . . . it's a plane ... no, it's just Dan on 
one of his excursions to Pax River for skydiv- 
ing. Hailing from Laguna Beach, Calif., this 
intrepid adventurer managed to do it all, from 
karate, scuba diving, and flying in Okinawa to 
skydiving and scuba instructor here at Navy. 
And no one will ever forget the experience of 
dropping by the room for conversation only to 
meet the baleful stare of his 3-'/^ foot pet igua- 
na. But through it all Dan maintained a burn- 
ing desire to fly and excel. Terror of Plebes, 
enigma to upperclass, and friend to all his 
classmates, this was Dan. And no doubt will 
hear more of him and from him in the fleet. 


Cos came to Navy from Springfield, Mass. 
Being the second in his family to go the Acade- 
my route, his brother being a member of "70," 
he quickly adjusted to Academy life taking all 
the good Navy deals in stride. Plebe academics 
were a breeze as were all his endeavors in 
learning. He has a space reserved on the Sup's 
List. Although his grades were always high, 
Cos was not one to waste time studying. Dur- 
ing those so called study hours he could be 
found watching the tube, fighting Igor, 
dreaming of Naval aviation or taking part in 
one of the nightly get togethers known as bull 
sessions. After a brief tour with Navy line, Cos 
will be on his way to Pensacola and tnose Navy 
wings of gold. 


Richard Terry Englund, better known as 
"Puma," was one helluva stud in all aspects of 
USNA life. He played football, baseball, and 
basketball at Eisenhower High in Yakima, 
Wash., pronounced YA-KI-MA, and therefore 
was well experienced for Navy athletics. The 
nickname "Puma" was attached in high school 
and its actual origin is still unknown, but after 
two years with Dick no other name seems 
more fitting. He has a stalking nature, poised 
and confident with perseverance and dedica- 
tion throughout. This Sup's List regular has 
found time for "that" girl and his studies too. 
He is a real g^eat guy, respected by all.

Although it's commonly assumed that a mili- 
tary man cannot be a humanist, Frank spent 
four years proving this false. Although his vir- 
tuous and highly professional roommate at- 
tempted to keep him on the straight and nar- 
row path of respectability and celibacy, Frank 
continued in his sinful ways up until gradua- 
tion and, presumably, will continue his bache- 
lor pursuits for some time afterward. His only 
major contribution during his four year inter- 
ment here resulted from his efforts as Editor 
of the 1972 Lucky Bag. Second only to his girl 
problems were his trials within the confines of 
the Natatorium, clocking the fastest 20-yard 
sprint across the bottom of the pool in the his- 
tory of Navy swimming. Due to four years of 
indecision split equally between civilian college 
and the Marine Corps, Frank entered tne 
Academy as the "old man" of the company, 
providing much needed help during Plebe year 
and afterwards. Whether he returns to the 
Corps or picks a career elsewhere, Frank will 
always be remembered as a devoted classmate. 


Jimmy hails from Rialto, Calif, where he 
played his high school in football, basketball 
and baseball. After a short time after high 
school, he succumbed to his true calling and 
enlisted in the Navy. Following a short time he 
was admitted to NAPS and eventually to 
USNA. Jimmy was a Southpaw hurler for the 
Plebe baseball team and has continued on the 
varsity level. Second only to his love for sports 
is a desire to have a good time. Crabman and 
his roommates have always been a source of 
fun, especially at the "serious" parties they 
frequent. This helped enable him to be the 
first man to earn a Black "N" during the '70- 
'71 academic year. His plans following gradua- 
tion are still up in the air. Regardless of his 
choice though, Jimmy will be a welcome addi- 
tion to the fleet. 


"Fox," not unlike Alice dropping into Won- 
derland, found himself at the Academy. The 
story line was not to be destroyed, for his 
"Cheshire" grin was often seen peering out 
from under the sheets of his never lonesome 
pad. His frivolous antics on the touch football 
field and a bad "twist" of fate earned Larks an 
unchallenged starting position on the excused 
squad. Ever meticulous, his drooping socks 
never seemed to go with his hand painted, 
form fitted soccer cleats. His overwhelming 
generosity and his unparalleled sense of humor 
often found Bob asking "Who's going to Steer- 
age?" Never being able to find time for fluids, 
homework. Bob always managed to give a lit- 
tle E.I. to many bull sessions in any aspect of 
everything. Aside from all kidding, Robert was 
a member of the varsity Shields team and has 
lad more than his share of success in the aca- 
demic world. Undecided as to what branch of 
the Navy he will make his services available. 
Bob will be a great asset to whatever service 
he does select.

Snorkel arrived at USNA from the thriving 
metropolis of Glenwood, Iowa, and did his best 
to lend a bucolic air to Plebe year. He became 
famous for his quote "Pigs are beautiful." Al- 
though he spent little time in sports during 
high school, he quickly became a standout on 
the Annapolis rugby club as well as one of the 
better competitors on various intramural 
teams. Ron was the first to bite the dust in 21, 
becoming engaged immediately after Young- 
ster Cruise and looking forward to getting his 
nose ring in June of '72. His consistently cheer- 
ful disposition and willingness to pull a prank 
(when he hasn't been getting extra instruction 
from the pad monster), has made life on 4-4 
easier for all. Ron has a drive that will take 
him far regardless of his service choice and his 
warm, outgoing personality will make him a 
welcome addition to any wardroom. 


Joey G. floated into Annapolis one sunny 
day in '68 on a cloud of brightly shining ideal- 
ism. Three years, eleven and one-half months 
later he floated out — this time on a brightly 
shining destroyer. The idealism was still there 
and through daily applications of brasso and 
elbow grease, still gleaming — the visible part 
at least. Bill provided one of '72's finest exam- 
ples of professionalism: obtaining his YP com- 
mand 2/c Year, Managing Editor of that mag- 
nificent publication, the 1972 Lucky Bag, a 
consistent name on the Dean's List, member of 
the NA-10, Honor Representative, and mem- 
ber of the French Club. Young Willie Glass 
steered on a straight course from Hingham, 
Mass. through USNA to the destroyer Navy 
and his one-and-only love, Nancy. There has 
never been any doubt as to Bill's surface-line 
career choice — the only question is whether 
or not they're ready for him. 


Kreegs came to USNA after a year of the 
good life at Penn State. A letterman in foot- 
ball and wrestling in high school, he has been a 
standout on battalion and company intramural 
teams. Pinned since Plebe year, Kreegs doesn't 
plan to spend his future as a bachelor. An ac- 
tive member of the 21st Company Handwalk- 
ers Anonymous, he holds the record for hand- 
stand pushups. After his required time with 
Navy Line Kreegs plans to go Navy Air. Those 
immortal words, "Kreeger, stowhead," will 
long be remembered by his classmates in the 
21st Company. 


"Mad Dog, Mercury, Face Man" Mooney 
came to Canoe U. a misguided, fun-loving, 
carefree youth from the South side of Chicago. 
His tales of fun and frenzy have passed away 
many of the 21st Company study hours. But 
for the Dog, the weekends were not times of 
talk, but action. Wherever he went a party fol- 
lowed. He didn't have to look for parties, they 
found him. Continuing on as King Pin will not 
be hard for the Dog, it comes natural. For the 
past four years partying and making sure his 
books remained untouched was his business, 
and business was good. Never wasting time on 
studies, Mad Dog still managed Sup s List in 
Electrical Engineering, believe it or not. As for 
girls, Face Man remains unchained, being 
quoted "Girls, they are like buses, miss one 
now and another one will be by right on sched- 
ule." The Dog should look forward to a pleas- 
ant career, for at least the next five years. If 
the Navy can't hold him, a beautiful female 


"Muss" hails from Auburn in Sunny Califor- 
nia and is one of the state's main disciples. Yet 
he did find one particular East Coast girl, 
Chris, that caught his eye and held it for quite 
a while. He was active in various clubs ranging 
from Judo to Spanish and Foreign Relations. 
It wasn't hard to find Muss in the afternoons 
in the Fall and Spring, he was on his way sail- 
ing down the Chesapeake. His sailing achieve- 
ments include being a member of the crew 
that won the HoUoway Cup in 1969 and a 
member of the crew of the Jubilee III. Warren 
was one of the easiest going mids in the entire 
Brigade. It was hard to get him upset, which 
helped not only his roommate many times but 
was also an inspiration to the rest of his class- 
mates. With his good humor and hard work 
Warren will be a valuable addition to the

Good 'ole Neville Newlan, the blonde Bomb- 
er, came to the boat school from nearby D. C. 
He quickly became engulfed in Academy ri- 
gors and chose to enter the field of Oceanogra- 
phy. Neville always did have a love of water, 
as could be seen in his perennial joining of the 
swimming sub squad. He finally passed by, 
"Taking a deep breath, sinking to the bottom 
and running like hell." Youngster year proved 
to be a big year in Neville's life, he met what 
we all lovingly know as "Neville's woman." 
Every weekend the blonde bomber and his 
woman would put aside the Academy life and 
try to forget old Mother ."B." With his knack 
of getting the gouge and hard work, Neville 
has been able to achieve noteworthy academic 
achievements. Look out Norfolk, here he 


Known as "Chip" to his comrades and closest 
enemies, Steve hails from Clinton, New York 
where he can be found during the winter leave 
periods attending the "Comet" hockey games. 
After a rough Plebe year, Steve's burning de- 
sire to excel achieved him success on the aca- 
demic front, as one could always e.xpect to find 
him studying at his desk until the late hours of 
night. A success athletically, Steve proved to 
be a vital link on the company soccer, light- 
weight football, and Softball teams. One of the 
inventors of the four year slack button, Steve's 
enthusiastic attitude, quick wit, and sense of 
humor made him a welcome sight at any bar, 
where he could often be found having just 
"one more for the road" while talking to his 
pet quorum. A staunch member of the "Utica 
Club ' generation, the Blue Wave's leadership 
abilities and experience during his 5 year stay 
in the Navy will prove valuable in later civilian 
life as he will most certainly succeed in any 
field he endeavors. 


Dave came to the fun, free swinging East 
Coast from the great metropolis of Milford, 
Ohio, of which Cincinnati is a small suburb. It 
wasn't a straight shot for the "Great Swag," 
he came via the University of Florida. A varsi- 
ty footballer, basketballer, and trackster in 
high school, he continued to show his love of 
comjielition in intramurals and academics 
while here at Navy. Second Class year brought 
about many changes for Rosy, for one he was 
now a much sought after eligible bachelor. So 
far, however, he has managed to escape all 
plots to get him to the altar, but who knows 
what will happen in years to follow. We know 
one thing, he will do well and be well liked 
whatever he does and wherever he goes.

Tom, a well known figure on the interna- 
tional scene, a Navy Junior, came to Navy 
from Texas. His many antics have given him 
an almost permanent spot in those informal 
weekend gatherings in front of the Main Of- 
fice, and earned him the nickname of "Village 
Idiot." V.I., a scholar in the truest sense of the 
word is often found studying on dates, in bars, 
and at parties. Extracurricularly Tom takes 
swimming seriously both in Macdonough and 
the Charter House Motel. He has also been 
known to take his precision marching to heart. 
Tom's personality can't help but take him far 
in the Corps. 


Mike came to USNA from Meridian, Miss, 
with one goal in mind; to become a fighter 
pilot. He got through Plebe summer un- 
scathed, but then caught the wrath of Goody, 
Hazzy, and company. Not one to be intimidat- 
ed, Mike survived all harassment and became 
one of the top men in the company. When he 
wasn't studying Aero, Mike could be found 
walking on his hands, reading about 'ole Miss 
or polishing lightning rods. Mike spent his aft- 
ernoons rowing crew and scoring touchdowns 
for the company football team. Come 2/c year 
we all stood by and watched Mike become 
quite an operator, as he received more fan mail 
each day than anyone else. Mike will be head- 
ing for Pensacola when he graduates to fulfill 
his ambition to become a fighter pilot. 


Vince came to USNA straight out of high 
school from the wilds of Burlington, Vt. Be- 
coming engulfed by the system, Vince or 
"Vinny" has done his best to combat the pad 
monster, the shadow command, the many 
catch-22's here. Coming off a State High 
School football championship team he had the 
ability to play well for the little blue his 
Youngster Year. Besides a cute chick named 
Maureen, his other loves have been a little 
green bomb, blowing glass into what always 
comes out to be a Polish anti-aircraft gun and 
playing first man on Fourth Batt's handball 
team. On the academic side Vince has done 
well making the Sup's List once in his hard 
Mechanical Engineering major. A leader and a 
funny man in our countless bull sessions, he is 
cheered by his friends with shouts of 
"Heyyyvy, Vinnyyyyy!" Vince will continue to 
do well in aspects of life, including the 


This plump little Greek olive was not far 
from his Baltimore home and high school 
sweetheart, Sue, while attending good old 
USNA, just minutes from his house. Chris' 
high school was a place called Baltimore Po- 
lytechnic Institute and he thinks it's the great- 
est school in the world at any level. The Greek 
was active in company and battalion sports 
and gained his supreme achievement Young- 
ster Year as a star on the batt lacrosse team 
which won the Brigade championships. Young- 
ster year also taught Chris that the barbershop 
business tended to keep him in pocket change. 
Chris has to be the only man here that knows 
at least 60% of the 4300 man Brigade by their 
first names. He was one of Mrs. M's favorite 
Hop Committeemen and was also active on the 
BAC. As popular as Chris is and with the quali- 
ties he has, he will be an officer that the Navy 
will really be proud of.

Dick, hailing from the thriving metropolis of 
Libertyville, Illinois, came to Navy to seek 
fame and fortune. He has since come out of the 
clouds and now spends every spare moment in 
the fencing loft trying to establish order.out of 
chaos. Often called "Beerfoam" due to his af- 
finity for "The nectar of the Gods" Dick never 
turns down the chance to live it up or chase the 
fairer sex; those mixers just wouldn't be the 
same without him. He is now reverently re- 
ferred to as the "professor" by the many vic- 
tims of profs and Stats I and II. His conscien- 
tious attention to detail and his motto "If it's 
not perfect, then it's not good enough," will 
prove invaluable to him when he meets the 
fleet in 1972. 


Roka came to us via Plainview, New York. 
Fresh out of high school, he claimed he was too 
naive to know any better and found his way to 
USNA. During his first two years at Navy, 
Rok has been the proud recipient of three N's, 
two black, one gold. An ardent follower of 
girls, music, and a connoisseur of wine, his 
main interests while here have been as a mem- 
ber of the lacrosse team and the 2.0001 Club. 
He infrequently mentions service selection, not 
likinjf to plan too far into the future, but has 
been overheard saying, "Go Navv Line, a hitch 
of five will now save you nine.' 



Don came to us from a very small town in 
the wilds of Minnesota. He's not claiming it's 
the smallest, but when you only have 67 in 
your graduating class you don't exactly have a 
metropolis. Not wishing to go right back to the 
books, he decided on a tour in Navy. After 
about 4 weeks of boot camp, he decided the 
books weren't as bad as he nad thought. The 
next thing he knew, he was proceeding 
through a very gloomy 9 months at NAPS. 
Upon arrival of the academic year Don was 
grieved with the fact that he would never be a 
Trident Scholar. As time wore on, Don decided 
that the only service selection possible was 
Navy Line.

Salty Sull came to Annapolis via points ap- 
proaching infinity. However, by 2/c year, Mo- 
oile, Alabama claimed a good portion of his 
thoughts, as his family settled down to await 
graduation. Sull found a haven in the Foreign 
Affairs Department to protect his disinterest 
in differentials and higher heating valves, di- 
recting his studies to the Far East. Living with 
a Russian Jew, he understandably developed a 
suspicion to bagels and Nyet toothpaste 
shipped in from the Midwest . . . aviation 
began to look great as the Iceman dwindled to 
a big puddle when Big Red of Pensacola came 
onto the scene to dispel rumors of a permanent 
frost in Bancroft Hall . . . graduation will see 
him making a quick decision as he finds a fu- 
ture in the Navy. 


John is the Academy's representative from 
Greensboro, North Carolina. Never known to 
be a studious type of person, John managed to 
always have good grades by the end of each se- 
mester. After joining the Gun Club, weekends 
often found John out hunting, one of his favor- 
ite pastimes. Brigade boxing claimed John 
during the winter sports set. John's easygoing 
manner has helped earn him a lot of good 
friends during his stay at the Academy. Pres- 
ently undecided about service selection, John is 
interested in aviation. Whatever his career 
choice, John's energy and drive will undoubt- 
edly lead him to success. 


A devoted son of the South, Andy hails from 
somewhere called East Point, Georgia. Al- 
though Navy's call to duty has demanded his 
relocation in the somewhat-more northern en- 
vironment of Annapolis, his loyalty to the 
Rebel cause is affirmed by the Stars and Bars 
draped above his most sacred possession, his 
bed. Arriving here in the summer of '68 as a 
shining example of innocence and purity, Andy 
quickly realized the error and futility in such a 
life. Having since been initiated in the joys of 
sin, Wilkie now even goes so far as to date an 
occasional girl — one in particular. Sports and 
studies take up most of his efforts, but even 
with his ever losing war against Navy academ- 
ics Andy finds time to wander from room to 
room looking for a good bull session — or 
maybe just company m his misery. Get ready 
TBS, here comes another Marine. 


A native of nowhere and a one time resident 
of everywhere, Al came to USNA looking for 
a place to sail and sail is what he has done. He 
could be found riding the waves on the Chesa- 
peake any afternoon and most weekends when 
the weather was nice, especially during parade 
season because of his allergy to marching. No- 
torious for the few watches he was tricked into 
standing, Al managed not to make a big thing 
of it. A willing participant in any study hour, 
extracurricular activity he somehow managed 
not to lose any races with the academic depart- 
ment, although he had some close scrapes. A 
strong believer that "Navy Line is mighty 
fine," Al is looking forward to his years with 
the fleet.

"Waldo," as he was known to all, hails from 
Dracut, Mass. With a little help from his class- 
mates, he soon discovered the letter "R" and 
began to pick up a bit of the real English lan- 
guage. Striving to complete a double major in 
Physics and Math, "B-robe" was a permanent 
member of the Dean's List and was occasional- 
ly, with a little slack from the company officer, 
on the Sup's List too. Most study hours were 
spent on others' homework, though Waldo was 
willing to take on any challenger in a late 
night wrestling match. The chow caller could 
find him in the rack daily at 1820, as Waldo 
was never one to let a free afternoon go wast- 
ed. Destined to the nuclear Navy upon gradua- 
tion, Waldo will leave behind many friends to 
fulfill a promising career. 


Craig coming straight from a year long 
party at Penn State, spent his Plebe year 
playmg squash and tennis on the Plebe teams, 
nis Youngster year he found himself the Com- 
pany Sub-Commander. At the beginning of 2/c 
Summer he picked up the nickname "Camou- 
flage Cover, which was often heard resound- 
ing across the open mess in Pensacola. We 
don't know if it was Amsterdam or Paris, but 
his return from leave was the beginning of the 
"new look" it) "Camouflage." He thought he 
was 20 minutes early, but was really 220 min- 
utes late over leave. Three months later, his 
camouflage momentarily fading, Craig picked 
up his second Black "N, ' in an attempt to im- 
prove the appearance of the Brigade. To 
Craig's relief and many others, Cody Graver 
was not caught. Always wanting to fly, it will 
be interesting to see what Craig chooses, but 
no matter which way he goes, he will be an 
outstanding naval officer. 


Pat came to us from Canton, Ohio, where he 
learned to play the football that has made him 
a standout on our 150 lb. football team. In ad- 
dition, to his N* for beating Army Youngster 
year, Pat has a nice Black "N" received for 
meritorious action in an attempt to serve his 
fellow midshipmen. The Brigade walks with 
Pat, most people know Pat by the name "Pig 
Pen," but really, that's an unfair nickname. 
It's not his fault that there's never been a pair 
of pants made to fit his "stumpy" legs. Pat is 
known by everybody, liked by most, and we're 
bound to hear of him, and his organizational 
abilities in the not too distant future. Long live 
Cody Graver!

Bods (Rick?), an import from Canada, sailed 
into Annapolis leaving the life of a Sea Cadet 
behind in Connecticut. The professional main- 
stay of our company. Bods has read every 
gunge book from Knotting and Splicing to 
The Modern Soviet Navy, and it looks like it 
will all pay off when he makes way into nucle- 
ar power school and a career in the submarine 
fleet. Although his only varsity sport was 
swimming sub-squad. Rods saw a lot of action 
in fieldball, soccer and rugby. Bods was a con- 
firmed bachelor — in spite of all the "married" 
men around him — and chances are, he will al- 
ways stay that way. As a charter member of 
Sigma Epsilon with a copy of Proceedings 
under one arm and a can of Pledge under the 
other, Bods seems to be on the way to wearing 
lots of big gold stripes in the years ahead. 


Hank, the name by which he is best known, 
originally from Manteca, Calif., is now a proud 
resident of the thriving metropolis of North 
Platte, Neb. He will probably be remembered 
most for his uncanny ability to be gross, no 
matter what the situation. When he wasn't 
sleeping (during libs, of course), he could usu- 
ally be found dragging Pam, his OAO. While 
at the Academy Hank has distinguished him- 
self in Math, his chosen field of study, and also 
as the only member of the Brigade to be fried 
for wearing a red "Mountie" hat in Batt(O). He 
has been able to preserve his bulk, which he 
"carries well" by vigorous participation in soc- 
cer and fieldball. For service selection Hank 
has expressed interest in either surface Navy 
or joinmg the men in green, to whom he is af- 
fectionately known as "Bo-Peep," a result of 
his excursions during 2/c Summer. Whichever 
Hank finally decides on, we're sure the naval 
service will have a fine officer. 


If first impressions ever meant anything, 
"Denny" was instantly a loser from the very 
start of Plebe summer when he was dubbed 
"Droopy," but Denny was an instant success as 
he continued in the perfectionist ways picked 
up, in of all places, Scotch Plains, New Jersey. 
The true "Total man" at Navy Denny has been 
on Sup's List and Dean's List throughout his 
"Navy" career. He is a varsity athlete, being a 
member of the pistol team and is one of those 
rare individuals known as a born leader, for 
Denny is looked up to and admired by all who 
are privileged enough to know him. AH that is 
left to say is "Watch out world!" For Denny 
will truly leave his mark. 


"The Ferg" beeped to Annapolis cross coun- 
try from the Placentia (Calif.) bus depot and 
exchang;ed his mouseketeer ears for a dixie 
cup with a smile. Mr. "cool and handsome" 
amazed everyone by getting stars after a me- 
diocre Plebe year. Kevin's level-headedness 
has led some of us to believe that he was tak- 
ing his anxieties out on the oars over at the 
Boat House. Known in the Accounting Depart- 
ment as the "CPA," although he would have 
preferred to have been known as the C.P.O., 
Ferg's affinity for spit, polish, and other mat- 
ters assure success in his service selection un- 
derway, underwater. 


Fleeing from the logging town of Eureka, 
California in June of 68 "Ragman" found a 
home at Navy where he spent his days compil- 
ing QPR's and stroking on the Severn. His 
Physics major never gave him more trouble 
than he cared to take and his excellence in 
studies was rewarded by membership to Sigma 
Pi Sigma as well as the Sup's and Dean's Lists. 
Known around the Boat House as "The Flash" 
he could always be seen taking leisurely jaunts 
up the stadium steps or riding one of Navy's 
crew shells. Quiet yet precise. Tie possesses the 
qualities that are essential to command and a 
successful future in the naval service. Tom and 
the submarine fleet should prove a fine combi- 
nation to the service of our country, and the 
depreciation of its submarines. 


"Hoss" came to the Academy from "God's 
Country" (his term) or Ambler, Penn., where 
hunting, fishing and boating kept him busy. 
His great love of the ocean and of nature has 
led him into the field of Oceanography here at 
the Academy in which he has excelled but an 
even greater love of the fairer sex has led him 
into even more interesting fields. Hoss has 
worked hard to get his nickname by playing 
varsity football Plebe and Segundo years and 
filling the time in between with company 
fieldball and other contact sports. He has left 
his mark on many of his opponents. Hoss' ex- 
ceptional attitude towards life and the Navy 
has gained him the friendship and respect of 
everyone who knows him. The fleet will re- 
ceive a very exceptional guy.

Arriving at USNA fresh out of high school 
in Texas, Bubba, as his family calls him but 
more commonly known around the hall as "L. 
D." (low down) has become the de facto cap- 
tain of the USNA drinking team. Nelson and 
his co-captain Charley Rucks could be seen on 
many a Saturday night tripping on back to the 
hall after a long bout with the bottle and the 
local cuties. When not in the pad or grooving 
to some deep soul music in his "crib ' (room) 
you could catch him in the pool showing how 
he passed his 400 m'ile swim with 3 seconds to 
spare. Nelson intends to become a lawyer and 
on the way to that goal, he should become an 
outstanding naval officer. 


Nick the Greek probably ran to Annapolis 
from Mahopac, N. Y. on the first day of Plebe 
Summer — and he's been running ever since. 
Although often hampered by mono, pulled 
hamstrings, and sprained ankles, Nick has 
proved to be one of Navy's most outstanding 
track and cross country runners. The rest of 
his time was devoted to running — trips all 
over the East Coast for track meets made Nick 
pretty scarce for most of his four years at 
Navy. When "The Stick" hits the fleet with his 
track shoes in one hand and his guitar in the 
other, the Navy will be gaining an excellent 
young officer and a really cool dude. 


Rod, or Mac as he is called by all who know 
him, made his way to the Academy from our 
fiftieth state. There was, however, one inter- 
mediate stop at NAPS. Physically, he is always 
a fierce competitor playing intramural soccer, 
fieldball, and tennis. Mac's first love, however, 
has been and always will be surfing. Reminis- 
cing about surfing, Hawaii, and the good ole 
days occupied his mind many evenings. Aca- 
demically, he is working towards a Systems 
Engineering degree. The fly boys will un- 
doubtedly be receiving a fine officer after his 
temporary stay aboard the rolling decks of a 
destroyer. Rod will always win the friendship 
and respect of those he meets as he has with all 
of us.

The "Flash" hails from Winter Park, Flori- 
da, where he was raised from early childhood. 
Being an outstanding athlete in high school, 
his natural abilities carried over to Plebe and 
varsity track where his record in the 60 yard 
dash still holds. An extremely determined mdi- 
vidual, Glenn managed to hack his way 
through the fog, confusion, and his own pro- 
found logic to somehow scrape together the re- 
quired 2.0. His ceaseless supply of mail from 
females far and wide always amazed us all, 
and it seems as though he was forever track- 
ing down an album someone, he usually had 
forgotten who, had borrowed from the vast 
collection. The Navy will certainly welcome 
this outstanding officer to the fleet. 


Jim, or "Klims" as he is better known, hails 
from Bethesda, Md. where he graduated from 
high school as a football and baseball jock. 
Here at the Academy he continued his athletic 
prowess by contributing to the regimental 
winning "heavies." Although a devoted Man- 
agement student, Jim was never one to let aca- 
demics interfere with pad time — still he man- 
aged to keep his head above water, which is 
more than he could do in swimming classes. 
But one thing about Jim is certain, wherever 
there is a crowd or party, listen for the loudest 
voice (or snort) and he will be there. Jim will 
always be most remembered for his over- 
whelming enthusiasm for the Redskins, Vince 
and Sonny, or the Senators and Ted Williams. 
It looks like the Porkchops are clawing Jim but 
wherever he goes he will be a great success 
and a tremendous officer. (Love and Kisses, 
Hoss and Mac). 


Steve hails from the soybean capital of the 
world, (Land of Lincoln if you ask him) Deca- 
tur, 111. His even mannered temperament is fa- 
mous throughout the class. A hard worker and 
a successful 3.0 buster on occasion, he still 
finds time for his favorite activity, shooting 
the breeze, to the tune of about 20 hours a day. 
His love of jazz is overshadowed only by his 
hatred of "acid rock." An avid reader, he also 
specializes in other fields, such as holding the 
record for hamburgers eaten, and being the 
most successful buff shoeshiner in the Brigade. 
He enjoys sports, and can be found in the 
weight room when not in the rack. Steve plans 
on Navy Line, preferably on a DLG, to begin 
his career, with law school the goal of the fu- 
ture. His drive, common sense and affinity for 
hard work assure the Navy of a fine officer. 


No stranger to the ways of USNA, "the son 
of a preacher man" docked in Annapolis at his 
ETA and heeding the good advice of his father 
and brother, signed in before he went on liber- 
ty. Aside from spending four years trying to 
decide whether he wanted to be like Adm. 
Hornblower or Chet Atkins, his only major cri- 
sis befell him in an existential crescendo as "to 
sleep or not to sleep"; and for which he always 
viewed himself as a tragic figure. Despite all 
this Bob was a big success, and to anyone who 
knew him he was one of the most sincere and 
honest men he has had the pleasure of calling 
his friend. Bob's talent and versatility will in- 
sure his success wherever he goes. 


Chip (or Rudy as he is often called), hails 
from Oxford, Ohio, where he was in football 
and track star at Talawanda High School and 
an avid fan of Miami (0) arriving here. He is 
the son of an Academy grad, a Marine Colonel, 
Class of '27 and the USNA gym team captain 
(Chip of course was a varsity member of the 
gym sub squad). Upon graduation he plans to 
take his commission in his father's footsteps in 
the Corps. Chip is one of the few men who will 
be able to look back on tea fights with satisfac- 
tion for there his luck was with him and he 
met a fantastic girl and she probably will be 
the only really good thing to ever happen to 
him at the Academy. 


A true hulk of a man, Shelly, as he came to 
be known, made his appearance on the first 
day of Plebe summer, long hair. Long Island 
accent and all. For the rest of the summer he 
was almost a phantom, known only to those 
who ran some of the innumerable hours of 
E.D. he accumulated with him. After Plebe 
year participation in football and lacrosse 
Shelly became a permanent fixture in the 
weight room. All his work paid off and he 
managed 4.00's on several A.S. and mile run 
tests while fighting a constant battle with the 
Academic Dept. to keep his head above water. 
Despite changing his major from Aero to Po- 
litical Science, he still hopes to fly (maybe in 
Marine green, rather than Navy blue) wherev- 
er he goes. Shelly's cheerfulness, sincerely and 
loyalty are sure to leave an impression as big 
as the man himself.

Protz strolled into USNA from Hampton, 
Virginia and quickly proved his aptitude for 
the rigors of Plebe summer by putting on a 
hefty 30 pounds before Parents' Weekend. Re- 
membered as the guy who always got carry-on 
for his football posters, J. A. managed to grab 
a few extra Friday night liberty hours as a 
member of Masqueraders during his Freshman 
year. Finding no difficulty to star in academ- 
ics, Protz has been running 440's for varsity 
track since Youngster year. Protz has indicat- 
ed his love of Navy line by vowing to get a bil- 
let as Soda Fountain Officer on a carrier for 
Ensign Cruise. Af^r that, look for him in the 
Intelligence Corps or putting his French sa- 
voir-faire to use m a Paris Embassy. Wherever 
he is assigned, the Navy can count on top per- 
formance from this man. 


"Jay Omega Gorp" rolled into USNA with 
his beer mug in one hand, and his tool kit in 
the other. Finding no use for the mug, he 
benched it and, after overcoming the "DT's" 
and Plebe year simultaneously, he and his tool 
box made a reputation for themselves in the 
Wires Department. Able to go sans sleep for 
days on end, he can also fall asleep at any time, 
any place, in less than one minute. "If you lie 
awake for more than 15 seconds, you're wast- 
ing your time," he says. Come graduation, he 
will reactivate the mug, and with tool kit and 
240Z in tow, will inflict himself upon the "Path 
of least, resistance," the surface Navy. 


Hailing from the dark coal fields of Pennsyl- 
vania, the Shamokin kid decided to attend 
USNA after a year at NAPS. Never one to be 
reserved, Mike could always be counted on for 
a joke or a brawl, whichever fit the occasion. 
Even though a fierce competitor, Mike sacri- 
ficed academic stars only to lose a long run- 
ning bout with that vicious Navy pad monster. 
Occasionally he found time to run a booming 
ski lodge in Shamokin while giving explicit in- 
structions on disembarking from a ski lift — 
using the breaststroke. Next he was captain of 
his own team against Army in 1970. "Wheels" 
is sure to make a hit wherever this one ends up 
— a true competitor and "The Corrector" to 
the end.

Randy Rice, who hails from Kingsford, 
Michigan snowmobiled to Navy and was quick- 
ly named "Sugar Bear" for his teddy-bear-like 
appearance and bloodshot eyes (hay fever?). 
Sugar Bear spent all his spare time, 8 days a 
week, in his blue cave. Whenever asked where 
Randy was, one was always told, "hibernat- 
ing." USNA managed to corrupt Randy and 
the "sugar" part of his nickname was dropped. 
Two of Bear's honies lived a few blocks apart 
and when asked about the inevitable outcome 
of the situation, Randy just gave his favorite 
saying, "Wait and see, wait and see." Sworn 
against grunts and definitely not going air 
(who else throws up at the sight of a T-28?), 
Bear will either go subs or find himself on a 
"steady, non-pitching aircraft carrier"). With 
his attitude of "What's a little lint gonna 
hurt?" "Don't worry about it," or "Let's hit the 
pad, Dad," the Bear will no doubt make it 
wherever he is hibernating for the winter. 


Willie (Oscar) skied off of Jay Peak into the 
22nd Co. right out of high school. Being an 
M.E. major, he threw a fake at the Dean's List 
but then cut back into the 2.0 and out crowd. 
He got off to a good start by falling asleep 
during his French validation test. Deciding 
Plebe year that he did not like standing watch- 
es, he started assigning them (under the 
watchful eye of dirtball and gorpo). 2/c year 
saw Oscar at Friday Clippers games more 
often than not, and BAC projects saw him ab- 
sent from march-ons and Saturday classes just 
as often. Hating boats from the beginning, 
Oscar is a good candidate for CEC since avia- 
tion has flown out the window. A great sense 
of humor will serve to make friends for Willie 
wherever the Navy takes him. 


Toby hails from 'little Italy' or better known 
to its inhabitants as Lyndhurst, N. J. Erik 
came to the Academy and quickly fell right in 
the groove. His hard work and sweat earned 
him stripes and a pair of stars for his blue ser- 
vice. Tooy came to the Academy with only one 
thing to live for but a trip to Spain his 2/c 
summer changed everything. While in Spain 
he got lost in the Honolulu House and almost 
lost his flesh. The company was more than 
happy to have him back to quarterback the 
ligntweights and hit like mighty mouse in batt. 
rugby. His spare time was usually spent in the 
library or his sleeping bag and sometimes look- 
ing for field mice in the basement. No matter 
what Toby has done or will do it will always be 
his best effort and in Aero Space Engineering 
he will climb the new heights. 


Den came to the Academy a Calif, boy at 
heart. Cobra and all. After a year's bivouac in 
the sticks of Oklahoma, Denny adjusted to 
Navy life with ease! Being an individualist his 
antico usually accounted for his high standing 
in the demo category. An aviation buff from 
the very beginning, it was close to impossible 
to contain his wrath when faced with the pos- 
sibility of two years on the high seas as a black 
shoe. Den, a stellar athlete picked up a lacrosse 
stick and fell right in with the group. He was 
instrumental in 4th Batt's domination of the 
sport for several years. An Aero major, there 
is no doubt he will be a dedicated Navy flyer, if 
he doesn't drown on the way. 


Arriving at USNA eager and full of life 
from Staten Island, N. Y., Pet* immediately 
earned from the upper class the affectionate 
name "Dick Wick. ' Throughout his stay at 
Navy his time was devoted to 2 of his 3 loves, 
baseoall and history. And the characteristic 
that will forever endear him in the hearts of 
others is his amazingly enthusiastic and timely 
conversations at morning meal. Always willing 
to help a friend in need he could be found any- 
time of the day or night giving advice that left 
one wondering whether it was more beneficial 
than not. Pete's probable service selection is 
surface line and if his quick wit and personali- 
ty follow him he will be a welcome addition to 
any wardroom. 


C. C. wheeled into USNA on the running 
board of his fleetside pickup, along with a 
Rebel yell, from Pea Ridge, Tennessee. He 
soon found he could be as comfortable with the 
Eastern establishment as he could with the 
■Tennessee Vols, and that a martini will get the 
job done as well as moonshine. Life was not 
without its serious side with Clarence, howev- 
er, as his struggles with "Navy this and Nauti- 
cal that" were to prove. However, being one to 
accentuate the positive, Clarence always found 
time to indulge in his favorite pastimes, read- 
ing and shooting the breeze, well into the 
morning. His Southern hospitality proved the 
nemesis of nine roommates, but his gentle 
manner and even temper will insure success in 
the fleet and along any path he chooses to

Carl, commonly known as "Akes" by his 
classmates, has always had many friends. His 
one friend that never turned on him and al- 
ways cheered him up when things were look- 
ing dim is the dollar bill. Akes has always 
worked hard to earn money, from playing 
cards 'till the wee hours of the morning, to 
guessing the results of this week's football 
games. He went out for Plebe football, and 
played for the 4th Battalion in his upper class 
years. In addition to football, he holds distinc- 
tions for devotion to the varsity swimming sub 
squad team and holding the speed record for 
driviag in the yard. Carl will be a credit to the 
naval service upon graduation. King of the 
"wheeler-dealers" and the Charter House 
parties, Akes will always be remembered by 
his classmates at the Naval Academy. 


A native of Riverside, California, Jeff left 
behind the scantily-clad bathing beauties of 
Southern California to come to the fun and sun 
capital of Maryland. Quickly adjusting to the 
new atmosphere, Jeff excelled in academics 
and made Dean's List handily. Though sam- 
pling a wide variety of athletics and being an 
enthusiastic "war-game" player, Jeff still 
found time to manhandle Ops Analysis and his 
share of fragile ferns. "Beeps" was known for 
his warm heart and open pocketbook and often 
provided his less knowledgeable classmates 
with sorely needed E.I. Leaning toward nucle- 
ar power, Jeff will shake up the Navy no mat- 
ter which branch he enters, with his sense of 
humor and dedication, he will be a big plus in 
any branch of the naval service. 


While moving around a lot in his youth, 
being an Air Force brat, Scott has finally set- 
tled in D. C. and then came to USNA from 
Culver Military Academy. His nicknames 
Bronto, Squatty, Dancing Bear, Brown Eye, 
etc., and his many "loves" were almost as 
many and varied as his activities. Some of 
these were varsity heavyweight crew, class 
secretary, scuba club, and folk singing. The 
dedication with which he pursued crew and his 
other activities made many of us wonder how 
he found time for all of them and still manage 
to stay above that magic academic number. 
His "sparkling personality and brown eyes," 
plus his overall vivacious attitude about life 
will leave an indelible imprint in our memories. 
After graduation, if the fleet can stand his 
puns, they just might let him continue on to 
get his wings. There he should be a welcome 
addition, because when Scott was around 
things were always "lighter."

Bod had the rare distinction of keeping his 
original girl through four years of Navy. In 
fact, he even managed to come up with a sec- 
ond grease girl. Wisely shunning the easy life, 
Barry left the University of Vermont and Aca- 
cia fraternity after only one year. Then, Plebe 
summer, he soon shook the nickname "light- 
bulb" and became "105 pounds of twisted steel 
impervious to rust, women, and booze." Al- 
though Barry chose the not-so-fruit curricu- 
lum of a Math major, he fought it through 
without too much trouble. Some of his favorite 
hangouts were the rack, the intramural tennis 
courts, the Red Beach, and the 4th Wing base- 
ment squash courts during early morning 
darkness. He also contributed and established 
himself as nearly unquenchable member of the 
Charter House Gang. Above all, Bod always 
proved to be dedicated to making the Naval 
Academy "work" and to his girl. Whichever 
service he selects will gain a capable leader 
and a good man. 


James "Jungle Jim" Bradley, the Georgia 
j Peach, came to the enormous confines of 
I Mother "B" from thriving megapolitan Tho- 
masville, Georgia, where he was to Bradley 
Enterprises what the Edsel was to Ford. Be- 
ginning with the Plebe summer talent show 
when he found "a little black speck" in his 
milk, Jim became known as the master of b.s. 
Despite, or maybe because of this, he found his 
academic home in the Political Science Depart- 
ment. Though politics was his first interest, 
the magic of wires and Engineering made it as 
easy for Jim to make the Dean's List as it 
would have been to fly the Kiwi bail-out-train- 
er in Pensacola. Sports were a different mat- 
ter, however, as he began Plebe year by lead- 
ing his company basketball team in scoring. 
Squash, tennis, and golf saw their share of Jim 
too, but his first sports love was always a pair 
of water skis on a warm south Georgia river. 
On graduation day, Jim will try out a new 
sport, playing the Navy Game. Good luck, Jim. 


Steve Claw Hossier Fo-Fo-Man Clawson 
came to Navy in search of a way in which he 
could contribute his countless talents to the 
naval service. Never seeming to be satisfied 
unless he was involved with one of his many 
extracurricular activities (especially his partic- 
ipation with the Log), with his handball en- 
deavors, or with his pursuit of Dean's List rec- 
ognition in his Foreign Affairs major. Claw 
was almost always compelled to put in many 
late nights at work with his bottle (or no-doz). 
Steve's intellect has always allowed him to ex- 
pound on the issues of the present, past, and 
future, and which has never failed him in his 
approach to women. Steve's future is bound 
for success with the naval service as a Public 
Affairs specialist. 


Ces, a native Italian, came to the Naval 
Academy from North Plainfield, New Jersey. 
Abandoning his switchblade and leather jack- 
et, he quickly became an integral part of the 
Brigade, however, he can be remembered best 
because of his "Joysie" lingo and vivid vocabu- 
lary. His tremendous swimming ability made 
him a confirmed lover of the "baby pool," how- 
ever, he has found time to concentrate his ef- 
forts to the company soccer and fieldball 
teams where he has proven to be quite a com- 
petitive and hard working individual. He is 
currently pursuing a major in Management 
with an interest in the Italian language and 
culture. His easygoing attitude yet dedication 
to the service will make Ces a credit to the Ma- 
rine Corps.

Upon graduation from Huguenot High 
School in Richmond, Virginia, Dick entered tne 
Academy and the Navy. Despite a rigorous 
Plebe year, he found time to go on numerous 
Glee Club trips, sing in Chapel Choir, and work 
diligently as a Stage Gang member and 
Masquerader. With the time left over you 
might find him working with computers, his 
second love, studying his major. Math, or going 
to Richmond to see his first true love. Despite 
his numerous and varied activities, Dick man- 
aged to wear stars occasionally and always 
found time to help a classmate in need. An en- 
ergetic and diligent person, he will be a wel- 
comed addition to any wardroom. With his 
deep interest and love for computers and aca- 
demics, Dick's contribution to to the submarine 
service will certainly be of high degree. His 
greatest contribution, however, will be his 
cheerful spirit and willingness to work until 
the job is done. 


Art proved indisputably that there is indeed 
a Milford, New Jersey. Coming out of the 
backwoods. Art already had formed a set of 
values that was to hold him in good stead — 
popcorn is good, studying is bad. Art's three 
great loves, his pad, his popcorn popper and his 

firl were always on his mind. An all state foot- 
all player in high school. Art played company 
soccer, fieldball and Softball like they were all 
tackle football. Always able to express himself, 
Art could usually be found destroying someone 
in fieldball. Art was a member of that rare 
breed of mids, stripers who wore a "Black N," 
landing on Supt's List, Art, a History major, 
steadily met the Academic Department head 
on and won. You could always count on Art to 
help you out if you were in a jam, he would 
give you the shirt off of his back or the pop- 
corn out of his popper. Choosing the Corps for 
his service, Art is sure to make an outstanding 



Del came to the dark confines of Bancroft 
Hall from the sunny beaches of California, via 
NAPS. Once here, he quickly learned that 
there is an easy way to do everything. Even 
Plebe year, he neveloped a fine sense of priori- 
ties and never let academics interfere with 
girls, cars, sports, and most of all, sleep. A 
selfadmitted "gpft to the fair sex," the week- 
ends usually found him looking for an opportu- 
nity to apply the "moves" he learned on the 
varsity wrestling mats or at a party lifting 12 
oz. weights with his right arm. Also a member 
of the "Cannoneers" Dei spent many a long 
Saturday afternoon waiting for one of those 
rare occasions when it was necessary to fire 
the cannon. Even with his busy weekends, Del 
has found time to run the Class Ring and Crest 
Committee and complete an Analytical Man- 
agement major with flying colors. When that 
long awaited day in June arrives, the Navy is 
sure to gain another fine officer.

Rick came to the Navy from Wheeling, West 
Virginia, eager for fun and a good time. He 
quickly found USNA was his kind of place, a 
party school. The athletic type. Rick tried his 
hand at numerous sports until he found his 
place in company intramurals. Known to his 
friends as Dropkick, Drawback, Rad and oth- 
ers, he was always the life of the party with a 
quick wit and unusual sense of humor. It took 
one short set of YP's to convince Rick his fu- 
ture had to be in the surface Navy. Lean and 
mean, a tj'pical greyhound, Rick will certainly 
be an asset to any ship and with his adopted 
motto, "Be Happy in Your Work," he will inev- 
itably be a success in all endeavors. 


Fred came from California via NAPS. In 
cramming four years into five, by the grace of 
God, he managed to stop seeing his name on 
the Academic Board list and finally saw it ap- 
pear on the Sup's List. Mother "B" has left un- 
changed many of his traits. He continues to 
run cross country, study hard, enjoy people, at- 
tend OCU, and fail an occasional test. Between 
weekend studies and Christmas leaves in the 
hall, Fred always found time to share with his 
"little brothers' and his OAO, often simultane- 
ously. When June 7th comes, he'll have finally 
reached one of his "impossible dreams," gradu- 
ation and commissioning. His sincere interest 
in Oceanography, scuba, and his love of the sea 
will make him a robust naval officer. Never- 
theless, the well being of his subordinates and 
peers will never be below his dignity. His de- 
termination and willingness to work hard and 
help anyone will certainly make him an asset 
to any wardroom. 


Jeff brought to Navy a way of life that ei- 
ther won close friends or made bitter enemies. 
His friends kept him well stocked in encour- 
agement while his enemies maintained a 
steady flow of bad 54A's making him a regular 
attraction in the batt. conference room. Seem- 
ingly, the only mid to go 4 years without a 
class, he was the master of the Youngster 
morning. Youngster afternoon, and take-it-in- 
at-8 study hour. When not cruising the bay in 
his beloved YP's, afternoons found him either 
trying to flail himself to death in a squash 
court or dreaming of his West Coast love. 
Known affectionately as the "Goose" he never 
let his feathers get seriously ruffled though 
several were lost during "crashes" at the Char- 
ter House. Having passed an interview with 
the venerable Mr. Kickover, he promises to 
bootleg into the fleet his own vintage of pro- 
fessionalism and ingenuity. Though USNA is 
losing its first goose, Cucamonga is gaining its 
first Admiral. 


"Timmy" came straight from the beautiful 
farmlands of Michigan. Though raised out of 
touch with the big city, Tim is by no means out 
of touch with having a good time. At parties 
he excels in not only holding his own brew, but 
also his less stable classmates on their way 
back to Mother "B." Tim is desired by many of 
the fair sex but in "most" cases he turns his at- 
tention to his future bride who patiently waits 
at home (he hopes). In the warmer months 
after a hard weekend Tim could usually be 
found relaxing in the Reflection Pool. Tim can 
also turn his attention to serious endeavors 
and be counted on to come through high in the 
rankings. His major is Ocean Engineering and 
his interest in sports has ranged from boxing 
to batt crew (Brigade champs). Tim is well 
liked and respected by all who know him and 
will be sure to go a long way in whichever di- 
rection he chooses.

Bill came to the corridors of Bancroft Hall 
straight from the "good ole" cotton fields of 
Clarksdale, Mississippi. The Naval Academy 
tore "Willy" away from the sun, skiing and 
Southern belles, giving him a bald head and a 
dixie cup to cover it in return. A real party 
man, he has thrown a good number himself 
and has been in the spotlight of many others. 
Willy was always one of the most feared in the 
ring especially for his "look the other way, 
then blast 'em in the head" punch. No one 
could ever forget the man with the most stub- 
born ways imaginable, even to the point of 
arguing with the weather and the radio. With 
Bill's confidence in himself and his ability to 
influence people, he will be a welcome addition 
to the naval service. 


"Hops," true to his name, a hopping and 
bubbling personality, hails from East Liver- 
pool, Ohio. Bill, a master of procrastination, 
would be found continually in the stomach of 
the pad monster, but he always made his room- 
mates feel right at home because he made the 
room look "lived in." And late Saturday nights, 
the hall echoed with "I'm all right, fellas, real- 
ly I ami" Many afternoons would find Bill 
struggling hard to earn his Varsity "N" in 
swimming sub squad. True to the call of the 
sea, saying with great conviction, "Navy line is 
mighty fine," Bill will be joining the fleet 
after graduation as a black shoe regular. As 
many of us here know. Bill will be a great suc- 
cess and a welcome addition to the fleet. Good 
luck in the future. Hops! 


Coming to the Academy straight from high 
school in Batesville, Mississippi, Sel was 
shocked by his initial exposure to Academy 
life. He quickly adjusted to the rigors of Navy 
and started adjusting the Academy to his life 
style. Always on the go, you have a tough time 
keeping up with this Southern gentleman. 
Whether in intramural sports where he's a 
member and mainstay oi the fieldball, batt 
wrestling and weightlifting teams or just 
quaffing a friendly brew at a Charter House 
Rally, he's where the action is. Sel spends his 
study hours hard at work on his Aero major 
(after all some prof might try to steal his 
stars), but he can be counted on for invaluable 
contributions at nightly B.S. or rally 'round 
the pad sessions. Away from the Academy, Sel 
shifts into hi^h gear on an extracurricular pro- 
gram consistmg of fast cars, girls, and relax- 
mg (?) weekends. After some duty in Aviation 
line, graduation will find Sel storming the 
white sands and sunny skies of Pensacola, 
where he is sure to be at the top in both the 
flight program and Ready Room hours logged.

Jim felt his first love for the sea during 
Youngster year when he tasted the wonderful 
waters of the Chesapeake Bay as a participant 
of the company knockabout team. He felt his 
second and third love for the sea the same year 
under the same circumstances. Jim hails from 
Annandale, Va. where he resided until he came 
to Navy. Then his folks surprised him and 
moved to Utah. The son of Mr. and Mrs. Ed- 
ward J. Hoffmann, Jim has one brother and 
one sister. We will never forget Jim's efforts 
in the Scuba Club ordering, organizing, and 
the early morning teaching of bright-eyed stu- 
dents. Besides scuba, crew and knockabouts 
Jim occupied his time by spending endless 
hours working for a master's in Double "Z." 
He operated on the theory that QPR was di- 
rectly proportional to rack time. Navy may 
never see another surface liner like Jim again. 


Lloyd came to the banks of the Severn 
straight out of Schulenburg High School and 
the wide open spaces of Texas. He started in 
Plebe football, won his numerals, and then de- 
cided to devote his efforts toward academics. 
He soon found himself on the Sup's List and 
eventually the Dean's List. Lloyd enjoyed the 
contact sports — football, fieldball and rugby. 
But off the field he would occasionally be 
found dragging the fairer sex in the person of 
our beloved Mrs. "M." This was one of his 
duties as a Brigade Hop Committee member 
for four years. If that didn't keep him down he 
could always turn to his major. Mechanical En- 
gineering, for countless hours of struggle with 
solids, thermo and fluids. Lloyd's desire and 
willingness to work make him a fine contribu- 
tion to Navy line for a year or two and then, 
hopefully. Navy air. 



"Mac" came to Navy from Winston-Salem, 
N. C. nipping a great career of hell-raising in 
the bud. Beginning Plebe summer Bob began 
the transition from a cuddly little kuala bear 
into a hard, disciplined military machine. After 
deciding that was no course for him, he began 
to concentrate on more important things, like 
scuba diving, sharp clothes, and girls. All his 
time was not taken up with good times, for 
Bob was one of those foolhardy souls who 
chose "wires" as his major. "Mac" had many 
outstanding characteristics among them his 
moral standards, his imitation of a Jaguar 
XKE, his little blue date book (valued at mil- 
lions!) and last but not least, the "N" star he 
shaved in his chest. Bob loves animals and al- 
ways had plenty of the little devils tagging 
along. Settmg his sights on a Jaguar XKE and 
gold wings. Bob should go far in Navy air. 


George, who calls Wisconsin home, but the 
water his environment came to the Academy 
from the Navy's finishing school in Bain- 
bridge, Maryland. Plebe year was not quite his 
bag. He was caught with a radio he had had 
since Parents' Weekend and wore fake ties to 
class. The pattern continued as did the years, 
for George was known as the company barber 
and many a hot cup of coffee could be found in 
George's shop. When the weekends rolled 
around so did he. He was either on YP trips, 
choir trips or playing Mike Nelson on scuba 
trips. He managed to take his regular week- 
ends to see his girl and MGB. Scuba was 
George's first love and his area of greatest 
competence. Despite a 2.1 QPR, George will be 
a welcomed addition to the fleet bringing with 
him patience and understanding with his 
greatest asset of being sincere and having a 
deep desire to serve his country. 


Well, we were a little suspicious of Mark 
from the very beginning. At the Superintend- 
ent's reception during Plebe summer. Admiral 
Calvert remarked that he had heard quite a bit 
about the bright and famous flanker from 
Santa Barbara, Calif. Unfortunately, another 
Rob Taylor Mark was not. After a year with 
Plebe football he made contact for 4th Batt's 
team. Of course, he never let anyone forget 
that, back in the fashion of football he once 
played with Big Man and Sam Cunningham. 
Soon we realized, however that Mark was not 
at all bad. And when things were rough, Mark 
was always ready. He sometimes accompanied 
the Charter House Gang, but most impressive 
was his way with girls. What at first seemed to 
be an overly zealous attitude turned out to be 
a genuine dedication to his profession and to 
the leadership of the underclass. Some ward- 
room will be lucky to gain a capable, likable, 
and happy member.

A true 23r(i Company tiger, "Rollo" came to 
the Naval Academy from Beeville, Texas — 
among other places. Being a Navy junior, Bob 
lived in many different places, so he likes 
"room to move," which is why every summer 
he could be found on some dusty Mexican road 
with a road map, beard, and a bottle of Tequi- 
la. He was once heard to comment that his 
happiness factor corresponded directly to his 
distance from Bancroft Hall (that's our Rollo). 
Known as the "tracker" by some, his interests 
revolved around lacrosse, hunting, sleeping 
and mooching food — that is, if he could find 
his lax stick, gun or pad amidst the wreckage 
and debris usually found in his room. An easy- 
going guy. Pigpen was always eager to im- 
prove the Brigade's relations in foreign 
countries — Tijuana will never be the same. If 
he can tear himself away from hunting, sleep- 
ing and grubbing long enough, he will some- 
day jam his curly locks into a Navy air helmet 
and pin those wings of gold on a greasy t-shirt. 


"Sky," one of the old men in the company, 
hails from Burlington, Vermont (wherever 
that is!). After spending a year at the Univer- 
sity of Colorado, as an NROTC type, he de- 
cided, "If you're gonna do it, go all the way" — 
so he came to Navy. He was never one to let 
the system get him down, and had the unusual 
distinction of being the only Plebe on Parents' 
Weekend to be late for expiration of libs, (he 
got stuck in traffic driving his girl's car back!) 
Proud winner of a Black "N," Timmy proved 
that you can't beat them all the time. "Ski" 
was active on the sports scene playing compa- 
ny soccer, basketball, and baseball. A Political 
Science major, Tim usually came out ahead 
when grades came out. If he has his way, he 
will be wearing Navy wings as soon as he can 
after graduation, but whatever he does, he's 
sure to be a success. 


Lloyd hails from Onarga, Illinois which is 
just a truck stop or two south of the thriving 
metropolis of Kankakee. Spending a year be- 
tween high school and USNA at that most dis- 
tinguished Navy prep school located in Bain- 
bridge, Lloyd prepared for his highly success- 
ful assault on the academics and professional- 
ism. J. Cash, trucks, scuba, scotch, and USMC 
seemed to hold the greatest interest for Mr. 
Thorne. To aug'ment this sound base, he made 
several excursions with the YP Squadron and 
a few forays into the battle for feminine com- 
panionship. The objects of the latter seemed to 
escape his grasp, an indication of his dedication 
to maintaining a proper bearing and dress. 
Known to grumble about anything and every- 
thing while doing the best job possible, Lloyd 
is always willing to help a friend. If Lloyd is 
any indication of the product of Kanosky's 
Tavern in Onarga, then this venerable estab- 
lishment will be as well known as West Point, 
Air Force, and Navy as a builder of men.

Randy came from the far West to conquer 
Navy. He fought to a standstill Plebe year, but 
he has been gaining ground ever since. He 
owes an early "fame ' at USNA to having the 
cleanest pillow 4-0 ever saw. His interests from 
high school in Twenty-Nine Palms, California, 
led him into fencing, fieldball, sailing, and the 
Scuba Club. As an afterthought, during 2/c 
year he dedicated himself to varsity crew 
along with a small group of masochists. Ran- 
dy's future may be in the submarine force if 
his QPR can push itself over the 3.0 mark. To 
help him attain these ends his roommates val- 
iantly tried to help by getting him to go to 
sleep, but the late lights burned on and on. His 
dedication and drive will establish him as an 
excellent officer. 


A Navy junior, John knew several homes be- 
fore Oak Harbor, Washington was graced with 
his permanent residence. However, it too was 
to soon lose him, but Oak Harbor's loss was 
Annapolis' gain. John seemed to find himself 
in USNA in almost every respect. Academi- 
cally John's collar took a strain, for it was 
forced to carry stars many a semester. The 
athletic field knew John well, as he was a real 
tough competitor in company and battalion in- 
tramurals. Although knowledge and athletics 
were so dear to John, his love for members of 
the Freshman class surpassed both of these. 
Countless Frosh will forever endear those mo- 
ments when he bestowed a loving comment 
upon them. Yet there is still one thing even 
more dear to John — flying. With the advent 
of June 1972, the Navy, and eventually Navy 
air, will gain them an outstanding professional 


Coming from the uncharted dense forests of 
the far Northwest, Marshal! lends distinction 
to Portland, Oregon by calling that his home. 
Of course, those who know him well realize 
that his heart was truly in "Philly" during his 
last 2 years at USNA. Being a great outdoors- 
m»n. Marsh quickly became a permanent 
member of the early morning hikers during 
Plebe summer. He always longed to hear the 
words "no credit." Forced to give up varsity 
football to concentrate on his double major. 
Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering, 
the big blue's loss was the batt team's gain. 
Marsh played both football and rugby. If ever 
asked "Where do I find Marshall?" the reply 
most assuredly was either "In the rack, he's 
asleep, try the pad or he's racking in the dark- 
room again." Since Marsh was an avid photog- 
rapher he spent many long hours working for 
the Lucky Bag and the Log taking and devel- 
oping their pictures. Navy'Air is most certain 
to gain another fine officer when graduation 


Charlie hung up his spurs and sold his oil 
wells to come to USNA from Dallas, Texas. 
Wasting no time, "Chuck" won his Black "N" 
early Plebe year. He was no academic slash 
Plebe year either but the Texan showed Navy 
Youngster year by doubling his QPR. Chuck 
started surveying the territory on the East 
Coast and finally bit the dust early 2/c Year 
both romantically and financially when he met 
Shirley from Philly. Presently the world's 
shortest Texan is planning to enter the naval

"JC" came to the Academy from the back- 
woods of Pinson, Alabama, after a "minor" 
overhaul of his board scores with the help of a 
9 month gouge session — NAPS. Plebe year 
and the Class of 70's Brigade Commander 
quickly changed Jerry; he once even saw his 
belt buckle. His Plebe year, however, did have 
one bright spot. For among Mrs. Marshall's 
"young lovelies" Jerry actually found a true 
young lovely. Perhaps it would be better said 
that Mary Ann found Jerry for Jerry's girl 
watching days are over, June 1972. A former 
Machinist's Mate, Jerry didn't devote all of his 
hours to slashing out at a 2.5. His love for "the 
hole" spurred him on the pinnacle of his career 
at Navy; he attained the position of Engineer- 
ing Duty Officer of the YP Squadron. Typical 
"Cuda" organization led him to complement 
his YP experience with a Marine Engineering 
major. And true to this same form Jerry plans 
to become an NFO upon graduation. 


Some called him Bags, and some called him 
Bob. Some called him Mister, while many more 
didn't call him at all. But those who grew to 
hate him most just called him Bugs. It was 
well into Youngster year before he made his 
big breakthrough into the partying crowd; he 
was a big smash. Among a close circle of ani- 
mals, he behaved much in the manner of rab- 
bit; something Bugs knew best. Often he could 
be seen, harmonica in mouth, silhouetted 
against the midnight moon on a local monu- 
mented hillside. In the hall he was always will- 
ing to quit studying to share a problem; the 
poor fellow had so many, studying probably 
being the biggest. On a more serious note (I 
have trouble being serious when dealing with 
such a hog). Bob came here to play ball, to get 
good grades, and of course, to join an elite 
group of fighting men afloat. Already he has 
shown e.xcellence on the soccer field and grade 
card. The latter is long since inevitable. 


John came to us from the sun and surf of 
Southern California with high ideals of cars, 
girls, gin and a little 'Nav thrown in. He 
quickly adopted the nickname 'Chalks' and his 
reputation increased throughout his years at 
the Academy as a man of easy suave style and 
good humor, and he frequently attended seri- 
ous discussion sessions within the company. A 
welcome member of any party group, Chalks is 
well known for his moves on the dance floor. 
"The Sunshine Kid" was often to be seen on 
the waters of the Chesapeake, skippering his 
yawl or sailing on one of the ocean racers. His 
love of the sea is reflected in other interests — 
scuba diving and surfing, and a major in 
Oceanography. "Maximum result from mini- 
mum effort" may have been Chalks' motto, 
but if judged by his achievements, he must be 
considered successful in its application. A lead- 
er of the BAC, Chalks has lent his special cre- 
ativity to many projects. His easygoing man- 
ner, quick wit and exceptional professional 
knowledge will make Chalks one of the Navy's 
best, and hopefully one of Navy air's top fliers.

It was a sunny day in June of 1968 when this 
blonde-haired, blue-eyed, but not really bushy- 
tailed young man entered USNA. It was the 
community of Hatboro, Pennsylvania that sac- 
rificed Clarke to our outstanding institution of 
higher learning and military professionalism. 
Clarke's days at the Academy were well spent 
for no matter what he was doing, helping to 
win the Brigade championship for 24tn Com- 
pany soccer, attending a professional board 
meeting, running his mile run at supersonic 
speeds, or just generally raising hell in the 
graveyard, you could be sure that he was giv- 
ing it his very best, and what more could you 
ask of a guy? He was a man of a 1001 names 
but no matter what you called him, whether it 
be, Charlie, Chas, Chuck, Arty, Argoo, or just 
plain Clarke, you knew that you were talking 
to one of the greatest guys that this institution 
ever accepted. 


Leaving the sun and fun life of Hawaii and 
surfing behind him. Bob entered the Academy 
to try his hand at running the Navy. However, 
much to his amazement, he soon found that 
the Navy wanted him to do things their way 
and many a Saturday afternoon found him 
marching off his demerits. "Brandoni's" bar- 
ber shop was the place to go if you wanted to 
get through the year with a little extra hair. 
Never caring much for academics, Bob spent 
most of his time blessing others with his quick 
wit and sense of humor, or in his rack meditat- 
ing on the problems of the world. Never one to 
turn down a date. Bob probably had more 
dates than anyone else. Sooner or later one girl 
will pin him down and she'll have found herself 
quite a man, much as the Corps will soon find 
themselves with quite a 2nd Lieutenant. 


One of the oldest men ever to attend the 
Academy (with the possible exception of Ger- 
ald), Jack came to USNA from Johnstown, Pa. 
only after a fun filled year in a Minnesota prep 
school. Never one to let Plebe dragging regula- 
tions get in between him and his first love, he 
managed to find strange meeting places in 
which to catch up on his love life. The 
Masqueraders found a dedicated actor in Jack, 
and he could often be found rehearsing on Sat- 
urday nites. (How can we ever forget his fa- 
mous balcony scene Youngster year?) A faith- 
ful patron of "Jake's" from the first. Jack 
rarely turned down an invitation to the grave- 
yard. Despite an intense love of the sea and 
ships. Jack may choose the Marine Corps, a 
move which can only benefit the gunts. 


From humble origins in the suburbs of 
Princeton, N. J. came Bob Cook. Although a 
slow starter Plebe year Bob will always be re- 
membered as the man who had the system 
beat. Known to his friends and enemies as 
B. C. he is a true slash — no one ever sees him 
study yet his grades came out 4.0. Coupled 
with this genius is the athletic ability of a var- 
sity swimmer, in 2/c year he left the swim- 
ming team to "beef up his studies," for he has 
been leaning towards nuclear power and the 
hard road towards dolphins. A true hard core 
24 rally man, B. C. has provided us all with 
good times, extra instruction and a lousy van. 
Whether he makes his mark in the nukes or 
joins the surface safari, the Navy has a sound 
investment in B. C.

On 26 June 1968, "R. J." received his first 
"Navy Good Deal" — "Comearound Birthday 
Boy" Ray came to the "Phantom Foundation ' 
from Churchvilie, a sleepy village to the north 
of Philadelphia. Due to his Rip Van Winkle 
syndrome, Ray never quite got that extra 
weekend, however, the quality of those that he 
did receive is attested to by many frauleins, 
many pitchers of beer, and many laughs. An 
avid athlete, Ray enjoyed sjrorts at the Acade- 
my and will always remember earning his "N" 
in soccer Youngster year. Ray majored in 
Oceanography and is a believer that the ocean 
is where it s at — however, the thrill of flying 
a jet is his calling upon graduation. Ray's 
devotion and hard work while at the Academy 
will surely help make his career in the 
"Air/Corps" business a success. 


Returning to our Severn shores in the sum- 
mer of '68, Kaiter traded in his surfboard for a 
rifle and a copy of Reef Points and fulfilled his 
lifelong desire to become a midshipman. Al- 
though he came to us from Santa Barbara, 
California, Navy Junior T. M. was actually 
born right here m the yard, at the Naval Hos- 
pital. Known as one of the best chandelier- 
swingers on the varsity fencing team, "Doug- 
las Fairbanks" Kait had to give up a promising 
fencing career for the sake of a sagging QPR. 
Though he was frequently buried beneath the 
Math required for his Analytical Management 
major, Kaiter always somehow found time to 
shoot the breeze, chase all the passing skirts, 
and design and build his own top-secret 
YPG(N)-1. The Academy's loss will be Navy 
air's gain. Whether grasping the stick of an In- 
truder or the handle of a beer mug, Tom is cer- 
tain to enjoy life to the fullest and will long be 
remembered fondly by those who knew him. 


Dave King came here from Houston, Texas, 
and soon proved to be a typical rough, tough 
Texan. Dave quickly distinguished himself as 
a man who liked to work, more or less. He 
channeled his efforts in fencing, scuba, Chi- 
nese, and women, not necessarily in that order, 
however. A non-typical member of hard core 
24, he attempted a quality study of his inter- 
ests, not a quantity study. His sweet, pleasant, 
friendly, almost fatherly attitude made him a 
favorite with the freshmen. Whatever endeav- 
ors Dave attempts to coast through, he will un- 
doubtedly do a fine and thorough job. Anyway, 
what can you say bad about a saber swinging 
monster babbling in Chinese.

Fred hails from Greenville, Ohio, and seems 
to be the first in a long line of Dohses to attend 
USNA. One brother has already entered with 
the Class of '73, while two others wait impa- 
tiently at home for their chance to follow in 
big brother's footsteps. Fred's is a tough act to 
follow, as he held both stars and stripes and 
was a mainstay of the award winning, unde- 
feated 24th Company Brigade champion soccer 
team. Fred and his roommate hold the distinc- 
tion of having roomed with half the company 
since Plebe summer, and they have watched 
seven of those brave souls bite the dust. With 
a major in Oceanography and a basically re- 
served and sneaky demeanor, Fred is a natural 
for the silent service. First things first, howev- 
er, as there is a sweet young thing back in Ohio 
who has first dibs immediately after gradua- 
tion. Whether he is raising a periscope or rais- 
ing a family, Fred is certain to have success 
and happiness, and everyone who knows him 
wishes him the best. 


One of the few elite people to be born and 
raised in Arkansas, Larry is a razorback 
through and through, and rumor has it that he 
still wonders why he turned down a tuition 
scholarship at the University of Arkansas to 
come to USNA. Since coming to USNA 
though, Larry has been unstoppable. He has 
fought his way through every conceivable ob- 
stacle, including screen windows, four lost 
roommates, and "good ole Butch" to stand as a 
prime example of . . . of . . . Being a member 
m good standing of the "Youngster graveyard 
gang and brewmaster for the organization." 
Larry firmly believes that there are better 
times to come at USNA. Although what he is 
going to do after USNA is still undecided, ev- 
erybody can be certain that the '72 representa- 
tive of the Herndon tradition will one day re- 
turn to the "Land of Opportunity." 


Kendall came to the Academy from Wack- 
off. New Jersey having been an outstanding 
athlete in both high school soccer and wres- 
tling. With his expertise in soccer Ken helped 
lead the 4th Batt team to the Brigade Cham- 
pionships. He then joined both the Plebe soccer 
and wrestling teams, finally yielding to strict 
discipline of wrestling and devoting the rest of 
his years to varsity soccer. Over the years Ken 
has become better known for his crepidation 
rather than his concentration in the field of ac- 
ademics. When not crepidating, Kendall can be 
found "doggedly" pursuing one young lady 
after another. One of the founders of the For- 
restal series of parties. Ken always had a wink 
and vodka in one hand, but not always a girl in 
the other. A welcome face in any crowd, Ken- 
dall's dedication and professionalism should 
make him a welcome face in the crowd of 
Navy pilots. 


Hams, Slash, S. J., Nopa, or Konops; they all 
describe one individual. Not one to be pushed 
around or manipulated (except by "The Orga- 
nization"), Steve is a good leader and a hard 
working guy. His Sup's List QPR, two stripes 
and AU-American pistol honors attest to this. 
Steve enjoys knocking people around. He no 
longer beats up on his red-headed roommate, 
though. Instead Nopa reverted to batt foot- 
ball, rugby and "The Organization" to vent his 
hostilities. Konops is also known for building 
things — from football posters of Plebe year 
to a balsawood clipper ship which he may not 
finish until his retirement days. Most of all 
Steve digs travelling and the outdoors. He'll 
gladly thumb across country or roam around 
the California deserts. He'll often be seen with 
his trusty road atlas, planning his summer 
leaves early — like in September. Steve is un- 
decided as to what he'll be doing after gradua- 
tion — and five years after that — but he is 
sure to be a welcome addition to any part of 
the fleet or the Corps. 


A. J. came to us from Spokane, Wash, and 
promptly became the duty 24th Co. Ski Nut. 
Christmas leaves for Andy were figured in 
terms of days on the slopes instead of days of 
leave. 1/c year with a car, more pay, and un- 
limited weekends saw "Jean-Claude" Koss 
practicing his Olympic form for Denver in '76. 
There were other things though. Throughout 
the year our Hero could be found stroking the 
lightweight crew team to victory, for which he 
earned his N, and missed his N* only because 
Army doesn't row crew. Never one to study 
when he could be asleep, Red found that aca- 
demics just weren't his bag. Andy takes with 
him to the Fleet a firm foundation in his 
major. Economics, and a cheerful smile that 
will win friends wherever he goes.

Larry had to make the difficult decision of 
where to go, USMA or USNA. "Kubox" saw 
his way from San Jose to Navy. Once he ar- 
rived he set out to excel at the various duties 
and "odd-jobs" the Academy life threw his 
way, and excel he did. He wore well earned 
stars in his major of Aerospace and argument 
Engineering. "Rotus Brossom," as he was af- 
fectionately dubbed by his teammates, could 
be seen relieving his frustrations both in varsi- 
ty 150 lb. football and in his favorite hobby — 
Brigade boxing. His "roll-with-the-punch at- 
titude enabled him to cope with trying situa- 
tions. Still "Box" found time to meet his social 
obligations with such a group as "The Royal 
Order of the Tilted Glass." He should have a 
promising career in the Navy whether he de- 
cides to go above or below the waves. 


. . . came here from a small town high school 
in the Missouri Ozarks. Maintained a 4.0 QPR 
for the first four semesters, majoring in Chem- 
istry (switched from French area studies). 
Doing research for a Trident project for the 
Chemistry Department (water pollution and 
ecology)- Has participated in YP Squadron, 
company lightweight football, battalion 
squash, Gun Club, French Club, Chemistry 
Club, etc. Interests primarily in academics and 
research (Geochemistry, ecology), but being 
brought up on a farm increases the field to in- 
clude hunting', camping, climbing, etc. Service 
selection definitely not Marines and probably 
not Adm. Rickover. Plans for immediate mas- 
ters and hopes for a Burke Scholarship. 


"Shazer," an import from the sticks of La- 
Crosse, Wisconsin, came wide-eyed and inno- 
cent into the arms of "Mother B." Plebe year 
proved to be pretty tough on Tom; two sets on 
"T-tables" is just about all anybody can stand. 
He has contributed much to Navy sports as a 
Plebe and varsity pole vaulter, as a company 
soccer player (which he led to the Brigade 
championships), as a heavyweight football 
player and as a Plebe gymnast. Among his 
many milestones set in sports, he achieved his 
greatest mark on the upper deck of Macdo- 
nough Hall. As a gymnast, he climbed to the 
pinnacle of his career by performing an "L" on 
the parallel bars. "Shogs ' talents weren't con- 
fined to the athletic field. Hunting such game 
as bear, deer, and l)eaver were also his bag. He 
also had a knack for losing roommates, bat- 
tling four for seven, one of whom he coached 
to a 12 1.0. During his stay at Navy, 2/c Sum- 
mer had the most lasting effect on Tom. He 
fell in love twice, first, he fell for good ole 
What's-her-namc, and second, he fell for avia- 
tion. Pensacola has not seen the last of this 
very promising aviator.

Nooch arrived in our beloved Severn banks 
from Walpole, Mass. After leaving Plebe sum- 
mer and Plebe year in his wake, with a record 
for the fewest number of haircuts, Bob settled 
down to the wonderful world of the upper- 
class. Nooch established himself early as one of 
the happy-go-lucky members of 24. Rack al- 
ways took precedence over studies, but Nooch 
always managed to keep himself well out of 
4-1's reach. When not in the pad, one would 
find Bob excelling for the company volleyball 
team or bustin' heads with the lightweights. A 
friend to all, Nooch was never one to turn 
down a friend in need. Gumba Nooch will long 
be remembered for his friendly nature, his in- 
satiable appetite for pizza and spicy meatballs, 
and as the Bigga Boss for a certain "Organiza- 
tion." Upon graduation from the Ocean Acade- 
my, Surface line will be getting one of our 
finest (?). 


John, well known for commandeering a 
naval vessel during 2/c Summer, has always 
been a believer in taking advantage of the op- 
portunities offered here at USNA and even 
some that aren't offered. Organizer of fre- 
quent parties John is still liked by several of 
his classmates. Whether John is m a serious 
mood or one of his lighthearted periods, it is all 
the same, for he is one of the company's excep- 
tionally dull fellows. John's many clandestine 
actions to undermine the tradition-bound and 
frustration-wrought "system" have incurred 
the wrath of many a mid and the admiration 
of many more. "Ports," as he is known to no 
one, has contributed much to the 24th Compa- 
ny clique, including a daring method of gomg 
AWOL for 2 days, lessons m wit and humor, 
the rat cheer, a furry feline, and the countless 
bottles of vodka. The versatility and intelli- 
gence of this man will undoubtedly make him 
a great success in the destroyer Navy. 


John E. Van Maele — a native of Pitts- 
burgh, Pa. — left the iron city in pursuit of 
higher education, girls, good times and Nav; 
although not necessarily m that order. Van, as 
his friends called him, carried himself in that 
man about town style complemented by a 
striking midshipman wardrobe that signified 
a complete understanding of the surrounding 
environment. And understand he did, his vast 
knowledge in many diversified subjects — 
ranging from Oceanography to virtually un- 
known rock music talent and close connections 
in the Brigade Rumor Committee (vice-chair- 
man) made Van a wealth of information. A 
member of 24's spontaneous rally group — he 
was a welcome touch of variety, spontaneity 
and humor to all parties. On the athletic field, 
Van joined 24th company's soccer team as a 
rookie 2/c year to aid in taking the Brigade 
championship. John — a mid extraordinare in 
many ways will find happiness in Navy as an 
Airdale — Catch-22 style. 


Nominally from Florida, Rodger actually 
spent his formative years in the slums of go 
court. Kind of a dull guy when he arrived, 
Rodger known to his friends as Rawls, soon de- 
veloped the nauseous wit that had made him 
the cutest guy in the company. Amazing or an- 
tagonizing three successive senior classes with 
his flagrant disrespect for traditional trivia 
and the prep school mentality, Rodger has led 
a life sure to become legendary in the annals 
of 24th Company. Always the center of atten- 
tion he could usually be found on weeknights 
leading a group of close friends in a discussion 
of artful crepidation and lesser issues. On 
weekends he could only be found by fellow fol- 
lowers of the cult of vodka, wink, and "ani- 
mal" games. In his spare time he went to 
school here and this future pilot should make a 
valuable addition to the gator Navy.

Bruce came Xjo the Academy from the Ala- 
bama full of ideas on how to run the Navy. 
These were quickly shattered by the Plete 
system. Quiet and mild mannered, he has 
ideas on most subjects, and is outsp>oken when 
asked for an opinion. Bruce sailed for two 
years on the Plebe and varsity sailing teams 
and then advanced to yawls and Class "A" 
boats. He is exceptionally fond of any kind of 
boat, but especially those with sails. His win- 
ter sport 01 pistol shooting earned him the 
nickname of "Bullet." He snot on the varsity 
team every year and helped Beat "Army. ' 
When asked about duty preference, Bruce 
just wants a ship. Although torn between 
subs and surface line, he'll probably go tin 


"Fleet," as he was known by his classmates, 
hailed from Versaillesboro, Pennsylvania. 
Coming to Navy via NAPS, Kuz could always 
be found with a nose in a book and a hand in a 
chow package. He never had any trouble sleep- 
ing: it was noted that he was asleep 3.5 sec- 
onds before his head hit the pillow. He enjoyed 
sports and graced many different rosters; 
from intramurals to sailing and YP's. As a 
Chem major, he was found running around the 
hall screaming "The carbons are after me!" 
Frank was well known for getting along with 
a certain company commander who believed 
that "Youngsters should be seen and not 
heard." His emotions on service selection were 
mixed and he found it hard to decide which 
part of the service he would like best. Howev- 
er, his hard work and good attitude will serve 
him well in the future. 


Pat marched into USNA with ecstatic desire 
to be a career "skinhead." With a fine academ- 
ic standing, the "Gleaming forehead" could be 
found parked in the pad or in front of a tube in 
either wardroom; his own or the company's. 
When not found there he was sure to be must- 
ering at the Main Office or escorting young 
lovelies. Athletics were of foremost concern, 
although "body beautiful" found the mirror in 
the weight room more invigorating. Other fa- 
mous traits were his records for "most inter- 
ceptions and yards lost rushing" in batt. foot- 
ball, and "bagger of the year" award. His most 
common statement was "Debbie still hasn't 
written." Remember Pat: "When Greg is 
sleeping, rats are creeping."

"0. T. R. Poon," an outcast from King of 
Prussia, Pennsylvania, brought to the Acade- 
my a dedication to boats and an outstanding 
sense of humor. Jim mastered the art of study- 
ing with a major in Oceanography, and could 
often be found on the Sup's List. He could be 
called using many different nicknames; how- 
ever, "Poon," "Nephew," and "Sow" succeeded 
most often. Besides making academic lists, he 
was a member of the top ten sow lists at the 
Academy, being second only to G. A. Painter. 
However, Jim's athletic ability was certainly 
not humorous, as he chose to excel in squash 
and made a long lasting contribution. Jim's 
competitive nature, strong will power, and de- 
sire to excel will lead him to an outstanding ca- 
reer in the surface navy and beyond. 


■ Hailing from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Alan 

■ "Dutch" came to the Academy via Penn State. 
Ill Although it was a long fight for him to get in, 

it was just as hard trying to stay here. Alan 
participated in the Chapel Choir and could be 
seen many afternoons carrying his bass guitar 
down to band practice with an Academy pop 
music band. When hfe wasn't playing in the 
band he was either pulling some z s or hitting 
around with the company football or softball 
teams. Alan was always one to enjoy fast cars, 
a beautiful girl and the latest sounds. Unsure 
about service selection, it looks like Alan will 
be choosing surface line as his duty. 


A product of the Keystone State, Bo skated 
into the Naval Academy via Lansdale Catholic 
High School and Mount Hermon Prep. Having 
lived as a hermit for 15 years. Bo found this 
experience very valuable in adjusting to 
USNA life. Contrary to popular belief, he was 
not born in a coal mine and was not a regular 
on "Make That Spare." Despite being a prime 
contender for the "Rip Van Winkle" title, Witz 
managed to find time for athletics and aca- 
demics, and was a member of the baseball 
team as well as a frequent visitor on the Sup's 
List. The Polak, although a conscientious 
worker, could always b^ pegged for the 
"which-one-of-you-guys-did-that" award in 
the hail, yet always turned up with a "golden 
..." and was affectionately known by his 
classmates as Itchie. Also known as The Rock 
because of his swimming prowess, he will un- 
doubtedly find the water a second home 
thanks to BuPers. Wherever he goes, Witz's 
background as an Ops Analysis major and 
easygoing personality should stand him in 
good stead. 


From destroyers he came and to destroyers 
he plans to return. Hailing from Grand Prairie, 
Texas, Doug came to the Academy from prior 
enlisted service with high ideals and deep mo- 
tivation for the Navy. After his "stellar aca- 
demic performance at NAPS, Buzz decided to 
give Canoe U a try. It was an uphill battle for 
Doug, but guts and roommate nagging pre- 
vailed and got him through. The wall on 6-0 
will never be the same after knocking heads 
with Doug. He was dubbed "Ma Lane' during 
Plebe year, which was the first of many nick- 
names he received, such as "W. T. Door," (cen- 
sored), etc. When he was off the excused squad 
(which wasn't very often), he enjoyed batt 
football and company fieldball. But his hidden 
love was swimming. His best effort at Navy — 
was "Z" power, which was the major reason he 
was such a frequent visitor to 4-1, by invita- 
tion of Lord Jim, during academic boards. A 
person of unyielding character and principle, 
ne shall go on to serve his country with the 
pride and dignity expected of an Academy 

Seven Hundred Twenty-One 


Bob, hailing from Sunbury, Pennsylvania, 
came to the Academy via Shikellamy High 
School where he played the left side of the of- 
fensive line. Completion of Plebe Summer 
found Bob "lean and mean and a member of 
the Plebe football team." Even though Bob 
tried to keep a trim shape, the off-season 
found the Leiber expanding in all directions 
and he became affectionately known as the 
"Blob." Upperclass years found Blob moon- 
lighting as the goodyear blimp, hovering over 
the end-zones, providing tv coverage for foot- 
ball games. Also referred to most commonly as 
the clinging vine" and "leaning post" of the 
company, Bob could make his classmates feel 
good at times when they most needed it. The 
Leib^T, never one to sweat the reg book, could 
often be heard stomping around the hall, in the 
wardroom, or into trouble. Bob's carefree atti- 
tude toward academics was overlooked as he 
skated onto the Ops Info List almost every se- 
mester. His likeable personality, easygoing 
manner, and dedication to achieving success 
will stand him in good stead in any phase of 
life he pursues. 


A permanent member of the varsity excused 
squad Rich could always be seen hopping 
around on his "sore" ankle. "Joe Soccer" of the 
25th Company second class. Rich took to the 
sport Plebe year in much the same way that a 
hippo takes to flying. Through long hours of 
dedicated work, he became captain of the JV 
team. He'll always be remembered as the class- 
mate who took everyone home because he 
needed company and couldn't ever find a date. 
Maybe when he gets his 'Vette, he'll be able to 
decide whether to go "north" or "west," to find 
his blonde-to-be. He surely won't take pictures 
of his bulletin board anymore! Living with a 
certain mind when he was a Plebe has certain- 
ly left its mark on Rich. He is improving 
though, but very slowly. He always wanted to 
be a "wearer of the green," so his congressman 
gave him a principal appointment to Hudson 
High — West Point. After finally ending up at 
Navy, he still plans to wear green by gracing 
the Corps with his presence upon graduation. 


Having been raised in the outermost reaches 
of Madagascar, Mike was able to fit right into 
the ways of the Naval Academy. Known to his 
closest friends as Mike (which was Mike's first 
name), Mike's favorite pastimes included 
flying his own personal Lear Jet on weekends, 
collecting old 56-V^ RPM records, and measur- 
ing refraction patterns eminating from the 
Chesapeake Bay. He loved to swim and could 
be faithfully found at the bottom of any pool 
(breathing water). During his 4 year stay Mike 
established AGL (Academy Games League) ca- 
reer totals of 2,880 meal formations (approxi- 
mately 218 hours), 100 haircuts, and 528 hours 
of dead time spent in the mess hall waiting to 
be seated. His career totals make him eligible 
for the starting line-up in the annual Gradua- 
tion Games held at the end of each season in 
the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. 
Mike was also well known for his uncanny im- 
personation of Barbra Streisand. 

Seven Hundred Twenty-Two 


"Biff" came to the Boat School from Plym- 
outh, Michigan after attending Northwestern 
Prep School in Minneapolis, Minnesota. A high 
school all-American swimmer, "Biffer" real- 
ized that water and wires didn't mix, and de- 
cided to try his luck at sailing the Navy yawls. 
Although his Electrical Engineering major 
kept him busy during the week, Biff spent his 
weekends supporting the "Budweiser" distrib- 
uters in the area and dragging beautiful girls. 
"Biffer" found the loopholes in the regulations 
and planned many well-remembered hay rides 
and parties which turned out to be Academy- 
sponsored beer parties. Always willing to help 
out a classmate, Biff had the gouge" for those 
struggling in wires. His quick smile, pearly 
white teeth, and optimistic attitude are well 
known throughout the Brigade. A sincere and 
energetic individual. Biff will leave his mark 
both in and out of the Navy. 


Bill, known better as "Bill the Blade" or 
"White Rat," comes from scenic Pittsburgh, 
Pa. While he will probably be remembered 
best for the sleeping records he set Youngster 
Year, several will think of him whenever doing 
any meat-carving or wood-finishing work. Not 
bemg one of those inclined to study. Bill could 
usually be found roaming the halls, watching 
tv, or reading a novel in his rack. His desk was 
always available to anyone who wanted to 
study. On most afternoons and during all 
Spring p-rades, Bill sought refuge with the 
crew teams at Hubbard Hall as one of the var- 
sity managers. Bill is one of the few people 
who intended to go surface line when he en- 
tered the Academy and who refused to let 
what he saw there change his mind. 


Jim, an athletically inclined general, hails 
from Bedford High School in Bedford, Massa- 
chusetts. James, who has always taken Navy 
with a grain of salt, has managed to distin- 
guish himself as an athlete and striper in our 
way of life. The Academy, however, hasn't 
foreseen his true potential m any of his varied 
assets. "Mac" may be recognized by many var- 
ied nicknames such as "General," "Nephew," 
"Stevie," "Beads, jr.," and his most recent 
alias, "Clops." Mac has always been an integral 
part of the 25th Company hogs and the leader 
of the class staff. However, he hasn't been able 
to devote full time because of his time consum- 
ing E.I. with profs, company officers and 
"classmates," and his favorite pastime, drag- 
ging his one and only girl. Because of Mac s 
slow academic start and finish, he selected his 
service as the G-2 Moke; Navy, however, has 
bigger and better ideas. With his congenial 
personality and high motivation, he will be a 
line attribute in any phase of military or civil- 
ian life. 


Bill drifted aimlessly into our college life 
from Springfield High in Oreland, Pa. As an 
all-round varsity letter winner in high school, 
"Dirtball" found sports at USNA a challenge 
. . . "Will-I," never letting a wall stand in his 
way, frequently requisitioned himself more 
liberty as a Plebe than as a Youngster. When 
not on liberty he could be found livening up 
any wardroom with his extensive vocabulary. 
"Maple Street," as he is more commonly 
known, was recognized as all-batt, and an aca- 
demic all-American. Known also throughout 
the company for his integrity, Julius' favorite 
saying was 'I solemnly swear to tell the truth, 
the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so 
help me 'Doug.' " "Will-I" could always be re- 
liea on to extend fatherly advice to anyone, 
anywhere, anytime. Our hero, "Gerbur,' sur- 
passing even Tracy, established himself as the 
6th Wing barber and beautician. However, 
vice previous word, "Will-I" and his time at 
the Academy was not a total yuk. Behind his 
humorous facade was a sincerity which we all 
envied. With his dynamic personality, desire to 
excel, and strong persistence. Bill will be a 
welcome asset in any place.

Jim followed a family tradition, and three 
brothers when he came to the Academy. A na- 
tive of Hofnewood, Alabama, Nat's loves in- 
cluded traveling, meeting girls, and tipping 
tall cans of cold Buds. His keen competitive at- 
titude was evident in obtaining a rare "N-star" 
(black, that is) from well-remembered hayrides 
and parties. Jim participated in numerous 
sports squads, from the Plebe boxing team to 
the Naval Academy Handball Club. Many an 
afternoon found Nats dedicated to the Hand- 
ball Courts at MacDonough Hall. His conscien- 
tious leadership was evident in BAC projects 
and Newman Club grammar school catechism 
classes. These qualities leave no doubt that 
Jim's motivation, sincerity and ability to influ- 
ence others will be a welcome and valuable ad- 
dition to his career. 


After attending Texas A&M University for 
a year, Norbert entered Canoe U. Often yell- 
ing "Hook-em-Horns," Norb is as cocky as any 
Texan. Back home in the Lone Star State, he 
passed the time rebuilding his Model "A" Ford 
(1930), which will lead the first class line of an- 
tiques. At the Academy Norb could be heard 
strumming on his old guitar. The high school 
urge to run hurdles carried over to USNA 
where Norb ran high hurdles all four years, 
both indoor and outdoor. Weekends at Navy 
weren't too bad for Norb because of Carol. 
Being so close to the Academy, she could spend 
many happy hours with Norb and make Acad- 
emy life ( r) much more bearable. Norbert will 
be remembered for his mild-manneredness 
and, of course, his name! Upon graduation he 
hopes to be a shore-based boat driver. 


A refugee of "Crime Town USA," better 
known as Youngstown, Ohio, Jack came to 
USNA directly from the hallowed halls of Car- 
dinal Mooney High School. Entering the Acad- 
emy at a lean 150 lbs.. Jack concentrated on 
playing basketball and made the Plebe team 
that year. Upon the completion of the season 
however. Jack joined the Navy's expansion 
program and quickly increasea in mass to 
about 186. "Fat Jack," as he was then nick- 
named, had a change of interests at this time. 
He began to devote all of his time and effort to 
traveling cross country with the Glee Club, 
making new friends as Company Watch Coor- 
dinator, and excelling in academics with a stel- 
lar 2.01 CUM. Jack will make his own special 
contributions to our Navy after graduation 
and is anxiously awaiting the command of a

Greg left exotic Santa Monica, California, to 
join the brothers of the blue cloth. Soon he re- 
alized that Plebe year rec^uired more than 
push-ups when he finished first semester 1069 
m the class. Changing his ways second semes- 
ter, Greg doubled his QPR and stood 593 after 
a year at Canoe U. Known for wearing USC 
and UCLA shorts during football and basket- 
ball seasons respectively, "Paps" excelled in 
athletics, garnering a starting position at line- 
backer for the "mighty mites, ' and going on to 
run track for Navy. He took pride in his uni- 
form and 4.0 room, displaying a mirror deck 
and pictures of Porsches and pulchritudinous 
steff. Although struggling with an Aerospace 
Engineering major, Greg hopes to pilot F-14's 
and eventually space vehicles. 


The call of the sea lured Chuck to the Naval 
Academy directly from high school in Lynn- 
field, Massachusetts. Chuck had high hopes of 
winning a varsity N, complete with star, but 
unfortunately Navy failed to recognize his 
true athletic prowess. Never letting a minor 
setback upset him, Chuck excelled in other 
areas, winning a black "N" and then a black 
"N" star. The Robie's encounter with the E.D. 
squad leader began Plebe Summer when the 
familiar "Robie, no credit," echoed throughout 
the Batt. Office. Continuing on through 
Youngster year with "Rifle Ralph," and then 
2/c Year, Chuck seemed to be a permanent 
member of the E.D. st^uad. He will be most re- 
membered for his ability to keep the company 
loose, both in the classroom and in the hall. 
"Fearless Chas" dared to do anything for a 
few grins. Underneath his carefree attitude 
lies an inner seriousness and dedication. Look- 
ing to the future, only the sky is the limit to 
what Chuck will accomplish. 


Doug came to the Academy an innocent 17 
year old from Hendersonville, Tennessee. 
However, being a "shifty and sneaky charac- 
ter," he rapidly corrupted into a typical mid- 
shipman. Our valiant hero fought many battles 
with the Executive Department but always 
managed to come out on top. Such incidents as 
when Doug had his good friend the "Shah of 
Iran" cancel his class "A" for going over the 
wall Plebe Year will go down in the annals of 
Naval history. Undaunted by threats of dis- 
missal and class A's, he accomplished the un- 
heard of task of forcing the laundry to return 
two entire bags of laundry, thus achieving an- 
other Naval Academy first. "D. K." 's inspira- 
tional athletic ability carried many company 
sports teams to unbelievable records. His sea- 
manship abilities were clearly demonstrated 
when he skippered the company sailing team 
into 36th place. He was also in the forefront of 
the volley Dall teams (1-6) season. Never one to 
be heard singing the praises of life on the 
bounding main, and not having any great de- 
sire to "go down to the sea in ships," Doug's 
first choice is Navy Air. 


Jim came to USNA from Lakewood High 
School in Lakewood, Colorado. "Teddy Bear," 
as he was affectionately known by his class- 
mates, was an outstanding performer on the 
150 lb. football team, and helped lead the 
"Mighty Mites" to a National Championship 
with his All-American status. Jim was always 
able to stay above the 3.0 mark and still find 
time for football and lacrosse. After an indus- 
trious and quiet Plebe year, Jim moved in with 
a new roommate who acquainted him with the 
many and various ways of puaning the coast 
buttons which Jim picked up in no time at all. 
His weekend activities consisted of driving his 
silver bullet, as his main social interest was 
left back at home. His great personality and 
determination will allow him to excel in the 
Navy as he has done here at USNA.

Better known throughout the Brigade as 
"Bags," Ned arrived at the Academy after re- 
ceiving his diploma from Kembridge, Virginia 
High School. Though he found Plebe year 
somewhat troublesome, Ned always had his fa- 
vorite saying spurring him on: "take it easy 
right up to the very end, then gradually taper- 
on." Tnis "dyed in the wool" Rebel has never 
taken a backseat to anyone when it came to 
displaying spirit; his mastermind projects have 
dotted the hallowed grounds of tnis Academy 
quite often. The only time he is at a loss for en- 
thusiastic words is when he receives one of 
"those letters" from a Tift College undergra- 
duate. Bag3 has made himself known in the 
Academy sports world by managing the varsi- 
ty football team and as a member of his com- 
pany basketball team. Following in the true 
Greyhound" tradition, Ned manages to main- 
tain his 2.0 plus average, to the amazement of 
his roommate as well as the Academic Board. 
Right now, Ned's future hopes lie in Navy Line 
and a bottle of George Dickie. 


Hailing from nearby Fairfax, Virginia, 
Casey, a non-sweater from way back, spent a 
year at NAPS before entering these chosen 
gates on the banks of the Severn. A high 
school All-Stater in basketball, Casey discov- 
ered the unfortunate realization of either dis- 
continuing ball playing or else ruining his legs 
to a worse degree. Never letting little things 
like the system, or grades, or Glenn, or lack of 
mail from Lee bother him, Casey always found 
time to shoot the breeze with his fellow Grey- 
hounds. When not in his rack, Casey worked 
diligently to achieve his major in Oceanogra- 
phy. His plans after graduation include a re- 
quired stint in the "real" Navy, then a pursuit 
of a Master's in Meteorology and the chance to 
become a Navy Helo pilot. To wish Casey the 
best of luck would only be a formality, because 
the luck of the Irish is always with him. 


Steve, a fierce competitor and emotionally 
spirited Italian, hails from New York City. 
"Fots," as his close friends know him, went to 
Brooklyn Tech High School where he rose to 
the top in athletics, academics, and many other 
school activities. Steve came to USNA after 
one year at Texas A&M University where he 
participated in baseball and the well-known 
corps of cadets as part of the Air Force ROTC 
program. Steve can be heard all year round 
talking about "His Aggies" on the athletic 
field and in the hall. Normally, a hard worker, 
Steve can be seen cramming for exams any 
time of the year in order to achieve his sought- 
after academic excellence of the all-purpose 
2.00 QPR. Everyone will always remember his 
telephone calls to his O.A.O. Rose, whom he 
has made plans to marry upon graduation. 
Then it's out to the fleet, as a Greyhound, but 
only temporarily because his heart is in Pensa- 
cola in high hopes of becoming a pilot and then 
starting a good sized Italian family. Steve's 
pride, leadership, and dedicated devotion to 
duty will make nim a sure success in the pro- 
fessional career that he has sought for so long.

When Walt wasn't in his room studying for 
his Engineering courses, you could find him 
with one of his classmates from the East argu- 
ing on the advantages of living in Southern 
California; or, he would be in some dark corner 
playing one of his guitars. Walt also spent time 
helping out the company volleyball and bas- 
ketoalT teams, class spirit committee, and bat- 
talion tennis team. Wally almost flunked out 
2/c year when all of his extra time w£is occu- 
pied by a California girl who came East for 
school. As the 26th Company spiritual leader, 
he was always there to help out a classmate in 
trouble or lend a hand in class activities. Ser- 
vice selection night will probably find Walt in 
line picking out a Greyhound of the Fleet — 
homeported in San Diego ("Anybody know 
how San Diego State did?") 


Like many an adventurous soul, Dan joined 
the Navy back in the summer of '68 to see the 
world. He'd tried the college scene for a year 
after high school, but the dull routine of riots, 
protests, and demonstrations just had no ap- 
peal for him. So, he came to USNA for the 
challenging and exciting rigors of reveille bells 
and watch squad formations. Dan soon found 
a second home in the Economics Department, 
passing many happy nights with dreams of 
supply curves and marginal utilities. Young- 
ster year he enrolled in the June Week give- 
away-a-sword program and began a collection 
(first kid on the block with a real sword). Sec- 
ond Class year he took command of the 
Masqueraders' propaganda machine and found 
himself responsible for those "humorous" Bri- 
gade flyers which occasionally adorned the 
messhall tables. And speaking of flyers, that's 
exactly what he hopes to become after gradua- 


The original typical Georgia gentleman, 
"Fish" tackled Academy life armed with foot- 
ball cleats, sketch pad, and a meticulous 
knowledge of naval and marine history. A 
standout athlete and student from Eastpoint, 
Georgia, Steve was inspired by his year at 
Georgia Tech to be an Engineer all the way. 
When he was not limbering up his slide rule, 
Fish could be found in the 150's defensive 
backfield. His light hearted manner, both on 
and off the playing field, led Steve's many 
friends to dub him "Puppy." Steve quickly es- 
tablished himself as a genuine artist and a true 
expert on both professional and world history. 
Some swear that his success with the pretty 
women is a direct result of the portraits he did 
for them along with the original poetry that 
accompanied them. Steve came to the Acade- 
my to learn to become the best Marine possi- 
ble. Morever, the Corps will certainly have a 
fine aviator in Fish. 


George came to the Navy straight out of 
high scnool in Fort Worth, Texas. He always 
knew how to enjoy life, even though his mind 
was clean and his heart was pure. The Drum 
and Bugle Corps, NA-10, and other musical or- 
ganizations took up much of his time at the 
Academy, but he never neglected his academ- 
ics. A Management major, he occasionally 
made the Supt's List and his QPR was always 
sufficient to get him by. "Goldie" always at- 
tacked things with enthusiasm, whether it 
might be his 5 a.m. scuba classes, or mile run. 
George usually had a joke or snappy remark to 
brighten up life at USNA. He always encour- 
aged others to look at the lighter side of things 
and to "put out for Navy." Goldie can look for- 
ward to a bright future after graduation, and 
will always be a credit to his stars and bars.

It took some time for Bill Graham to become 
acclimated to the cold winds off the Severn, 
coming from sunny Tampa, Fla., but once he 
experienced his first snow-ridden winter, he 
was broken in. Bill arrived at USNA with vi- 
sions of grandeur as a jet-Jockey behind the 
stick of a F-4 but this vision blurred as his 
20/20 dropped a notch or two. He was the 26th 
Company 'Tiomeroom" representative the first 
two years, but still won't take credit for the 
Army card section or the '72 spirit committee. 
Bill put his exceptional speed-afoot to score 
varsity numerals m high school and starred in 
the intramural sports of football, soccer, and 
Softball. A devout member of the "Six Pack," 
Bill was always up for a good party, whether it 
took place in the "field or at the Sheraton." 
Bill's amiable character and frequent smile has 
caused him few enemies during his four year 
tour at Navy, and you can bet that he'll keep 
up the good spirit when he gets those well de- 
served bars come June of '72. 


Craig came to the Academy from Tomah, 
Wisconsin. The trials and tribulations of a hard 
Plebe Year not affecting him at all, Craig 
quickly made a reputation as a straight shoot- 
er and a hard worker. Just as ouickly, he 
picked up numerous nicknames. "Tne Roman- 
ian Reindeer" made his mark Youngster Year 
as the unofficial company photographer and 
historian. Never one to be satisfied with the 
ordinary, "Hollywood's" snapshots are un- 
matched for originality. Second Class year 
"The Sinking Ship" swung into high gear. As 
President of the 26th Company CPA Club, 
"The CPA" pulled the 26th Company Grey- 
hounds through accounting. Wires was "Hair- 
less" favorite course and much of his free time 
was spent in studying practical applications of 
the cathode ray oscilloscope. Craig has estab- 
lished himself as a man that can be depended 
on to get the job done well. Craig plans to 
carry this dependability into Surface Line, 
where he is certain to distinguish himself. 


Hailing from Middle Tennessee, Fayette- 
ville, to be exact, Jess had no trouble adjusting 
to Navy life — after he got used to wearing 
shoes. Living proof that coordination strikes 
once every 3 minutes, he was affectionately 
known to nis classmates as "Thumper Rabbit. ' 
We could always find T. Rabbit bounding off 
across the yard in pursuit of a skirt. It was a 
wonder he could keep his mind on academics. 
Jess acquired his yawl command during 2/c 
Year, so he could go sailing off into the sunset 
with his favorite girl, of course. With thoughts 
of the fleet looming ahead, Jess attacked the 
idea of being a "Greyhound" with all his usual 
fervor. He'll be a welcome addition to any 
wardroom that will take him. Good luck down 
there in the black hole, Jess!

As the Country Gentleman from the dairy- 
land of the Blue Ridge, the "Pride of Hayes- 
ville, N. C," may be forever known by his 
rallying war-cry, "Chop-Chop-Chop-Chop- 
pers." Forsaking his beloved little Abarth and 
nis head of HoTstein, Larry came bound and 
determined to the Academy to replace his 
milking in the parlor for hosing 'em down from 
a chopper. His down home humor and Uncle 
Bob joltes, as well as his spontaneous buck- 
dancing, soon had his many friends calling him 
none other than "Groovy. ' Despite the "snow 
on the mountain" there was always plenty of 
"fire in the furnace" whenever Groovy un- 
wound at a party. When not found tinkering 
with his model 30 Smith and Wesson after var- 
sity pistol practice, Larry may be located be- 
hind a stack of Car and Driver or hunting 
down the nearest auto show. But, back in the 
hall, 'ol crowded was as much a creature of 
habit for studying as any one of his Papa's 
cows were for muking. But as his green fa- 
tigues may show, Larry's sole objective is to 
bear that "ball with the buzzard on top" and 
proudly wear the Marine green. 


Steve, better known to his classmates as 
"B," "Bee-Zee," "Ramage," or just "the 
Tooth" has left his mark at the Academy as a 
competitive, hard-charger on the athletic field, 
and as a non-sweat, academic slash in the 
classroom. An all-state football player in high 
school, Steve was an asset to the company 
teams. His fierce spirit many times left oppos- 
ing players fuming after the games were over. 
Away from the Academy he also left his mark 
as a hard-charger at the party scene, in An- 
napolis, Philadelphia, and the summer cruise 
circuit. From these various endeavors he most 
deservedly earned his membership in the Six- 
Pack and various other inter-academy frater- 
nities. Whether he decides to be a Greyhound, 
or an NFO, Steve's leadership and positive at- 
titude will always make an impact on those 
men working with him. 


Doug, known to many as just Kirks, came to 
the Naval Academy after passing up an ap- 
pointment at the Air Force Academy because 
it looked "too easy." Plebe Year did not slow 
Doug's enthusiasm for the Academy in the 
least and he made it through the first June 
Week with the same girl he started Plebe Year 
with. Youngster Cruise, Youngster Year, 2/c 
Summer, 2/c Year, and 1/c Cruise were just 
more chances for Kirks to have a good time 
and make good grades. Famous for his shiny 
shoes and animal impersonations. Kirks would 
have gone far in the Marine Corps if he had 
not gone Navy Air. We just hope for Doug's 
sake that they have some guns on the plane he 
flies so he can excel at what he likes best. Good 
luck, Kirks, and good hunting! 


Ed wandered into Mother "B" from Berke- 
ley Heights, New Jersey, where he graduated 
from G.L.R.H.S. He had little trouble making 
it through Plebe Year, except for a minor bout 
with academics. Ed was always out to his best, 
as member of the Plebe cross-country squad 
and company intramural teams, he had just 
one goal: winning. Come Youngster Year Ed 
turned things around academically by making 
Sup's List and has never been far from the 
mag^c 3.00 since. That same year he became 
active in both the Scuba Club and YP Squad- 
ron. Many chilly afternoons were spent out on 
the rough Chesapeake, running through cor- 
pens and turns. He later went on to get both 
nis OOD and command qualifications in the 
boats of the little grey fleet. Ed is looking for- 
ward to a long career as a Navy Line officer.

Dick came to sunny Annapolis from the cold, 
industrial, northern city of Syracuse, New 
York, with one purpose in mind; to make his 
career that of a professional naval officer. 
Plebe Year found him running his share of 
come-arounds and E.D., but still mana^ng to 
end up on the Dean's List. He later decided to 
devote less energy to academics and more to 
professionalism in the form of the YP Squad- 
ron. He became qualified to command as a 
Youngster and was one of the first in his class 
to command his own boat. "YP Lee," as he was 
known to his classmates, originally intended to 
enter the "silent service," and therefore to 
enter this branch, chose a Marine Engineering 
major. However, 2/c Summer persuaded him 
to set his sights on becoming a "Greyhound 
driver" in the fleet. "YP" will certainly in- 
crease the professionalism of any ship on 
which he serves. 


"Senor Biget" as he was familiarly known, 
came to the Greyhounds after one year at the 
University of Pittsburgh. Bob started out slow 
as a Plebe but soon became a frequent guest of 
the Dean's List and well versed in professional 
knowledge. Besides studies, mucn of Bob's 
time was devoted to company softball, volley- 
ball and basketball, the latter being his true 
sweetheart. Bob always had the ability to have 
fun and enjoy himself without acting anything 
less than a gentleman. (How's that, Mrs. 
Liggett?) The fond memories we have of Bob 
will be treasured as he will still remain Presi- 
dent of the "Italian 'E.L Club." Bob's pride in 
his uniform, school and nation will carry him 
far in a naval career. 


Geoff came to USNA via Sherman, 111., and 
one year at NAPS. His most noteworthy ac- 
complishment during four years was manag- 
ing to get caught for bagging a Dead Week 
lecture and restricting for June Week, Plebe 
year. When Geoff wasn't off on one of his 
many trips for the squash team. Glee Club, or 
Chapel Choir, he was taking off for weekends 
on Long Island, his home away from home. 
Geoff is one who is never at a loss for words, 
and he can always be counted on to liven up 
any party. Youngster and First Class cruises 
were enough to convince Geoff that the Grey- 
hounds of the Fleet were not his "Bag," so it 
looks like Navy Air will be receiving a fine, ca- 
pable, and determined officer.

Charlie came north from Starkville, Miss, to 
leave his mark on all who know him. Young- 
1 ster Year he took over the number one spot m 
the class and from then on "Numero Uno" led 
the way for his classmates. After a tour on the 
Plebe lightweight crew team, very few people 
ever outdistanced him, a trait that carried over 
into everything he did. Although Chemistry, 
sleeping, and trying to decide where to go on 
all his Supt's List weekends kept him busy, he 
always had time to stop and help anyone who 
came to him for help. A terror on the soccer 
and fieldball field. Char put in a lot of time on 
"extracurricular" activities. In the future, 
whether on the bridge of his Greyhound or 
hanging from a rope on the Field House roof, 
C. W. Will be breaKing the path for others to 
follow. The Navy can find none better. 


Larry came to the Academy directly out of 
high school from the Motor City. This Detroit 
Wheel was a conscientious student but found it 
difficult to resist frequent workouts on the 
blue trampoline. In h» tween these rigorous ac- 
tivities he found time for intramural sports as 
well as being the Greyhound's phantom bar- 
ber. He earned his N the hard way with a 
tough Spring practice in Annandale, Virginia 
and a season long contest at Main (0) during 
Youngster Year. Known as "LuLu" to his 
friends, he has worked hard in and out of the 
company. Whatever his choice for the future, 
those serving with him will benefit by his 


Big Phil, always busy, came to the Academy 
from one of those big Pennsylvania high 
schools by way of Bullis Prep. He is always one 
to enjoy his activities with the fairer sex. Just 
look at them in his cap, on his blotter; every- 
where. Physically he went so far as to try ev- 
erything from Rangerettes to telephone opera- 
tors. But better yet, "PJ" was the company rep 
for football for the good Class of 72. Since 
Plebe year, Phil has been playing ball and al- 
ways knocking heads on the field. His enthusi- 
asm was always great. As for company life 
Phil will always be remembered for nis Gato- 
rade during June Week. He even became a 
junior Greyhound by becoming a regular on 
the Friday and Saturday night vigils. Phil will 
do fine in Navy Line. His enthusiasm will 
carry him through life and with his Mechanical 
Engineering major, only the best can be 


Entering the Academy after a year at Bullis 
Prep School and a year in the Naval Reserve, 
John was quick to adjust to Academy life. 
Born and raised on a dairy farm not 50 miles 
from here he was used to working hard and 
having little time off. As the years progressed 
Cox distinguished himself as an academic non- 
entity, getting his 2.00 cumulative at the end 
of 2/c Year. But what he lacked in academics 
he made up in intramurals. Playing soccer, 
fieldball and lacrosse filled his afternoons. Un- 
fortunately, a serious knee injury and opera- 
tion slowed him down a bit. But the next year 
found him once again hitting and running; the 
only difficulty that he encountered physically 
was the Natatorium. He could swim well 
enough but the coaches required that the stu- 
dent oe above water and Cox was a sinker. On 
weekends John devoted his time to making 
quick hops to Connecticut to visit his second 
home. After graduation we'll find him on a de- 
stroyer, as can be expected of one of the origi- 
nal 26th Company Greyhounds. Go Hounds!

It's hard for a redhead, because of their 
scarcity, staring out of USNA, but to be a red- 
head and Italian, well . . .! That's Mike, and 
from the first time I laid eyes on him I knew 
he was going to be someone worth knowing; I 
mean, how many people do you know who can 
answer "pro" questions while chewing on 
pickles, onions and lemon peels? With his omi- 
nous beginning, Mike quickly found his spot in 
the company, attaching himself t« some of the 
quieter groups such as the Six Pack and those 

florious Greyhounds. His Youngster Year was 
ighlighted with his first trip west of Philadel- 
phia to Nebraska, and the winning of his "N" 
star, black type, that should have rated double 
stars since it kept him restricted through half 
of June Week. Mike will one day be known to 
every man on the Seven Seas because Mike is 
going to be the best of the Navy's Architects, 
and the ships they'll be riding will have Mike's 
innovations, you know how you're first impres- 
sions are usually right? Well, mine sure were 
right about Mike — he is someone really worth 


Whenever the "Do^" is not deeply engrossed 
in the stock quotations of the Wall Street 
Journal, he can undoubtedly be found reinforc- 
ing his reputation as the best customer the 
Steerage has ever known. Art's high school 
years at a military school enabled him to fit 
smoothly into the USNA routine, and we can 
all remember his booming voice leading us on 
the Plebe Summer drill field. Naturally, Art 
has earned his share of distinctions, including 
charter membership in the Century Club which 
holds hourly meetings at the Main Office 
every weekend. Oh, what a mid will do for his 
girl! It is well known that there are visions of 
airplanes dancing in his head, and the Dog has 
served notice that if the Navy does not save a 
plane for him at Pensacola, the paw will fall. 


Commonly known as "Scrote" by all those 
who love him, Eddie evenly divided his time at 
the Academy between his two great loves, 
crew and the rack. No man at Navy knew bet- 
ter than Eddie the glorious Severn's currents 
and tides as he spent 4 years stroking his way 
to 3 golden N's. While he was devoting his 
time to athletics, Eddie was also finding time 
to kick and gouge his way thru Navy academ- 
ics, a job he completed with much success. Not 
one to let his Germantown, Tenn. reputation as 
a Southern Gentleman go to waste, this son of 
the confederacy could be found chasing fair 
young chiquitas whenever the financial situa- 
tion allowed it. It is hard to put four years of 
his hard work, undying friendship and loyalty 
to the Academy in so few words, but upon 
graduation into the Greyhound fleet, the Navy 
can be assured of getting a dedicated young

To say there was something at the Academy 
that "Ralphie" wasn't involved in would be 
foolish because then it didn't exist. Born and 
raised in the health center of the East Coast, 
Jersey City, he was very adept in adjusting to 
all situations at the Academy, be they good or 
bad. Definitely the greatest social director 
since Mrs. M, Ralphie could organize, direct 
and carry out into success any party, blind 
date, sneaky duel or panty raid that happened 
to enter his mind. His invaluable membership 
on organizations such as WRNV, Brigade Hop 
Committee, Ring Dance co-chairman, and Sun- 
day School teacher were only equal to his spirit 
and fierce desire to win that he displayed in 
sports. A frequent visitor out to Doc's during 
tne Youngster and Segundo seasons at Navy, 
Ralphie earned his N* of the black species 
when a BOOW couldn't understand why he 
was a little late one evening. A member in 
high standing in both the illustrious Six-Pack 
and vaunted Greyhounds, Ralphie is seeking to 
be a pilot in the Corps, but whatever branch he 
chooses, the service is gaining an ambitious 
and talented leader! 


Orange, New Jersey, has the proud honor of 
claiming Gene Uricoli. Gene brought many 
strange habits with him when he came to 
USNA; such as howling at the MOOW his first 
night of Plebe Summer. Gene is also going to 
stand out in the memory of ENS Gurlev for his 
antics during that first summer. Wrestling 
was his favorite sport when he came to us, but 
since then he has played company light- 
weights, soccer, and was one of the star volley- 
ball players. Academics were not his main in- 
terest and many times he was diverted from 
his studies by such activities as watching the 
"tube" or attending Greyhound meetings in 
the Steerage. Graduation finds Gene looking 
towards the Corps, but going Greyhound is 
also a distinct possibility. 


After spending most of his life in Shippens- 
burg, Pennsylvania, Steve decided it was time 
to see the rest of the world. So he joined the 
Navy and somehow managed to spend four 
years on the banks of the Severn. "Wiest" 
never seemed to find academics too hard, and 
the results were evident in his high QPR and 
the frequent EI sessions held in his room. Di- 
viding nis time between intramural soccer, 
basketball and softball, and writing to a sweet 
young music major, he was always ready to 
lend a helping hand. A fierce desire to excel 
will carry Steve a long way, and the Navy will 
certainly benefit from his continuous effort to 
do his best. 


Willy came in from the sea and it'll be a long 
time before he returns if he has anything to 
say about it. He was one of the Academy's sen- 
ior men as a Plebe. To look at him it's hard to 
tell because he possesses the robust appear- 
ance that comes with life in Nebraska. Willy 
brought many things with him to the Academy 
from his many years of experience. The one 
that is most outstanding in him is a charm that 
is devastating. This certainly can be confirmed 
by almost any girl he has met. Steve was ready 
to do work when he came, as can be seen in his 
Aerospace Engineering major. With Steve, one 
thing that he always could be depended on for 
is to be there when he was needed, a better 
friend could not be found. The fleet will be an- 
other place for Steve to make himself known 
and respected as he has done at the Academy.

E. J., hearing the call of the sea back in his 
hometown of Springfield, Missouri, packed his 
bags and arrived at Canoe U. ready to show 
the Navy how it should be run. Keeping his 
chin in and his eyes in the boat, Eric chopped 
through Plebe Year knowing that as an upper- 
class he would find his ultimate rewards in the 
pad. When you found him awake, Eric could be 
round writing a letter to his "grease girl," 
Debbie, readmg a book, or doing his home- 
work. Each year during the winter season, he 
wouid be seen helping the fieldball team to an- 
other string of defeats. Always being enthusi- 
astic toward USNA Eric will have no trouble 
being a success in the fleet. 


As if NROTC wasn't enough, the "Mite," as 
he was called by "the group," came to Navy 
after one real good year of college at Auburn. 
You could often find him on any Sunday after- 
noon in a thrill packed touch football game on 
Farragut Field. His enthusiasm for his home 
state Tennessee football team never let you 
forget that he was truly a Southern mountain- 
man with a passion for football. Novella's subs, 
and his "sweetie" at Auburn. Despite the re- 
lentless attacks from the academic and execu- 
tive departments, Hugh managed to always 
get in a good hour of classical music. The fleet 
will be getting a "mite-ty" addition with the 
added spirit of Hugh. 


Cal came to Navy from New York, by way 
of Peekskill Military Academy. After the ini- 
tial shock of Plebe Summer, Cal emerged with 
an individuality unique in Naval history. While 
holding off the Superintendent and the Aca- 
demic Board with one hand, he fought a run- 
ning battle with firsties, grease, hippies, 
commies, and his roommate to arrive at his 
present position. A clever side step took Big 
Frank from the "Wires" Department to Op- 
erations Analysis Youngster Year. A member 
of the now famed Permanent PT Squad, by 

Graduation, "The Radish" will have run over 
000 miles, at a fairly reasonable speed. An 
Airedale at heart, often seen drooling over pic- 
tures of P-3's, he has been seen with a Cruiser- 
Destroyerman look on his face along with his 
Navv glasses. Armed with his William F. 
Buckley book and the Thoughts of Chairman 
Kline. Cal will always be followed by success, 
but at a respectful aistance.

Having attended two years of prep school, 
John entered Plebe year with a little more in- 
sight than most, and was immediately given 
command of his Plebe summer platoon. Re- 
cruited for football, Jack played defensive end 
for the Plebes, and defense for the Plebe la- 
crosse team. Due to either outside interests or 
age, John joined the intramurals and radiator 
squads during Youngster year. One of the in- 
vaders of Virginia Beach and Germany during 
Youngster cruise "Billy Boyle" headed for 
Pensacola during 2/c Summer with a burning 
desire to fly. He left with a full "bag" and a 
new outlook on the future. Jack earned a 
Black N-star during Youngster year. He got a 
second "Black N," but wound up the year on 
the Sup's List. John's desire to serve the Navv 
is exceeded only by the amount of time it took 
him to get into USNA. 


Coming from a Navy family and a Navy 
town, Norfolk, Rich decided to leave Old Do- 
minion College after Freshman year and 
transferred his biology major to the boat 
school. Plebe Year was a drastic change from 
the party life of a civilian college; but, with 
Navy Air in sight, he quickly settled down to 
four years of academics, professionalism, and 
the javelin. If not studying long hours to main- 
tain his grade average, brushing off, or coun- 
selling plebes, he could probably be found tear- 
ing up Thompson Field with his javelin. While 
not Olympic material, he was, however, good 
enough to bag the Spring p-rades. His devotion 
to duty, quest for knowledge, and optimistic 
outlook will undoubtedly take him far in his 
Navy career. 


Mike made the move from the shadows of 
Ute Mountain to the Severn shores. Hailing 
from Cortez, Colorado, he quickly became 
known as "Ute." Just existing through Plebe 
Year, "Ute" moved on to bigger and better 
things during Youngster vear. His name 
changed to "Goose," through no fault of his 
own. The O.D. compared his sideburns to 
Wyatt Earp's. He jumped to Sup's List for no 
reason at all. Perhaps his greatest accomplish- 
ment was that of tri-owner of "Sugar," a leg- 
end at USNA. Mike's second greatest accom- 
plishment was membership in the "Shady 
Grove Recreation Association." Firewater and 
good times made it the greatest thing since 
Cortez. Mike came to USNA to fly and buy a 
Vette. What else? Whatever his selection, he 
doesn't expect a second tour at USNA. "It was 
a nice place to visit!" says the Goose. 


For a man who thinks the best biography to 
go next to his picture in the Lucky Bag would 
be a blank page, Gary has accomplished a 
great deal in his stay at the Academy. He has 
met the academic cnallenges on the field of 
honor and come away the victor. In the extra- 
curricular world he was an organizer and ac- 
tive member of OPERATION QUICK- 
STRIKE and has collected more war games 
than the average squirrel collects nuts for win- 
ter. A fan of Naval Air when he arrived, Gary 
has become a devotee of the Silent Service 
since the ups and downs of 2/c Summer. He 
has kept one step ahead of Navy for four years 
and will probably hold the lead for the next 20 
or 30. Some day there will be a book entitled: 
SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED . . . maybe it 
will replace the Sea Power text. 


Seattle lost one of its most outgoing person- 
alities when Rog came to the Academy during 
that memorable summer of 1968. He brought 
with him a good record in both academics and 
athletics. This, coupled with many nights of 
hard study at the library, helped him achieve 
the goal of Sup's List and that extra weekend. 
During the rookie year, Rog was known for his 
competence in carrying out all duties the up- 
perclasses saw fit to assi^ to him. His ability 
and quick action was again noted as he showed 
his prowess as tight end, and helped lead the 
5th Batt gridiron to a championship. Whether 
it was on the athletic field, in the classroom, on 
a Glee Club trip, or in his capacity as company 
rep, his quick smile and outgoing nature 
helped win him many friends. Hoping to get 
into the submarine force, his positive attitude 
will be a great contribution to the Navy, and 
should take him far in the ranks of service to 
our country.

Nelson came to the Academy from Meredith, 
New Hampshire. Hard work and dedication 
produced great results for Nels. He soon be- 
came one of the top men in the company in ev- 
erybody's eyes. Most of Nels' hard work was 
done in the nets on the soccer field. After 
playing second team Youngster year, Nels 
came back from the Pensacola sun ready to 
play. He began his career by recording several 
shutouts on his way to an "N-Star," and then 
leading the team to the national tourney. The 
town of Annapolis was always pleased to see 
Nelson and his "color advisors" come into town 
to carry off all the free clothes. One of Nels' 
social prestiges was being president of the in- 
creasingly popular company "AA Club." It is 
popular opinion that whatever Nels does after 
graduation, Marine, Supply, Staff, or Intelli- 
gence Corps, or Civilian Line, he will be a suc- 


Bob . . . "Mad Dog," as most of his friends 
call him proudly haus from Northport, Long 
Island, New York. Noted more for his brawn 
than his brains, "Mad Dog" played varsity 
football his Youngster year until a persistent 
knee injury caused him to hang up the spikes 
and search out new endeavors. The dumb foot- 
ball player became a genius overnight to earn 
himself stars and a position on the All-Deans 
List. Batt lacrosse, company soccer, basketball, 
and heavyweights have all claimed his fame 
during his tour at the Academy. With Bob lies 
another keen interest and that s a petite brun- 
ette named Cindy who is one of those few 
"grease girls" that can put up with four years 
of endless waiting. Bob majored in General 
Management and plans to pursue that matter 
in the civilian world upon retirement. A 
happy-go-lucky fellow. Bob will be remem- 
herea for his imitations of a brown warbler. 


Steve, better known as "Young Miller" came 
to Annapolis from the backwoods of New 
Hampshire and promptly established himself 
as one of the more academically minded mem- 
bers of the class. Even with a major like Phys- 
ics, Steve always managed to get a 3.5 or 
thereabouts with no trouole. Despite his time 
consuming field of study, Steve always found 
time to help many of us who were not so gift- 
ed. "Young Miller's" most noted achievement 
during his four years was remaining complete- 
ly unknown to the company officer. When he 
wasn't dodgfing the company officer, Steve 
could be found either scuba diving or working 
on some electronic gadget. His most famous 
project was the $150 stereo amplifier that only 
fit up and looked like it was working. After 
graduation, Steve plans to put his Physics and 
electronic wizardry to good use at nuclear 
power school. With his clever wit, high intelli- 
gence and likeable personality, Steve is as- 
sured success in anything he undertakes.

Bix came directly to the Academy from 
Bishop Eustace Prep School and his hometown 
of Cinnaminson, New Jersey. He took Plebe 
Year in stride and after the hazing began to 
slack off, his marks began to pick up. His 
choice of Oceanography as his major and had 
to study every chance he got to keep the marks 
up. A sports enthusiast, he played company 
football and soccer, and battalion tennis. He 
was well known for the dating service he pro- 
vided for the company but never took advan- 
tage of this asset himself because his heart be- 
longed to his high school sweetheart. Whatev- 
er happens after graduation, you can bet that 
Bix won't stray far from that green Porsche 
and the pretty girl behind the wheel. 


"Hucker" is and always will be the brain 
center of the 27th Company. When a problem 
arises, Hucker is always there ready, willing 
and able to solve it even if it isn't in his special- 
ty, which is Math. When the lights are out at 
USNA, and the world is asleep, Paul begins his 
own studies and usually manages to stay 
awake 'til the reveille bell. Rare is the person 
who has seen him in the pad. An avid enthus- 
iast of everything, Paul is most enthused about 
a lovely brunette who was his high school 
sweetheart back home in New Jersey. Going 
steady, pinned, and engaged, Paul and Patty 
are always seen living it up. One of the most 
popular guys in the company, Hucker some- 
how managed to keep his friends even while 
they were standing weekend watches that he 
gave them — as he was also company watch 
coordinator. Underneath his studious and con- 
scientious manner is a cheerful and outgoing 
personality and an optimistic outlook that will 
take Paul far in life. 


"Mac" came to USNA the third son of a ca- 
reer Marine officer. He calls Charlotte, North 
Carolina, his home, Mac was considered by the 
first class during Plebe Year to be the ratiest 
of the ratey, and paid for it well under the 
competent airection of Rusty Thatcher '69 and 
the renowned, but now forgotten, "Bearwalk 
Alley." Tea tables for the Plebe swimming 
team saved him from total destruction, but 
also gave him the title of "bagger" among the 
upperclass. Youngster Year brought out the 
monkey in Mac, and while "monkeying" 
around the hall he received a brain concussion 
and a free ticket for one week at the Naval 
Hospital, Bethesda. Youngster Year brought 
Mac his N' in diving with two first places 
against Army. During June Week that year he 
pinned his hometown girl who he dated for the 
first time on New Year's Eve, after having 
called eight other girls first and finally giving 
in to fate. Constantly struggling to keep his 
head above the water, he can be seen keeping 
late hours with the coffee pot nightly. His ob- 
vious service selection is Marine Corps, as he 
prefers short hair to the nausea and confine- 
ment of a DD. 


It has been said that everyone at the Acade- 
my is famous for something and Jimmy is no 
exception. From the very first day he set foot 
inside the Academy walls as a midshipman he 
had iaut one thing on his mind: Navy Air. Al- 
though he was never strong in the physical sci- 
ences, especially Math, Jim had a way with 
words and a probing interest in anything that 
had to do with his major: Foreign Affairs. A 
veteran NAVFACer and a member of the 
USNA Foreign Relations Club, Jimmy still 
found time to serve as his class' Honor Rep and 
to take an active part in the formulation of 
'72's class policy as a member of the USNA 
Committee. As ne leaves the Academy for the 
greener pastures of the- real Navy, Jim looks 
forward to spending more time with a certain 
"little sister' and to driving, at last, his dream 
car. A determined worker and a loyal man to 
have behind you, Jim's future success is all but 
assured, whether in or out of the Navy! 


One of the "Rally Boys," "Lolly" came to 
USNA to play football. He started as a Plebe 
at running back, after which he lettered as a 
Youngster on the varsity team. Tim retired his 
cleats 2/c Year to pursue other pastimes. 
Being from Pine Bluff, Arkansas, "Lolly" 
could never completely get away from the hab- 
its of his homeland, "Hog Heaven." Always 
looking for a rally, Tim would do his best to 
have a good time, whether he had a cast on his 
leg, an electric toothbrugh, or a bathroom floor 
with no rug. A tri-owner of "Sugar" a distinc- 
tion in itself, Tim came into his own during 2/c 
Summer carousing between the "castle" and 
various other activities. Being the quiet type 
who always accomplishes what is expected of 
him, Tim will have no problems in his future. 
He will be most remembered for his athletic 
abilities, Razorback blood, and rallying habits.

"The Moke" came from the g^eat sun state 
of the West and tried to keep his body tanned 
and his hair golden bv sailing and swimming. 
After a brief period of the straight and narrow 
"the Moke" and "Pumpkin" Reyman (together 
called CINCLIBS) led an attack on ACTRAM- 
ID from a small renovated "castle" outside 
gate zero. "He" has several good points that 
serve as redeeming factors. He always has 
plenty of energy and used it on the BAG as a 
regular "Bike, on the Hop Committee, as the 
Ring Dance Chairman, and even as a Chapel 
usher. "The Moke"- even beats the academic 
departments for stars on a regular basis. 
Rumor has it that the "Moke" is preparing for 
a future attack on Navy Air. He is determined 
to infect it with fun, zest and excellent per- 
formance. He'll do it no doubt. 


Sandy came from the cold confines of Min- 
neapolis, Minnesota, searching for the excite- 
ment of the Naval Academy life. He managed 
to coast through Plebe year with little diffi- 
culty and even picked up some numerals for 
Plebe varsity swimming and batt water polo. 
Not quite fast enough for varsity competition, 
he stuck it out as a manager althougn he in- 
sists that he is still a breaststroker at heart. 
During the football season he and his room- 
mate could usually be found in the pre-game 
skits of the BAG in order to escape from 
march-ons. Bill always found the pad more ex- 
citing than his studies. Nevertheless he was a 
Permanent member of both the Sup's and 
lean's Lists. Bill should have as little trouble 
in mastering the real Navy as he has had at 


Coming straight to the Naval Academy 
from hign school, Art reluctantly gave up the 
pleasures of sun and fun in Fort Lauderdale, 
Florida. His dating habits were cut short after 
Youngster year. Finding the right girl from 
his hometown he got engaged in the beginning 
of 2/c Year, it looks like Art will join the ranks 
of the married man shortly after graduation 
(very shortly). Enjoying almost all water 
sports, especially scuba diving and driving fast 
boats; Art occasionally comes on dry land only 
to throw a bowling ball. Starting out his aca- 
demic career as a "Wires" major, the Electrical 
Engineering Department soon showed him the 
error in his ways and persuaded him to change 
his major to Operations Analysis. Gome service 
selection time Art will probably choose to go 
with Navy Air.

A West Pointer at heart, Glenn came to 
USNA with an aversion to water and the 
weaker sex. His time was often spent dreading 
the thought of his next swim class or trying to 

fet a date with one of the many girls in his 
reams, including even the President's daugh- 
ter. A valuable addition to the batt football 
team and on various company teams, Glenn 
still found time for the pad when swimming 
sub squad went out of season. A diligent work- 
er, he was often found up late studying for his 
Foreign Affairs major or working on his pet 
project, a book on General MacArthur. After 
graduation, Glenn plans to retire from aca- 
demics and head for the rolling decks of the 
destroyer Navy where he should have no 
trouble standing out. 


Ben "Pumpkin" Reymann came to the banks 
of the Severn from that Southern metropolis 
of Birmingham, Alabama. After doing a brief 
stint at Auburn University, Ben brought to the 
Academy that gentlemanly Southern friend- 
ship and wit that was to earn him his unique 
reputation. Never known to pass up a good 
rally, or a bad one for that matter. Pumpkin 
shotgunned himself into Brigade politics and 
his class treasurer position by maintaining that 
all problems can be discussed over a good cold 
"Bud," from ex-law brownies for Plebe Sum- 
mer squad leaders, to "Pocket's Raiders," to 
"unauthorized use of government vehicles" 
and sugar, Ben was always finding the good 
times; and distinctively earned his Black 
"N" 's. His enthusiasm, inspiring leadership, 
and sense of humor will find a huge welcome 
in the fleet when he becomes a Greyhound 


Tom's success at the Academy began with a 
flourish of glory as a batt football champion 
and continued with the rapid mastering of 
Plebe Year with a strongly supported right 
arm. During Youngster Cruise his prowess for 
surface line exerted itself and quickly became 
the driving force of his motivation at USNA. 
His destiny now clear, "The Dink's" reputation 
began to spread. From "The Phamtom Kicker" 
at Army parties to Trident Scholar on Pad 
Physics, to volleyball and fieldball fame, Stef's 
plowed his way through the obstacles of the 
num-drum life of a mid. With his mild man- 
nered personality, quick witted logical mind, 
unbelievable sense of humor, and fairness to 
all, Tom will certainly be the first among us to 
validate naval life and achieve his personal 


Coming from the land of 10,000 lakes, John's 
first love was, of course, water. This ^eat at- 
traction was expressed by John's participation 
in batt crew, where he excelled, and in his 
undying fondness to the tactical and naviga- 
tional aspects of YP's, where he was also, ah, 
er, exceptional. "D.J." was intimately involved 
in extracurriculars. Using his lyric tenor voice, 
he was the pride of the choir and Glee Club, 
and wooed many coeds along his travels. In ac- 
ademics "D.J." distinguished himself in his 
Math major by never studying, yet making oc- 
casional appearances on Sup s List. John also 
gave his support to NACA in whicn he en- 
riched his spiritual life. John's quick wit, perse- 
verance, and faith in GOD will insure him of 
much success in his naval career. 


Bob came to Navy from San Antonio, Texas, 
with the idea that he would purchase it at the 
end of his 1/c Year. "Zims" was a brainchild 
but it did not prevent him from fighting some 
classic battles with the academic department, 
from which he always emerged victorious be- 
cause of his remarkable ability to "bounce 
back" at the end of each semester. Bob was a 
natural athlete, who pulled the rare feat of va 1- 
idating everything the P.T. Department could 
test him on. A lover of good times, Zims be- 
came infamous for his success in the dating de- 
partment till he got engaged 2/c Year to a 
Southern lovely from the Lone Star State. 
During his stay at Canoe U. Bob demonstrated 
the initiative, drive and enterprise to make 
him one of the finest Marine officers ever to 
graduate from USNA.

It must have been the 18 dry years of arid 
Scottsdale, Arizona, that brought "Fritz" to 
the Naval Academy. Never claiming to be 
much of a ladies' man, "Fritz" spent his week- 
ends playing his trombone for the NA-10 or 
skydiving at Pax River. Grades were never 
much of a problem for Fritz and more often 
than not the words "Sup's List" appeared at 
the bottom of his grade card. Lacking a normal 
mid's passionate desire to perform on the drill 
field, Fritz decided that he would rather spend 
his afternoons sailing on the waters of the Sev- 
ern as a member of the dinghy team. Fritz will 
always be remembered for his sense of humor! 
Especially his ridiculous puns which sent more 
than one mid on an unexpected trip to the 
nearest head. With future plans leaning 
towards the NFO program, Fritz is anxiously 
awaiting his commission. 


In the summer of '68 "G. T." traded the sun- 
tanned beach bunnies and white sands of Flor- 
ida for the rigors of Plebe year. Unable to re- 
place the Bancroft system with his own he 
practiced discreet rebellion. Having trouble 
with figures, not the femmine kind, and fol- 
lowing one miscarriage, he left the English 
Department and joined the Junior Executives 
of the Management Department. As a member 
of the company soccer and softball teams and 
manager of battalion bowling, he firmly be- 
lieved in individual workouts. His hobbies in- 
cluded scuba diving, dreaming of NPO status, 
driving his roommates out b^ constantly prac- 
ticing his guitar, timing tnal runs from the 
Charter House, and searching for that famous 
Maryland landmark named after our Comman- 
dant. Glenn wanted to hit the fleet at Pensaco- 
la, but he had his plans changed for him. We 
wish him success in whatever his final choice 


George entered the Ensign factory directly 
out of nigh school and proved himself more 
than capable as a Plebe. With his rookie year 
behind nim he became an avid lover of black 
Russians, good music, fine clothes, fast cars 
and young lovelies outside of crabtown. His 
talents were well invested in a stinging tennis 
racket, the pistol team, and the Scuba Club. 
Academically, he occasionally found himself on 
the Sup's List whenever he could side step the 
swimming sub squad. In the summertime he 
was noted for frequent excursions from his na- 
tive Arizona to California, Mexico, Hawaii, 
Europe and the whole length of the East 
Coast. A Navy and Air Force iunior, George 
will be unequaled as a Navy pilot.

It was a drastic change for Mike, coming 
from a graduating class of 25 to the hallowed 
halls of Bancroft. Hailing from the famous 
town of Tuxedo, New York, 6'3" Mike was re- 
cruited for basketball. However, he sacrificed 
playing varsity ball in order to form Vi of one 
of the best two man teams ever seen at Navy. 
Always a hard worker, "Brens" did pretty well 
with the studies even though the profs he kept 
getting were always on the tough side. Al- 
though he studied a lot, Mike always managed 
to find time to rack. A staunch supporter of his 
home state, Mike would never turn down a bet 
on the knicks, the Mets, or the Jets. Mike's 

food humor, easygoing manner, and vast 
nowledge of all types of sports caused him to 
be well liked by all who knew him. Taking 
these attributes with him into the fleet, Mike 
will make a fine naval officer. 


Eddie shuffled into life in "Mother B" from 
Chicago. He soon became known as "grunt" 
for obvious reasons, as well as one of the non- 
sweats of "Club 28." Through hard work he 
managed to work his way down from five 
stripes on the swimming sub squad and up 
from a tough fight with the academic boards 
and their turnback policy. When he wasn't 
studying or surrendering to the pad monster, 
Eddie was on the football field, earning the 
name "little man" from the coach. Never one 
to let p)eople labor under misconceptions Eddie 
spent many hours rapping about Stokely, An- 
gela, Eldridge and the rest. We will not soon 
forget his study hour greetings or his sack of 
tricks and other dark Rumor. 


After attending the different high schools, 
"Clance" settled down on the shores of the 
Severn and went to sleep. Thanks to two al- 
phas in "Wop" Plebe Year, he proceeded to go 
the distance with "Club 28." Seldom did he 
come back from the mailbox with a smile on 
his face, but when he did you were ready for 
the old phrase: "I'm in love." For Dion, athlet- 
ics were always an anticipated pastime in the 
afternoons, whether it be volleyball, squash or 
sailing. Clance always got surf fever when the 
first ^w leaves began to sprout in the Spring. 
Graduation will make Clance the third mem- 
ber of his family to fly the friendly skies of 
Navy Air. 


When Pat left Troy, New York, to come to 
Annapolis, he brought with him the desire and 
determination to excel. Plebe year presented 
no real problems and the gold stars wnich were 
to become a permanent part of his uniform 
first appearea above his anchors. Although 
"Dunner" was almost always working hard, he 
was never too busy to help out his less fortu- 
nate classmates. When he wasn't studying, Pat 
could be found either at some extracurricular 
activity or attending a striper meeting. Oc- 
casionally though, he found the time to join 
the guys for a touch football or basketball 
game. Pet's greatest quality, noticeable to 
even the most casual observer, is his desire to 
do an outstanding job, -which has remained 
with him since the day he took his oath of of- 
fice. That Pat was able to keep what so many 
people lose during their four years' tenure is 
proof that the fleet will gain an excellent 


"Wild Bill" or "Doc" as he is known on the 
diamond, comes to us from Homewood, Illinois. 
Bringing with him a keen interest in debate, 
German, the Marine Corps, and his Mickey 
Maus comic books (the Germans' Mickey 
Mouse). Bill could be found most Fall and Win- 
ter afternoons haunting the passageways of 
Sampson Hall, because the debate quarters 
were his second home. Being an avid baseball 
fan Spring days found Bill with a score sheet 
in his left hand, a hot dog in his right, and a 
transistor radio tuned to any ball game, 
plugged into his ear. As for service selection — 
while Bill is no longer set on getting his 
mouseketeer ears, he is determined that he 
will never go surface line — happy sailing Bill. 
But to whatever branch he does decide to enter 
he will bring a large professional knowledge 
and dedication. So good luck Bill — the club 
house will miss you.

Lance left the sun and fun state of Califor- 
nia to come to Crabtown. With an enthusiasm 
for East Coast weather that lasted for two or 
three hours, he plunged right into Plebe Sum- 
mer. Quickly learning his left foot from his 
right foot, Lance was soon able to march with 
the best of them (getting extra practice time 
on Saturday). Plebe academics proved to be 
something of a hassle, but concentration, long 
hours of study, and a little luck pulled Lance 
through; since Plebe year, his grades have 
been steadily improving. Athletic period would 
find Lance m the swimming pool, on the foot- 
ball field, or in a knockabout. It was Lance's 
interest in scuba diving which prompted him 
to become an Oceanography major. Lance is 
one of those people who spells Navy: 0-C-E- 
A-N. He plans a future in the surface Navy. 
Lance, with his dedication, professionalism, 
and commonsense, would do well in this or any 
other Navy. 


Ronnie Rocker Tecumseh Lanning came to 
us from the "gay life" in the love city of San 
Francisco. His full athletic scholarship put him 
through one year at NAPS and ultimately 
brougnt him to the big time at USNA. Ron 
was a Freshman standout on- the gridiron, 
catching eleven touchdown passes for a Navy 
record. As an upperclassman, he concentrated 
his talents on lacrosse, being rewarded with an 
N-star as early as his Youngster year. His ro- 
mantic life can be summed up in one word — 
None. Although not completely true to his 
motto: "Nice guys finish last, ' Ron gained 
many friends and two grease stripes. Assured 
of a figurehead role in the Navy's future, Ron 
has the ability to become one of our outstand- 
ing leaders. 


It was quite a step from little Jacksonville, 
Alabama, to Annapolis, especially for a self- 
confirmed ship-hater, but tne adjustment was 
as smooth as Southern Comfort for Mike 
Franklin. The easygoing Southerner brought 
with him an infectious pride in Alabama foot- 
ball, a passion for the Beatles and a reverent 
respect for "Bear" Bryant, which he shared 
freely with anyone at any time. Mike worked 
deceptively hard, and soon established himself 
as a resident member of the Dean's List, but 
studies were never allowed to interfere with a 
night out with the boys or a pick up game of 
basketball. His friends weren t the only ones 
subjected to his charm, however, as more than 
one Southern lass fell to a smooth, "Yes, 
Ma'am," and those boyish good looks, high- 
lighted by a mop of hair that never came close 
to meeting Academy standards. A love of 
speed makes Mike a prime candidate for 
'Vettes and Jets after graduation - he should 
excel in both.

Having lived all over the world sis a Navy 
Junior, Steve finally came to Annapolis where 
he experienced some of the best years of his 
life. Then in June 1968 Steve entered the 
Academy and moved in with "Club 28." For 2 
years, aptitude was Stevie's least worry as he 
attempted to adjust to the "uncollege." Known 
affectionately as "Lieutenant Evans," Steve 
finally made his marks and began to enjoy all 
of the great benefits of being on the Sup's 
List. "Ev-bo" could always be found on tne 
athletic field playing company soccer and foot- 
ball, or batt lacrosse. He enjoys the heaviest 
music and will forever be making friends, with 
his sense of humor and noted sarcasm. 1977 
will find civ-line anxiously awaiting Steve 
Evan's arrival. 


The "Frailman" came to USNA straight 
from high school in Lake Forest, Illinois, and 
quickly adapted to the rigorous routine which 
confronted nim. He had an uncanny ability to 
use study hour to his best advantage, spending 
many fond evenings doing intense unaercover 
work. Despite his unique study habits, Don 
was always one up on the academic depart- 
ment, malcing good use of his "golden arm" 
which he developed after long hard hours with 
the Plebe and varsity baseball teams. His smil- 
ing face and good disposition made every 
"group shot" worth remembering. Whether his 
choice be Supply Corps or surface line, the 
Navy is undeniably fortunate in being able to 
claim Don as one of its very own. 


Chris came to the Naval Academy from 
sunny Tampa, Florida, and with him he 
brought his wit, cheerfulness and good looks to 
make life more pleasant for those of us who 
were fortunate enough to know him. A star on 
the athletic field and in the classroom as a For- 
ei^ Affairs major, Chris could never be found 
with a book when there was a football game to 
be played or some fun to be had. But these 
were not the only interests of Chris, as his 
voice became well known by everyone as a 
sportscaster for WRNV and as the play-by- 
play voice of Navy football coverage for 
WMID-TV. Chris didn't confine himselfto the 
accomplishments of the Naval Academy total- 
ly, as he strode through the social world as 
only a true Southern Gentleman could. Christ 
Heath will always be remembered by his class- 
mates and friends and cannot fail to continue 
his success in the naval service. 


John first wandered into the Academy from 
Niles, Illinois. Not being able to find his own 
way home, he decided to adopt a new one. 
After adjusting to life here, he coined the 
motto: "Early to bed, early to rise and plenty 
of rack time during free afternoons." Study 
hour usually found nim in a battle between a 
game of bridge and a thermo test the next 
morning. Weekends were always occupied 
with either fencing or girls, but more often the 
latter. An Aero major set his course for a fu- 
ture in Navy Air. 


Ray, or "Raybo," but known to his close 
friends as just 'Bo," has had his share of good 
times in Annapolis; most of them, however, 
were before he entered the Academy. In the 
warm weather if Bo wasn't dancing around in 
the lacrosse goal, he was in O.C. with surf- 
board in hand, or shooting the curb on his 
skateboard. Bo deserves credit for drinking 
more beer on the weekends his Plebe Year 
than most mids do their first class year. Well 
done, Bo! Holding the envied distinction of 
being the last Plebe in "Club 28," Bo was per- 
petually conscious of his aptitude. Just prior to 
any inspection, be it large or small, you could 
find him asleep. This, among his many other 
talents should serve Ray well after graduation.

"Nel" came to Navy from a mere hour's 
drive away, Falls Church, Va. Being a Navy 
Junior, Jonn had little problem adjusting t<) 
USNA. His silly disposition and crazy jokes 
carried him through rookie year and kept 
things lively the rest of the way. It was while 
he was at the Academy, that John discovered 
the need to become a Christian. Many hours 
were spent in the Chapel praying and singing 
praises to God, for himself and the rest of the 
company. Never letting the Academic Depart- 
ment completely defeat him, John managed to 
struggle tnrough 4 years of his tough Ocean- 
ograpny major, by the grace of God. Nel al- 
ways welcomed a relief from the day's activi- 
ties by pursuing his true love, music. A versa- 
tile musician, he starred for the NA-10, Glee 
Club, and Choir and was continually listening 
to one of his 100 albums. John could always be 
seen trying any and every intramural sport 
and enioying it. His enthusiasm and good na- 
ture should follow him through his naval 


John came to Navy from that booming me- 
tropolis of Peekskill, New York, and after hav- 
ing a few problems with "the t-shirt and co.," 
settled down to a productive stay at the Acad- 
emy. John's way with words and his ability to 
use the English language to a great extent, 
would find nim the 'mam speaker" at any of 
the company gouge sessions, and he even had 
an eloquent way of statementing form 2's. 
During the year, "Tin Grin John ' would be 
found with a broken finger, a soccer ball, a 
baseball bat, or any combination thereof. As 
company honor rep, John always managed to 
keep the Plebes well informed and up to date 
on the concept that he so energetically sup- 
ported and believed in. Whether John chooses 
the sub-surface Navy or the Judge Advocate 
General as service selection, he will be an Eisset 
to the Navy and the naval service. 


Bill came running to the open arms of Moth- 
er "B" from Bridgeport, Connecticut, with 
stars in his eyes to fulfill a lifetime dream. 
After validating Plebe Year by virtue of his 
unique quality of never being noticed, he was 
reaay for the academic rigors of USNA. Work- 
ing hard to maintain slightly better than aver- 
age grades, he still had plenty of time to spend 
with the two loves of his life — his girl and his 
guitar. He could always be found playing with 
one or the other. Rumor has it that he intends 
to marry his girl since guitars make lousy 
wives. Bill's easygoing manner and nonexis- 
tent temper made him everybody's friend. He 
was always willing to lend a helping hand or 
give advice. Known as the "company liberal," 
he won fame with his intellectual interests and 
his "subversive" activities. Since Bill's eyes 
bilged out on him Youngster Year, it looks like 
the surface Navy will receive the services of 
one who will surely become a fine officer.

"Matt" came to the "Bosom" of Mother "B" 
from SaUsbury, Md., known mainly because of 
its position on the O.C. straightaway and its 
association with the cuHnary delight from 
USNA's own kitchens. "Conns" quickly 
learned what the system was all about after a 
brief encounter with an ACTRAMID passerby 
Plebe Summer. Social life was never a problem 
for Matt as he and a certain charming brown 
eyed blonde were frequently seen together, as 
oiten as not on the road to the terrapin. Hand- 
some of the face and hairy of the lepjs, possess- 
ing an honest smile and an infectious laugh, 
his witticisms and antics provoked much cheer 
and made life at Navy more bearable for 
many. His academic abilities were directed 
mainly towards boats, computers and manage- 
ment. Often he would be seen counselling in 
these areas in-between endless conversations. 
With his many talents and good natured and 
easygoing personality. Matt is destined to do 
well m whatever field he chooses and will be a 
welcome addition to any ready room. 


After a year of partying at the Davis cam- 
pus of the University of California, Greg made 
the long trip east to the Academy from his 
home in Sacramento, Calif. Academics were 
never a problem as "Puter Man" not only 
proved himself to be number one in "wires, 
but also number one in just about every other 
academic course there was. A familiar sight 
was someone coming for help in some off-the- 
wall course only the "Puter" would under- 
stand. Academics was only one of many sides 
Greg showed. When he wasn't studying or 
helping someone, he could be seen playing in 
the NA-10, playing golf or tennis, or hitting his 
soft one handed jumper as part of one of the 
best two man basketball teams the Academy 
has ever seen. Graduation should see Greg re- 
turning to his beloved West Coast for either 
some post-graduation work or a surface line 
assignment. No matter what, though, the 
Navy is certainly gaining a fine officer in 


As a frustrated college student, Tom joined 
the Navy. As a frustrated sailor, Tom worked 
his way to NAPS. After a year of frustration 
at NAPS he came to the Naval Academy. 
Through these years of frustration Tom 
gained enough maturity and humility to start 
His midshioman life as both 4/c 6 striper and 
class presiaent. With an itchy finger he set rec- 
ords on the rifle range Plebe Summer and 
went on to letter on the varsity rifle team. 
Even with a Physics major, studies came easily 
for Tom and his spare time was used warding 
off the pad monster. He strode for quality not 
quantity in his romantic endeavors and seemed 
to attain this goal very well. Because of his 
deep interest and keen ability in Physics and 
an easygoing nature, a bright future awaits 
him in whatever road he chooses to follow. 


"Skamp" came to the 28th Company from 
the AU-American city of Kalamazoo, Mich. 
After a brief appearance at Oklahoma Military 
Academy, Bob displayed his marching prowess 
as an out of step guidon bearer during his 
Freshman summer at Navy. Getting into the 
Academy was easy for Bob, because of his full 
athletic scholarship in football and track. 
Staying was another story. Tecumseh had a 
habit of throwing back the pennies Bob threw 
for good luck on his exams. His women had 
only two comments about Bob: "What a man, 
Skamper," and, "I gotta go home now Skam- 
per." His infectious room shaking laugh was 
typical of his easygoing nature. Whichever 
road Bob chooses to travel, either green or 
blue, he has a fine career ahead of him. 


Jerry came to the Annapolis Canoe Club 
from the thriving metropolis of Deming, New 
Mexico. He brought with him a keen interest 
in trucks, racing cars and the tin-can Navy. 
His love of racing cars was surpassed only by 
his devotion to his one-and-only back among 
the tumbleweed. "Seybs" had the distinction 
of being the first Plebe in the company to re- 
turn from Christmas vacation engaged. He 
claimed to "still read the menu," but everyone 
wondered. After his interest in surface line 
died, he planned to fly P-3's. Since the start of 
an Ensign cruise for graduates, however, he 
has been eyeing the soft life of the men in 
green who fly. Due to his uncanny ability to 
carry on an unemotional conversation, success 
and good fortune will always ride shotgun for 
the ^th Co. cowboy. 


Known as "Clay," "Chip," or "Lem," his tal- 
ents are as varied as his nicknames. To list a 
few — studying a total of 5 hours per semester 
and pulling 3.5 s, being the only good player on 
a 4 year losing volleyball team, and winning 
the award for being the biggest non-sweat in 
the company. After leaving the homestead in 
Troy, Alabama, Clay found himself locked in 
the jaws of Navy and Plebe year. After get- 
ting through the year with only one PDA of- 
fense, he quickly proved himself able to skate 
through the system on the most golden part of 
his anatomy. He proved it time and again after 
that by sporting the latest styles in formal 
shirts and hair length. A firm oeliever in the 
two party system — one on Friday and one on 
Saturday for Clay, there could never be 
enough of the lusty life. Because he gets less 
seasick than air sick, the surface line will be 
seeing the likes of "Likeable Lem."

Dale's introduction to Naw came a long 
time before he got here, since lie came from a 
naval background. When we got here they told 
us the best way to get through was to remain 
as inconspicuous as possible. Obviously this has 
been Dale's secret to success. Life doesn't 
phase him and he doesn't phase life. His second 
year he was awarded the name "Gaffer" be- 
cause they found something that finally 
phased him (and in a bad way) — running! His 
third year he found his true mterest. Majoring 
in Literature, he found rack 301 his favorite 
elective. All in all he is an exceptionally crea- 
tive person if one takes the time to observe. 
He has taken several tours in the Art and 
Printing Club, and should make his mark in 
this man's Navy, but I wouldn't hold my 
breath waiting for an explosion, he doesn t 
work that way! 


Rick, the oldest of his family's three sons, 
hails from Richmond, Virginia, where he was a 
letterman and student government president. 
His interest in that field carried through as he 
served his class as company rep and later as 
battalion rep and chairman of several class 
committees. It took nearly all of Plebe Year to 
change Rick from the civilian line to a Navy 
type, and we remember well the topper when 
he took a young lady through the 4th Wing to 
Dahlgren in order to avoid the deluge of rain 
outside. Although always enjoying company 
soccer in the fall, he decided to give brigade 
boxing a swing in his junior vear. One can al- 
ways count on a friendly smile from Rick, and 
we will enjoy flying the friendly skies of Navy 
Air with him after our brief sea tour. 


Hailing from New Bedford, Mass., "Duke" 
came to USNA to make his mark, and that he 
has done in fields as varied eis academics to 
sailing and over to ham radio operating. Fre- 
quenuy visiting the Dean's List, ne was known 
lor his academic skills. A common sight was 
someone going to Duke for help on a "wires" 
problem. Afternoons were sacred to Duke and 
ne could always be found in one of three plac- 
es: sailing, the radio shack or his pad, P-rades 
not being his style, he successfully avoided 
them after first set Plebe Year. Not wanting 
to stagnate during the evening hours, he was 
always either studying, playing bridge, or 
reading Motor Trend or Popular Science. After 
graduation Duke plans to make his mark 
under the sea.

Johnny came to the wonderful world of 
Navy from the wonderful world of Coors, 
mountains and men, Missoula, Montana. 
Fiercely proud of both his worlds, "J. G.," put 
forth his usual best and showed his great abil- 
ity to make friends and lose girls. Never one to 
let the system change his firmly held beliefs, 
he would defend to the death his famed bulle- 
tin boards when they came into danger from 
the "rock." When he wasn't trying to wade 
through the well written professional course 
books, he could always be found either in the 
handball courts, in the passageway with his 
weights or in an all night bull session. Loving 
the Air, Johnny's dreams were ruined along 
with his eyes Plebe Year. His dedication to the 
service and country cause him to lean towards 
green rather than blue, but whichever way he 
goes, the naval service is surely receiving the 
very best in our Johnny U. 


The longing for an N-star in baseball pro- 
vided George with the prime motivation need- 
ed to propel him through his USNA career. 
The Baltimore-bred first baseman (Boog who?) 
overcame his origin to gain many friends dur- 
ing his four years here. Classes never gave 
much trouble to George, an Ocean Engineering 
major, who made the Dean's List more than 
once, but swimming was another story, and 
many hours were spent determinedly thrash- 
ing about in the instruction pool with the sub 
squad. A fierce competitor in the baseball dia- 
mond and a dedicated, sincere person else- 
where, George could nevertheless be per- 
suaded without too much trouble by his friends 
to stray from the ways of the straight and nar- 
row to a certain local tavern for some good fel- 
lowship and . . . ah . . . refreshment. His explo- 
sive temper never lasted long, and was always 
overshadowed by a good natured reliability 
that made him respected and liked by those he 


Steve hails from Greenville, Michigan. Be- 
tween golf and his ^rl Dolores, Steve barely 
managed to squeeze m enough time for study- 
ing, but somehow managed close to a 3.00 
overall in his Physics maior. He enjoyed just 
about all sports in general, with skiing ranked 
at the top. There seemed to be some question 
whether that Cougar was Steve's or his girl's, 
but we all know that Steve would never lie 
about such a thing — would he? With Navy 
Air, his choice for service selection, Steve "sea 
legs" Wilkie, will probably live up to his nick- 
name in the fleet. "Wilker" liked having a lot 
of fun, and always had a kind word and smile 
for you, but he was especially helpful to his 
roommate in the Math Department! 


Dennis came from the hills and stills of Ten- 
nessee to share with many his profound knowl- 
edge of the bovine species. A couple of untime- 
ly injuries prevent him from making use of his 
badly needed talent with a basketball, but 
Dennis still finds a spot on a varsity squad 
each Spring or he tears up the turf on the 
Academy's golf course. No girl has yet man- 
aged to clamp any chains on Dennis, and Den- 
nis never quite got a grip on the Academic De- 
partment. He selected a major in Economics as 
the only way to learn to five with his Navy 
pay. With a blessing from the "God of 2.00, ' 
and the word from sick bay, Dennis will most 
likely be riding the waves for quite a while 
after graduation. 


The guy who led the pack in many a cross 
country run Plebe summer, Chris Yates pur- 
sued the physical as well as the intellectual, 
excelling more in the former than the latter, 
however. Never to be found far from his home- 
work, he carried "wires" problems to the Notre 
Dame game, flash cards out to lunch, and lord 
knows what to the 6th Wing basement! Ingen- 
iously setting up his own self-made, self- 
played, string orchestra in his room, he made 
continuous music — usually starting about 1 
a.m. Roller coasters were always his bag and 
that, together with a thriving interest in Aero 
Engineering should set him in good stead as a 
pilot. However, I must warn the Marine Corps 
that Chris will somehow add an interesting 
sidelight to the fighting force!

Finding il difficult to make the change from 
a Southern California surfer and a high school 
football hero to a Plebe at the Naval Academy, 
it took "Merle" a long time to get adjusted. 
However, in keeping with his character, he 
strove to excel in everything he did. An ex- 
tremely determined individual. Merle man- 
aged to scrape his way through the confusion 
of an Aerospace major, and maintain around a 
3.0. Always an avid participant in Academy ac- 
tivities, mainly "Hermann Hesse" poker and 
the rack, he was forever on the go. His cease- 
less supply of mail (?) from females far and 
wide always amazed us all, and it seemed as 
though he was forever tracking down the one 
that got away. Hoping to pursue a career in 
Naval Aviation, he is looking forward to going 
back to Pensacola. 


Jer came to 'ole USNA via the Naval Acade- 
my Prep school after a short lived stint as an 
"Air-dale." A skiing accident ended a promised 
track career but didn't stop Jer from a heavy 
schedule in the intramural program. Being a 
California boy, he took his place on the compa- 
ny volleyball team and served with valor on a 
regimental champion lightweight football 
team. Taking his turn at both Protestant and 
Catholic Chapel, Jer showed his ability to go 
both ways, or with either hand. Serving as 
company commander 2/c and 3/c years, as 
well as 1/c year, Jer was always a kingpin in 
company business; especially in any party 
planning. Despite constant ribbing about his 
being the "old man" of the company, Jer dis- 
played a constant sense of good humor that 
will stand him in good stead wherever he 
goes. Navy Air will gain a valuable, asset if 
those Greyhounds don't steal him during our 
post-grad "pleasure cruise." Who said . . . ! 


Joe, perhaps better known as "Baby Face 
Donlan," came to Annapolis after a sterling 
high school career at Fenwick High School lo- 
cated in Oak Park, Illinois. Plebe year gave 
him little trouble, so from the very beginning, 
he was able to give a tremendous amount of 
time and effort to the opposite sex, which re- 
sulted in a consistently filled mail box. Al- 
though Joe was not one to hit the books with 
an undue amount of vigor, he did have a knack 
for getting "the gouge when it was necessary 
and never had any real problems with academ- 
ics during his stay at USNA. After completing 
a major in Oceanography, Joe hopes to pursue 
a career in Naval Aviation. His undying sense 
of humor and straightforward honesty has 
won him many friends at the Academy and 
will undoubtedly continue to do so throughout 
his career.

Bill claims not only a unique name (the only 
Ballweber to have attended the Academy to 
the best of his knowledge), but also a unique 
hometown: Anchorage, Alaska, where he has 
many friends due to his 7 years' residence 
there. He is well known for his Plebe Summer 
"whisp)er cheers," and his strict avoidance of 
anv cheerleading after those two months. 
While at the Academy he has the distinction of 
being awarded the Black "N" (and 75 demer- 
its) for action above and beyond the call of 
duty during 2/c Summer. His 3/c athletics 
were taken up by attempts up in the wrestling 
loft, his attempts by the same sport being 
brought to an abrupt end by a broken ankle in 
the l^ginning of the 1970-71 wrestling season. 
Bill's other activities included MTS and the 
scuba club and at nearly any time he could be 
seen toting a scuba tank that possibly weighed 
more than he did. His natural ability extended 
to two languages as his major was Latin 
American area studies. 


Jim came to Navy from North Little Rock, 
Arkansas, after a high school career as a star 
football player. Very early in Plebe Summer 
he acquired the name "Porky" and it has stuck 
ever since. He lost his chance to become a 
member of the Big Blue when the outcome of 
a "scrum" put him in the hospital with amne- 
sia. Plebe year went pretty fast but it always 
seemed like years till he next saw "big 
momma." Youngster Cruise to Hamburg and 
Copenhagen turned out to be an inebriating 
exf)erience; on liberty and at all night card 
parties on ship he was careful not to let the 
professional aspect get in the way. After one 
last try at Navy football, and one more concus- 
sion Porky resigned to being a team manager 
and general optimist. His academic loves of 
Italian and Chemistry hindered his QPR until 
Youngster Year when he slashed out and 
joined the philosophy "anything over 2.0 is a 
waste of good TV time." Following graduation 
Jim expects to drive boats for about 5 years 
and then settle down to a good job and a happy 


"Father Del" came to Canoe U. after spend- 
ing a year at Bellarmine College and four 
years at a Seminary. He always managed to 
come out on top in academics despite a raging 
battle with wires. Even though he was a Sys- 
tems major the Bull Department never got 
him down. After the rigors of Plebe year and a 
set of worn out sweat gear, Youngster Cruise 
to Hawaii proved to be a very memorable ex- 
perience, along with New Year's in Akron. A 
firm believer in Southern hospitality, Del al- 
ways seemed to have a drag when he wanted 
one. Who were those nurses; A reliable source 
of computers gouge, "Fancy Farm" was also 
the local dispenser of clean jokes. As varsity 
tennis manager Youngster Year Del finally 
validated P-rades. Sunday mornings always 
found him singing his heart out with the Cath- 
olic Choir while the afternoon usually found 
him wrinkling his sheets. 2/c Summer con- 
firmed his desire to fly. Upon graduation the 
Navy, hopefully via P.G. School, will be blessed 
with a truly outstanding and determined 
young pilot destined for the stars. 


Paul "Monsterman" Devillier came to the 
Academy from Louisiana, and has been keep- 
ing his nose clean ever since. Right away he 
showed a zeal for the system and went on a 
stringent physical fitness program, which kept 
him off the ' fat" squad. His interest in subma- 
rines was always evident because he spent a 
great deal of his time on the sub squad. If class 
standing were based solely on swimming, Paul 
would have been "anchor man." After losing 
the "Lee Card" look alike contest, Youngster 
Year, Paul was maniacally depressed, and 
spent most of his free time in the pad. He did 
most of his learning by osmosis, and subse- 
quently narrowly escaped the Academic 
Board. Since he had never played soccer be- 
fore it was only natural that he play company 
soccer. He was constantly being lowered over 
the seawall to grab those wet balls. When 
Paul gets out of the Academy he plans to 
drive ships, planes, or fleet hogs. 



Joe arrived at Navy after spending his en- 
,tire life away up North in Sharon, Mass., home 
of the "Budacfo." He soon went on a lose 
weight quick program along with an accom- 
panying physical fitness program. After a 
*lebe year fogging quite a few sweaty miles 
and a not too impressive QPR, he managed to 
barely escape the proverbial green table. 
Youngster Cruise brought on the responsibility 
of division librarian and soon earned him the 
nickname "Dirty Joe." Despite a continuing 
misunderstanding with the Math Department 
his grades rose Youngster Year to that magi- 
cal number. 2/c Summer- was an enlightening 
experience and served to reinforce his desire to 
steer ships in 20 foot seas. Joe never had any 
doubts that anything over a 2.0 was a waste of 
sleep. He is determined to put in 20-30 years. 


Smiling Jack came to "the place" after 4 un- 
eventful years at high school. Being a Navy 
junior, he has traveled all over the world, but 
calls San Diego home. Always willing to lend a 
helping hand Plebe year. Jack was "every- 
body's buddy." Youngster Cruise brought him 
to his one time home, Hawaii. Although his 
grades were continually high, they didn t dis- 
play his study habits. A natural athlete, 
magic feet" decided to help out the company 
soccer team at fullback second year. This was 
natural, after a season of kicking balls on the 
Rugby Team during Plebe year. 2/c Summer 
Jack was impressed by the Greyhounds in 
Newport and decided they were meant for 
him. The Navy can look forward to welcoming 
one of the future greats of the naval profes- 
sion; just ask him.

Wendell Jay was born in Indiana and reared 
in Illinois, and by the second semester of 
Youngster Year he had another home, Fort 
Pierce, Florida. At Astoria Senior High School 
Squirrel was an all-around athlete. His skill 
and versatility in athletics at Navy could be 
witnessed on the intramural B-Ball and volley- 
ball courts and softball, football and fieldball 
fields. He was also a member of the mighty 
mites. The "Rodent" had a contagious affmity 
for the pad from the start of Plebe year. Acute 
"paditis," however, never denied him Sup's 
List and stars. He will be remembered as an 
excellent short order cook and fast on the draw 
with his instamatic, and no doubt when he re- 
ports aboard the DLG of his choice he'll be 
wearing a pair of the dyes and colorful 
skivvies under his uniform. 


Dean F. Click, better known to some of us as 
"Doc," is the son of a Class of 1944 West Point 
graduate. Since Dean is a member of a mili- 
tary family he has lived in many cities 
throughout the United States and parts of 
Canada and subsequently calls number one 
city home, but Newport, Rhode Island, is as 
good as any and is "home base" at present. 
Deano is majoring in Chemistry and plans on 
attending medical school after a two year stint 
as a boat driver. Here at the Academy Dean 
gets his kicks by sailing knockabouts and 
playing an occasional game of handball or lis- 
tening to music. 


Hat Gutekunst suffered his first major po- 
litical defeat in honor rep elections Plebe Year. 
Not one to be easily discouraged, he soon made 
a comeback by taking hats for the 5th Batt. 
Vollevball team, and, as a result, picked up his 
pseudonym. Even though he earned all-league 
and all-state honors in basketball and baseball 
during his high school career in the deep 
South, he chose the intramural pipeline rather 
than varsity. Rick enjoyed taking advantage 
of those oft-employed individual workout ses- 
sions in the intramural program. Gutes was 
equally gifted in the academic department as 
ne'er a semester slipped by without his name 
appearing on the Sup's List. When it came to 
the fairer sex. Rick was again in control of 
every situation. If they didn t want to play the 
game by his rules he picked up and left (he 
rarely had to). He was also fortunate enough 
to be the only one with a Chinese coolie for a 
four year roommate. Luckily for the Grey- 
hounds, Hat will be joining the Nuc Power 
fleet upon graduation.

Jim, reared in a fine Navy family, hailed 
from such distant points as Adak, Alaska; Sa- 
bana Seca, Puerto Rico; and most fondly Port 
Hueneme, California. Plebe year found this 
"man of constant sorrow" doing a lot of Cali- 
fornia dreaming when he became an all-star at 
center phone booth. Athletically, Jim, found 
fame on the company basketball and volleyball 
teams as well as study-hour tennis play. The 
Wires department and Jim fought a suicidal 
battle for several semesters while he laid a 
solid foundation for his EE major. Although 
academics did leave him some expectations, 
Jim's source of constant inspiration was that 
California girl with whom he has planned his 
future with this last four years. Hopefully 
CEC or a P-3 squadron will receive this fine 
young officer wnere his good nature, warm 
friendship and positive outlook on life will be a 
rewarding addition. 


Paul came to Navy to fly to Mars or at least 
fly jets. Through intramurals, 150 lb. football, 
switching majors, trips to D.C., turning down 
stripes, Hawkeye sports, and rowdy June 
Weeks, he has never lost sight of that goal. A 
member of the Campus Rogues Zero Defecto 
Six, The Relnick Kid could always be depended 
on to find adequate June Week housing such 
as the Countess Armfelt Arms, and to have the 
real story on Navy football. In the female de- 

Eartment Paul's taste was broad so to speak, 
ut the apple of his eye was always in Clarion, 
that young Thomas g^rl. Whether in Navy Air 
or cheese, success will come his way, as it al- 
ways did here. All I can say is never has a 
roomie done so much for another in so short a 


Following in the footsteps of an older broth- 
er, T. J. came to the Academy with the eagle, 
globe, and anchor in his eyes, prepared to de- 
fend mother and apple pie against tyranny and 
oppression. The only problem was that the 
2230 taps was a whole hour later than what his 
conservative California upbringing was accus- 
tomed to. Always struggling with a demand- 
ing academic schedule made even worse by 
P.E., Ned managed always to come out witn 
respectable grades in the field of Analytical 
Management. With the chicks the situation 
was always fluid, except when classmates 
moved in to rectify the situation, as with that 
Southern belle and the proverbial Galloping 
Ghost. With a change of heart toward the 
Corps, it appears as if Ned, will grab that Nav- 
igation kit and a three years supply of maneu- 
vering boards and get underway with the 


James Chester Grover, more frequently an- 
swering to "Groovie" stems from a fine Michi- 
gan family. Jim became a Literature major, 
with French as his language. His skill with 
Bull soon earned him the nickname "the poet." 
He originally planned a flying career but will 
now "drive for 5." Rumor has it that Groovie 
was "married" Youngster Year (putting a halt 
to his long list of loves) but all he'll admit to is 
being pinned to Mary Pat T., with a June 
Weeker planned for 72. Probably the most 
vivid memories will be of: 1) J. C.'s free 
clothes, and 2) his feats at company soccer, not 
necessarily in that order. 


Out of the West rode John "Rackman" Har- 
rold into the valley of form deuces, reveille, 
and regulations. His hometown is Miami, Okla- 
homa, and he is a staunch fan of the Oklahoma 
University "Sooners." John is majoring in 
Oceanography and minoring in "rack time for 
which he holds the intercollegiate record and 
hopes to take a gold medal in the '72 Olympics. 
In keeping with the true competitive spirit 
John plays company soccer and never inten- 
tionally misses a chance to "lunch" somebody. 
He also plays lightweight football and fast 
pitch Softball. John is not pinned and avoids 
such attachments with some fervor. As a mat- 
ter of fact, he has never been known to take 
the same girl out more than twice in a row. As 
for his future in the Navy, only God knows. 


After floating around for a year in Broward 
County Junior College and Deerfield Beach, 
Florida, Dave ran aground at USNA. It didn't 
take him long to find the Navy and the sea 
were his true calling, and so he majored in 
Ocean Engineering. Dave was never one to 
sweat the system, and he often proved it by his 
antics. He was never known to return from lib- 
erty, until the last minute or later; but, being 
"golden" he never read about it. Around the 
Academy one could always find Dave either 
with his woman, in the rack or on the tennis 
courts. He often thought of studying, but 
dreams of days ahead engrossed nim more 
than his academic ambitions. Dave plans to see 
more of the sea, as he intends to enter the nu- 
clear power program; in which he will, like the 
Academy, get along well.

Steve arrived at USNA from the sprawling 
metropolis of Deer Creek, Indiana, and soon 
distinguished himself as the strong silent type, 
a natural for life at Navy. When not busy eat- 
ing, Steve can be found down at the pool set- 
ting records for the swim team, his only recre- 
ation from hitting the books. The Aerospace 
Department occasionally threatened to wear 
out Steve's eraser supply, but he stayed ahead 
of the Academic Department and the long 
green table through perseverance alone. Al- 
though famous for being the quiet type, no- 
body ever accused, the world traveller of not 
knowing how to have a good time. Who else 
went completely around the world 2/c Sum- 
mer? Steve holds the respect and admiration of 
all who know him and can be assured of a suc- 
cessful and rewarding career. 


With probably more "state-spirit" than any 
other midshipman, it does not seem unusual 
that Arthur would hail from one of the New 
England states, Maine in particular. He de- 
clares that everyone should have heard of 
Gardiner, Maine, as it is one of only 21 cities in 
Maine. On weekends Arthur is seldom seen in 
Bancroft, as most of his time is taken up with 
a certain beautiful little filly from Severna 
Park whom he plans to make nis wife immedi- 
ately after graduation. Although Arthur was 
a tennis player of some accomplishment upon 
entering the Academy, the two months of 
Plebe Summer away from his sport managed 
to insure the rusting of his wrist action. Other 
sports included batt squash and company field- 
ball. His activities included scuba diving as a 
club member and instructor, as well as mem- 
bership in Sigma Pi Sigma, his major was 
Physics. Before the big change in Navy Air 
program. Art, as he is called, hoped to go di- 
rectly into the Navy flight program. However, 
with the shake up m policy, he thinks it possi- 
ble to end his obligation in the surface Navy. 


Bob crossed the river to USNA with white 
hat in one hand and basketball in the other 
after "sailing with the fleet for a year" at 
NAPS. Being the old E.T. that he was, aca- 
demics came easy for the "big bat" as seen in 
his many Sup's List weekends. Bob brought 
with him all the qualities of a natural leader, 
and Plebe Year he led us through some inter- 
esting places like the chain fence, the Reflec- 
tion Pool and the Armfelt Arms. Never one to 
pass up a good party, some of his versions of 
SDB Youngster Year amazed us all. Big Bat 
earned his starting spot on the varsity basket- 
ball squad Youngster Year; athletics always 
came easily for Bat especially gymnastics. If 
Big Bat survives the rigors of Navy's basket- 
ball program, it appears as if Bob will be head- 
ed for Nucs.

Walt came to USNA from the white sands 
and sunny skies of Clearwater, Florida, with 

f'eat hopes of playing football for the "Big 
lue." He secured athletically Youngster Year 
after comparing his physical size with those of 
Navy's opponents and sought exercise on the 
batt crew and company intramural teams. 2/c 
year after deciding his grades were too high, 
Walt shed that extra 20 pounds and earned a 
slot on Mity Mites. Toward the end of the sea- 
son Walt zigged with a full length cast. Al- 
ways known for his quick ability to make a 
joke of anything he was able to humble anyone 
with his uncanny wit. With a major in Ocean- 
ography and a minor in long hours, Walt may 
someday join the medical profession. Whatev- 
er his choice, it is sure that Walt will become a 
valuable asset to those he serves with. 


Rob Mason is one of those Mids that can 
claim almost any and every state as his home 
as he is a Navy junior. Smce coming to the 
Academy he has lived on both coasts and now 
calls home Columbus, Ohio. Almost any night 
of the week and sometimes even dunng the 
day "Mase" can be found in one of the corners 
of the Brigade Library. His grades show it too; 
as he has repeatedly been a member of the 
Dean's and Sup's Lists. Mase has played differ- 
ent company and batt intramural sports but he 
excels in the favorite sport of any mid — girls. 
Mase has yet to decide what his service selec- 
tion will be, but he leans towards subs or sur- 
face lines. 


Bob came to Navy a mere youth and an un- 
heralded lacrosse star (at least none of us had 
ever heard of him!). But with seven (count 
'em), big goals against BuUis Prep Plebe year 
his name was not soon to be forgotten. "Rell," 
as he was known to his classmates, climaxed a 
memorable Youngster year with a hat trick 
against Army and notched himself a place in 
lacrosse history. His tumultuous love affairs, 

?uick wit, and Polish nose kept things exciting 
or him and his friends. It can be said that his 
attitude, forcefulness, and determination will 
make him a success at something, someday. 
Upon graduation Rickover's Navy will gam 
another Academy AU-American. 


Fished in from Winter Park, Florida, "E. J." 
arrived at the Academy with the goal of grad- 
uating. He not only acnieved his goal but suc- 
ceeded in many endeavors along the way. 
After completing a scuba diving course as a 
youngster, "Caraiac Arrest," as he was affec- 
tionately named by his buds, spent 2/c Sum- 
mer leave in Fort Benning, working for his 
parachutist wings. Never one to save money, 
Eddy spent many weekends with women from 
every corner of the nation — even so, he al- 
ways had enough time for studying Oceanog- 
raphy and attamed the Sup's List and Dean s 
List many times before graduating. Always 
the outgoing "Gungy" individual, Ekldy will 
probably choose Marine Air as his service 


Birdman mi^ated south to USNA from 
Bird Island, Minnesota, and soon established 
himself as the cross country Plebe that ran the 
squad leaders at com-around. Since then Bird 
has put in two years with Navy basketball, and 
countless hours studying the contours of his 
pillow at close range. Never one to turn down 
a challenge. Bird often pinned two opponents 
a night in the company rowdy wrestling 
matches. Rob still managed to have several 
guest appearances on the Sup's List during his 
stay at Navy, after switching his major from 
Math to Ops Analysis. If his luck and money 
hold out. Bird will pass up bachelorhood for 
the charms of a hometown girl. Whatever his 
service selection, Bird is sure to be a success. 


Earl the Pearl migrated to Annapolis from 
Richland, New Jersey. Being a varsity wrestler 
at Vineland High School, he was dead set 
against starving to make weight anymore. 
Plebe year he gave it up and Brigade boxing 
made Earl a 135 lb. class champion and the 
first man in '72 to win a varsity letter. Intra- 
murals took his time in the upperclass years 
where he was a standout knockabout sailor. 
Brother Earl was also devoted Big Brother. 
2/c Year found Pearl singing for the JayGees 
and sounding like an angel sent from heaven. 
Having a knack for keeping a harem of girls 
always on the line, 2/c Year also found him 
being trapped by an Annapolis belle. It looks 
as though Pearl may be going Greyhound line 
upon graduation for more than the standard 
two years, but, no matter where he spends his 
career in the Navy, Earl the Pearl's talent for 
cooking toasted cheese sandwiches will stand 
him in good stead.

Richie, sometimes called Bomber, came to us 
from the Bronx and USNA will never he the 
same. The Bomber could be counted upon to 
have some sort of excitement or trouble fol- 
lowing him wherever his travels took him. Sec- 
ond Class Summer was his longest sustained 
effort in this endeavor. Academics never pre- 
sented a problem to Rich who claimed they 
were relaxing after a long day of evading the 
Executive Department. Many semesters found 
him on the Sup's List. Richie was a natural 
athlete, but concentrated his efforts on varsity 
indoor and outdoor track and where he earned 
his varsity letter. Richie was in charge of 72's 
1/c parking and rumor had it that the Com- 
mandant's parking place was in serious jeop- 
ardy. Anxious for a career of continued travel 
and experience, Richie looks forward to gradu- 
ation and life in the real world. 


Jim Broyles hails from San Diego, from 
where he pink panthered" his way to the 
Naval Academy. Being active in high school 
resulted in his being the same at Navy. Jim 
ran for some class office every year; most re- 
membered was Youngster year when he was to 
be "72's Messiah. His experience for political 
speaking came from his involvement as an 
actor in the Musical Club Shows. Slim also was 
Business Manager for BAG (almost got a trip 
to "Seattle"). Panther's" involvement with 
people and small activities will carry over after 
graduation, as well as his serious and under- 
standing approach to life. There should never 
be a dull wardroom either in easy times or 
when there is there is industry with Jim 


Dave, an Air Force Junior, having lived in 
several parts of the country, proclaims intense 
loyalty to Texas, Maryland and presently Mas- 
sachusetts where home is a small town called 
Sagamore Beach. Upon entering the Naval 
Academy, Dave put his 6'5" height to good use 
by finding himself a spot on the Plebe basket- 
ball team and on the Junior Varsity team dur- 
ing his Youngster year. During the Plebe sea- 
son it was unfortunate for Dave that his right 
ankle decided to take a couple of turns for the 
worse, and on two occasions Dave found him- 
self sporting crutches and a cast. The Academ- 
ic Board will not be graced with his presence if 
he can help it. With his avid interest in scuba 
diving and Oceanography, Dave will provide 
Navy Line with a fine, hard working officer, 
who will possess a keen knowledge of the 
ocean over which he'll someday ride and rule.

"Smilin' Guy," representing the Texas 
branch of the Ghetto, came to the Academy 
seeking fame, fortune, and women. After ov- 
ercoming a few monetary problems, "Rotor" 's 
easygoing Southern charm and quick wit won 
him the heart of more than one member of the 
fairer sex. His athletic pursuits included Navy 
sailing, company basketball, and an occasional 
wrestling matcn with some chick. Undaunted 
by academics, Guy continued to fight a losing 
battle with both the pad monster and tequila. 
However, when party time arrived, Guy 
proved to be a lively asset. There can be no 
doubt that Navy Line will take on a new look 
when "Smilin' Guy" adds his experience and 
good humor to the fleet. 


Todd Thornton Whitne . . . What? . . . 
"TTWB," that's better. Coming from Albany, 
New York, Todd entered the Academy after 4 
prosperous years at Trinity Pawling. 'TTWB is 
definitely a lover of the 18th century and is a 
liberal in thought and a conservative in action. 
"TTWE appreciates the slide rule but the Math 
and Science fields aren't really his bag. Major- 
ing in Humanities and the Classics are his 
main interests. Academics have never really 
been hard for TTWB . . . They seem to be 
more of an annoyance but he works at it. Dur- 
ing 2/c Year the intitials of TTWB sky-rocket- 
ed to Brigade fame because of "With the Be- 
atles" and many more Omar and TTWB pro- 
ductions. Todd's activities range from 
WRNV's head librarian, DJ King, head of 
WRNV sports department to WMID, WAD30, 
choir and Glee Club. Todd is a very determined 
individual and he knows what he wants in life. 
Upon graduation with these qualities as well 
as his unlimited supply of every TTWB will 
turn to the sea. And it's probable that in the 
future we'll still be hearing the golden tones of 


After spending most of his life in Louisville, 
Kentucky, John a true "blue grass" kid, found 
his way to the Academy right after graduation 
from high school. Since he's come to Mother 
B's boarding house, John has found his Acade- 
my affords nim a chance to participate in just 
about any sport he felt in the mood to play. He 
found no trouble in making the startmg 5 of 
the Plebe baisketball team, and he earned his 
letter on the varsity basketball squad as a 
Youngster. His other sports include golf, base- 
ball, and tennis, with basketball being his first 
love. As one who can always be counted on to 
get the job done with the least amount of fuss 
and worry, John has always been looked upon 
by his classmates as dependable and always 
willing to lend a helping nand. His desire to do 
his best in all the tasks he encounters will 
prove to be a valuable asset, both for him and 
the men he will command as a naval officer. 


"Fat Jack" left high school in Mt. Lebanon, 
Penn., seeking adventure, good times and the 
bennies associated with them, and he ended up 
here at USNA. But this did not dampen his 
spirits nor change his attitude. His carefree 
yet reserved outlook allowed him to roll with 
the punches and continue doing those things 
whicn he liked to do. He never sweated the ac- 
ademics. If you wanted to see him during 
study hour, you would have to check his rack 
or the nearest bull session as he was a great 
listener and an ever greater contributor. Also 
a standout on the athletic field, "J. J." earned 
his N-star in 150 lb. football and was a great 
help to the company basketball and softball 
teams. Always up for a party, Jack usually let 
nothing hold him back, not even the fact that 
"Bud" was being served rather than his favor- 
ite, "Iron City. Come selection night. Navy 
Air should receive a great officer, a great 
flyer, and undoubtedly a natural for the type 
of life found at Pensacola. 

STEPHEN McAllister jarrett 

Steve came from the foothills of the Appa- 
lachians in North Georgia, so you can under- 
stand why, when people ask him who won the 
Civil War, he answers, "Who said it was over 
with?" He hasn't done too badly up North 
though, having made the Dean's List once and 
the Sup's List almost every semester. You 
couldn't really say he has a girl, maybe "had 3 
times, but that's the way it goes." He hasn't 
quite decided which branch of the Navy he's 
going into yet, because he hasn't had much 
time to think about such unimportant matters, 
being a double 'E' major. The highest goal in 
mind right now is graduation. Then comes the 
question, MGB or 240Z?

Johnnie reported on 26 June 68 and soon 
found himself leaning toward the Marine 
Corps. Youngster Cruise made up his mind 
after having experienced some "mild" seas in 
the Atlantic. Youngster year Johnnie was the 
recipient of numerous >f's, all black, and be- 
came a permanent fixture on 3-1 or so it 
seemed. When 2/c Year rolled around, J.J. 
found himself attached to a certain lass in Chi- 
cago and started settling down. Upon gradua- 
tion Johnnie plans to enter the Marine Corps 
and hopes to work himself into a reconnais- 
sance battalion. 


Bill comes to USNA from the sunny swamp- 
lands of Tampa, Florida. Plebe year proved to 
be no problem to Bill, and he went on the fol- 
lowing year to make Dean's and Sup's Lists. 
Youngster Cruise gave Knapper a taste of Eu- 
rope. He returned each following summer for 
more fun and travels in Germany and Greece. 
Through his Russian major Bill further devel- 
oped an interest in languages and foreign af- 
fairs. Probable service selection for Knapper is 
Marine Corps. 


From his earliest days at the Academy, 
Scott was known for asking "Why?," and this, 
in the eyes of many labeleahim as an attitude 
problem. Consequently, he channelled his ener- 
gy into the sailing problem, where apparently 
he found himself, and a raison d'etre. He rap- 
idly became one of the best "Big-Boat" sailors 
at the Academy. Of all, winter. Spring or Sum- 
mer found him sailing. Always wet, often cold, 
he became known for his dedication to the pro- 
gram. He commanded his own yawl 2/c Year 
Fall, and he did quite well. Academics were 
never his strong point. But he managed to get 
through with decent grades. Scott hopes to go 
into small boats for his service selection, but, 
wherever he winds up, the Navy will certainly 
get an officer dedicated to the sea, with a good 
sense of seamanship, and a desire to be the 
best mariner afloat.

Alfred "Camel" Joseph, from Rochester, 
New York, came to the Academy to find suc- 
cess, but instead found a baited hook waiting 
at the end of a line from Philly. "Joe" bit and 
will be married soon after graduation. Any- 
time you needed him, the "Wires Wizard" 
could oe found slashing at his EE major, or 
eating the "A-1" chow packages from home. 
Never selfish, Joe always shared the wealth 
and was always available for extra instruction 
or a good round of verbal warfare. Even 
though constantly struggling to keep up with 
academics, physical education, and tne execu- 
tive dept., Joe has always managed to stay 
close to his one and only and keep up the spir- 
its of the other members of the company. With 
his determination, Alfred will certainly make 
it into the air wing of the fleet, and be a great 
asset to the Navy. 


Lloyd comes from a small town outside of 
Baltimore, which they call Pumphrey. This 
seems to be the only small thing he has ever 
done. Butch, as he is known far and wide, had 
to practically beat off wrestling coaches bear- 
ing scholarships, until Coach Peery of Navy 
stepped in. Meeting mild mannered Butch off 
the mat, one would never guess his true athlet- 
ic prowess. Rumor has it. Butch will be wres- 
tling for the U.S. in the '72 Olympics. Never 
one to take the easy path. Butch picked Me- 
chanical Engineering for his major. So as this 
friend to all leaves Mother "B" for the last 
time, the men in green will be gaining a big, 
big man. 


"Skullman" came to us from Satellite Beach, 
Florida, and soon found that USNA was a 
good place to say you were from, but not at. 
His carefree "cool cat" attitude made Skull- 
man a quick hit with his classmates. He would 
not let anything stand in his way of having a 
good time. A Systems major, Fred would com- 
plain a lot about grades but managed to main- 
tain a 2.7 index. Skullman's first love is his 
Porsche and this love for cars led him to be- 
come Chairman of the Class Car Committee. 
He is not yet ready to let any girl get her 
hands into him and wants to remain a happy 
bachelor for a few years after graduation. 
Fred is looking forward to his entrance into 
life in the real world in June of '72! He plans to 
go Navy Air and looks forward to the relaxed 
fife of P-3 Navy. 


Coming to Navv via Kennewick, Washing- 
ton and NAPS, Mac soon adjusted to life on 
the Severn. He encountered the Executive De- 
partment early in his career, having received 
nis Black "N" his Youngster year; and he fol- 
lowed with a few other skirmishes in his final ' 
two years. One could always find Mac doing 
one of three things: drinking a cup of coffee, 
smoking a cigarette, or sleeping. It was often 
said that he spent more time in the pad than in 
class, and even he could not dispute it. Some- 
how, he found time to keep his grades up, and 
even an occasional weekend worked its way in. 
Known in the Academy's boxing circle as "The 
Mauler," Mac was also an outstanding Big 
Brother for 3 years. After the obligatory tour 
in the fleet, Mac relishes great dreams for sit- 
ting behind the "stick" in the cockpit of an F-4. 


Dennis hails from Souderton, Pa., where he 
Was a three sport hero (football, wrestling and 
baseball), and a leader in the classroom also. 
He came with ambitions of playing for the Big 
Blue but his size convinced him that playing 
first string defensive tackle for the tough Lit- 
tle Blue" team, was safer. He also managed to 
participate in company fieldball, and softball. 
He was always known for his humor. Jokes? 
He had a million of 'em! Keeping everybody 
loose and laughing were his trademarks, but 
he was serious enough to tackle one of the har- 
der departments here and major in Mathemat- 
ics. Leaning toward flight school after his sur- 
face commitment Denny's humor should keep 
him in good stead in the fleet. 


Howard Hovey Myers the III, popularly 
known as "Kip, hails from the sunny blue 
skies of Seattle, Washington. His easygoing 
attitude helped him pass through Plebe year 
virtually unnoticed. For him, adjusting to the 
humid Maryland weather and "female free" 
atmosphere of Plebe year was much more up- 
setting. He came into nis own though as he left 
the fourth estate his only setbacks occurring at 
Army. A Math major. Kip has found the aca- 
demics relatively easy and spent a lot of time 
ocean racing for USNA. Headed for the bright 
skies of naval aviation. Kip has a slight detour 
ahead for him, but the Navy will welcome an 
easygoing g^y and a good officer. 

Seven Hundred Sixty-Seven 


Gordie, the son of a retired Navy Command- 
er, hails from Pensacola, Florida. Coming to 
the Academy straight out of high school, Gord 
quickly became a success with a racket, 
playing both tennis and squash at the Acade- 
my. Although his grades at times needed work, 
Gord still remained a member in good standing 
of the company "evening bridge" circuit. 
Never one to pass up an opportunity on a good 
time, Gord was always ready to take advan- 
tage of weekends and leave whenever squash 
and tennis trips weren't scheduled. Having ac- 
quired many frierids during his stay, Gord's 
sense of sportsmanship and fair play will be re- 
membered by his classmates as one of his best 
attributes. With a true sense of loyalty, re- 
sponsibility, and honor, Gordie will always be a 
credit to himself and whatever branch of the 
service he chooses. 


Dave came to the Naval Academy with a 
happy carefree non-sweat attitude and he 
leaves us in the same manner. Being from Ar- 
lington, Va., "Strubes" never hestitated to 
take it home for a little weekend relaxation. 
Dave's ability to find fun, liberty limits not- 
withstanding, always surrounded him with fol- 
lowers. Dave kept well above water in academ- 
ics even though he pursued a major in Applied 
Science. Although an injury, kept Dave from 
participating in varsity wrestling, he was a 
varsity hackball player in company fieldlaall 
and soccer. Spwrts cars, sports, and girls, 
though not necessarily in that order, were the 
trademarks of Struber's leave and life. A 
shaky, at best, bachelor, Dave looks forward to 
the dfay when he can ride out of USNA in his 
bright yellow Opel GT and into the real world. 
There is no doubt that whichever part of the 
Navy gets Dave, will get a great guy and a 
fine leader. 


Smitty, or "Mr. Smith," as he was known to 
his friends, came to the Academy from the 
bustling metropolis of Sligo, Penn. (right be- 
tween Turkey City and Turniphole). By a pre- 
vious process not entirely understoiod by even 
his closest friends, Smitty arrived via Vander- 
bilt University as the grand old man of the 
30th Company. His grizzled features can only 
lend credence to the rumor that he once was a 
member of the Dillinger Gang. Smitty sailed 
through Plebe year without much trouble but 
the Executive Department was able to score in 
the first quarter of Youngster Year with a 75 
point T.D. Visibly shaken but not discouraged 
ne managed to lead two lives — one as a mid- 
shipman and one as a degenerate in cahoots 
with two shady characters code named "Ted" 
and "Winslow." We, and the Executive De- 
partment can only guess at what his activities 
were when he assumed his alter ego.

John Rood, hailing from the sunny lands of 
Jupiter, Florida, turned down several scholar- 
ship offers in coming to the Academy. Homer 
thnves on competition, which has led to his 
being a fiery competitor on the athletic fields, 
and to have secured a permanent spot on the 
Sup's and Dean's Lists. He majors in Math and 
hopes to attend post-graduate school later in 
life. An especially interesting sidelight on 
Homer is his uncanny success with the ladies in 
his later years at the Academy. He has cap- 
tured many a girl's heart with that southern 
smile and pleasant personality. In Homer the 
Navy will gain a truly outstanding person as 
he fulfills his lifetime dream of being a flyboy. 


Randy came to Navy from Janesville, Wis- 
consin by way of NAPS. Somewhat the elderly 
type, Schultzie became known alternately as 
the "old man" and "the kraut." He was quickly 
tagged as a leader and as one always willing to 
lend a helping hand. Making friends comes 
easily to Randy. Randy had many diversified 
interests at Navy; from soccer (junior varsity) 
and scuba diving to bikes. He earned his Black 
"N" early due to a miscalculation in the moun- 
tains of Pennsylvania as he was returning 
from Christmas leave Youngster year. That 20 
hour ride on his Honda was an experience the 
"old man" will never forget. Academics never 
posed much of a problem for Randy. Many 
nights he spent study hour just shooting the 
bull or explaining someone else's homework. 
Randy presently plans on investing his many 
talents in the Marine Corps upon graduation. 


Dan took a short drive from Silver Spring, 
Maryland, where he excelled in high school in 
athletics and academics, to join us here at the 
Ocean Academy. Not one to let Plebe year 
slow him up, he made the Dean's and Sup's 
Lists and lettered in three sports. When 
Youngster year rolled around he found himself 
a starting cornerback on the Big Blue until No. 
1 Texas changed his plans with a knee injury 
and a long stay in the hospital. He switched to 
baseball the next year and earned himself a 
starting job as Navy's centerf ielder. Never one 
to let his night life suffer he managed to keep 
in touch with the girls w"hile majoring in Eco- 
nomics and cursing steam. With an eye for the 
Supply Corps, the Navy is sure to welcome a 
capable officer in June. 


Herb entered the Academy as a Navy junior. 
Having spent much of life on the move, his 
most memorable years were those of high 
school where he formed a couple of seemingly 
everlasting friendships while at Granby High 
School in Norfolk, Va. "Stocks" has always ex- 
hibited a fierce sense of competition, whether 
it be in the classroom or on the squash courts. 
During his stay at USNA, he consistently 
made Sup's List and earned his "N" in squash. 
When the weekends finally came, he was al- 
ways a major participant in any activities 
which the "Ghetto" sponsored. Leave periods 
found Stocks rolling up and down the eastern 
coast in his blue machine, putting in wherever 
the action was good. Herb has been an out- 
standing personality at the Academy and will 
prove to be a valuable asset to the aviation 
Dranch of the Navy when he gets his wings. 


At present, home for Hank is Goodman, 
Wisconsin, a little village in the woods north of 
Green Bay. Although he originally came here 
from Newberry High School in Newberry, 
Michigan. Hank decided Plebe Summer that 
greyhounds were his bag and the only way is 
underway. In line with this he spent most of 
his afternoons out driving YP's with the 
squadron. Hank also played company heavy- 
weight football in winters. He discovered early 
that school wasn't his favorite occupation, es- 
pecially the magic courses taught in Michelson 
and Chauvenet Halls. Math and Wires were his 
downfall having spent four semesters on Calc 
I and II. This influenced his decision to become 
a History major. H. J. picked up a black "N" 
June Week Youngster year, after which he re- 
solved to no longer buck the system, openly 
anyway. Engaged in a running battle of the 
bulge. Hank, for that reason, is known as Fat 
Harry or Watermelon.

"Behr" rolled into USNA from the hot sands 
of Scottsdale, Arizona. Behr is one of the few 
people coming to the Academy who had no 
idea what the Academy or a mid was. The 
shock of a Plebe year left him bewildered and 
disorganized. Thanks to a couple of fellow Ari- 
zonians, Behr had a Plebe year that was unsur- 
passed. Behr's consistently jovial mood and 
good-time attitude would fool most people, but 
to those who know him, he is a tough competi- 
tor with an uncanny ability to pull things out 
in the clutch. With academics last on the list, 
Behr is a man of varied interests, always will- 
ing to try anything new. With his approach to 
life, Navy Air can only benefit. 


Coming to the Academy from the Windy 
City, Jim quickly adjusted to the ways and 
maze of Navy life. Keeping his smile even 
through Plebe year, he set his sights on the ac- 
ademic department. Getting off to a slow 
start, Jim did however manage to avoid the 
Form 2, a dubious honor for any Plebe. Picking 
up speed as the semesters passed Jim earned 
his stars and found extra weekends to be quite 
useful. Second Class year found him with a 
girl, car, and never around on weekends. Life 
was quite different the last two years than 
the first. Jim is looking forward to serving in 
the destroyer Navy upon graduation. 


Gawd's country, Chattanooga, Tennessee 
style, lost one of ner favorite sons on 26 June 
1968, as Jenx reported to USNA full of ideas 
and ideals. As time wore on, Jerry was contin- 
ually available with a quick comment or a 
sharp retort. A very meticulous person, Jerry 
chose Math as a very fitting major, struggling 
each semester with the academic department 
for those ever important grade points and the 
long weekends. Perhaps he should have used 
his talent with the rifle to aid him in his strug- 
gle, having spent long afternoons oerfecting 
the style which earned him two N's, with, 
hopefully an N* next. Not bad for shooting 
holes in the wall. A victim, as were all his 
classmates, of various military cutbacks, Jerry 
took heart in the verse: 

"Ours is not to wonder why 

Ours is but to FLOAT, 

not FLY."

Ben is probably one of the few remaining 
NAPsters to graduate with '72. Hailing from 
Lubbock, Texas, Heart of the Southwest Con- 
ference, Ben knew what real football was. 
Hardly a morning went by that he didn't bury 
himself in the sports page. If the weekend 
didn't find him in front of the "tube" he was 
probably out shopping for clothes or a new 
girl. Ben found what it took to make it 
through his first five years in the Navy in the 
many parties and great leaves he enjoyed. But 
after girls, parties, MCB's and a Httle studying 
now and then, it looks like Ben will try his 
hand at flying — Pensacola gets a man who 
knows how, to make it and have the most fun 
doing it! 


Neal left the wilds of Benson, Arizona, be- 
hind to make his mark on the world at Canoe 
U. After a not too trying Plebe year, Neal fi- 
nally made it to Youngster year and cruise, 
where he became known more for his exploits 
ashore than his seamanship ability. After 
sleeping and dreaming his way through 
Youngster year, 2/c Summer was upon him, 
and Neal discovered that Greyhounds were the 
only way to fly. Neal found time to excel at 
sports and academics; 1/c Summer Neal re- 
turned to the sea (for a second chance?)! It was 
then that Neal decided surface line was for 
him. Though 1/c Year was busy with its 13 
hours and all, he still found time to enjoy his 
final year of preparation for a fine naval 


"Holds," the slash of 31, came to the Acade- 
my from the scenic town of Wheaton, Mary- 
land. Discovering that his football talents 
weren't needed, Tim turned to gymnastics to 
develop the physique he needed to wear his 
"head' clothes. At night Tim could be found 
studying the intricate theories understood only 
by Electrical Engineers, but somehow he al- 
ways managed to make the Sup's List for that 
extra weekend. When he wasn't studying or 
working out, Tim could be found playing in his 
band, working on the Hop Committee, or as 
2/c Year rolled around, spending a lot of time 
with his favorite girl, Marcia. After gradua- 
tion, it's a toss-up between subs, line and air, 
but whatever it is, Tim's desire and ambition 
will be sure to carry him through. 


Hailing from "the city," John came to the 
shores of the Severn as the littlest person in 
the company. Soon, setting out to prove him- 
self smallest in size only, he excelled in battal- 
ion sports and his Management major. Adapt- 
ing rapidly to being called Midshipman John- 
ston he drifted through Plebe year with only a 
small problem in shining Hoffie's shoes. 
Youngster and 2/c cruises reaffirmed John's 
desire to avoid the dark holes of engine rooms. 
The academic years provided pad time and a 
testing ^ound for tne leadership techniques 
which will serve him so well as a Marine. First 
class year was just a shift into neutral as John 
began dreaming about the hallowed grounds 
around O'Bannon Hall, It's certain that the 
Corps will find as much pleasure in having 
John in green as he will find being in them.

Lennv, a Navy Junior, was born and reared 
in Nortnern New Jersey. Before coming to the 
"uncoUege," he spent a year in REAL college 
in Southern California. We're not sure what He 
learned out there, because after a year of En- 

fineering he validated English and German, 
uffice it to say he learned about life more 
than Calculus. Plebe year was marked by a 
particular nemesis by the name of "Uncle 
Ralphie" and voluntary E.D. After being out 
for crew all Plebe vear, Kap went out for En- 
gineering with a double major in Mechanical 
and Aerospace. Lenny always listened to not 
necessarily a different drummer, but his own 
drummer. Notable Quotes: "Everything is rela- 
tive." "Intellectually speaking, there an no 
absolutes." AND "If you can t joke about it, 
you're not seeing it in proper perspective." 


Never regretting choosing the Naval Acade- 
my over West Point, Tom found life at Navy a 
unique experience. Being the only Italian 
major in the Class of '72, he became quite pop- 
ular with those certain few who were not gift- 
ed in some of the finer aspects of the language. 
Always eager to tackle a new day, Tom would 
greet reveule with a smile. Tom came directly 
to the beautiful shores of the Severn from 
Pittsburg, Kansas, after high school ("yes, 
there is a Pittsburg, Kansas.") If you didn't 
know about "the pits" and "pepsi cola," Tom 
made sure that you would be tnoroughly indoc- 
trinated in the ways of life in Kansas. "GT" or 
"Pearman" longs to ride the great waves as 
another one of the many Greyhounds in the 
fleet, and will be a fine addition to Navy Line 


Terry, or Pat, as he is known by a number of 
his classmates, wandered into the Academy 
one June day, after leaving his beloved Pacific 
Northwest. Although always interested in im- 
proving his grades, his true love was skiing on 
nis favorite slopes at home. He turned out for 
Plebe tennis, only to quit because of grades, 
missing his only chance at greatness in the 
sports world. Undaunted by his missed chance, 
Terry concentrated on his academics, working 
for a Physics major. Though never a true "in- 
tellectual," he was an above average student. 
Also interested in his social education, he was 
never one to turn down an argument or bull 
session. Waiting for his chance to see the 
world, Terry looks forward to his first big 


"Koibs," hailing from New Yorit City, came 
to the Academy with one ambition — to fly. 
He already had a fairly good idea of what to 
expect in the way of Academy life since his 
brother graduated with the Class of '69. His 
somewhat unspectacular performance in aca- 
demics made famous the "Kirby series — 1.999 
. . ." Jack waged a never ending battle with 
the Executive Department when it came to the 
question of certam standards of personal ap- 
pearance. "All I want is my hair, why won't 
they let me have my hair." Jack will no doubt 
become a naval officer whose presence will in- 
spire his men to give all they ve got for him, 
simply because he will be willing to give all 
he's got for them. 


Mutts, as he is affectionately known by his 
classmates, came to USNA from Portsmouth, 
R. I. Being from a Navy family and environ- 
ment, Dan was soon in stride with life at the 
Naval Academy. He is one of the few who re- 
tain the distinction of never having been fried, 
not yet at least. After trying his hand at foot- 
ball Plebe year, Dan devoted his athletic ef- 
forts to fieldball in the winter and battalion la- 
crosse in the Spring, while maintaining that 
never ending struggle with the academic de- 
partment for respectable grades. Due to a re- 
curring knee injury and a subsequent opera- 
tion in the fall of 2/c year, Dan was forced to 
take up the rack in lieu of sports for a time; 
he also achieved distinction for being the ex- 
cused squad commander for the longest time 
running. Dan looks forward to a career in the 
silent service after graduation. He would be a 
welcome addition to anyone's wardroom. 


"Pitts" came directly to the Naval Academy 
from Warren G. Harding High School in War- 
ren, Ohio. While in high school he lettered in 
football and baseball, but once in the Academy 
"Pitts" decided to devote most of his attention 
toward his studies. He did, however, unleash 
himself from the books long enough to devote 
his valuable talents as goalie, on the company 
fieldball team. He made many friends because 
of his easygoing attitude, and his extremely 
dry sense of humor. He has the ability to make 
the best of any situation. Because of his ability 
to find good times and his affinity for good 
friends, "Pitts" will have no trouble coping 
with any problem when he gets "underway.'

A. J. reluctantly left the thriving metropolis 
of Wyoming, Pa., to begin his naval career at 
NAPS. After a season of t-tables with the 
Plebe football team, he turned to less strenu- 
ous afternoon activities, including company 
volleyball, softball, and his home away from 
home, the pad. While not exactly shining in ac- 
ademics, Adam managed to get by with a little 
^avv and still have time for the finer things 
m life, good coffee and a reserved seat in the 
wardroom. Despite his rugged Management 
major A. J. always had his fair share of free 
time, along with something that had to be 
done. A. J.'s easy manner, quick wit, and genu- 
ine understanding of others mark him as a 
man to succeed in whatever he does. 


The "Rapper" blew in from who knows 
where! He lived many a place but considered 
himself a "hook 'em horns" at heart. Entering 
USNA innocent and pure, Dave quickly discov- 
ered the better things in life (like wine, women 
and bachelorhood). If there was ever a way to 
get around something, one can be sure that he 
and his partner in crime. Reps, found it. Never 
a real supporter for the "skin head look," Dave 
liked his hair . . . long . . . and always man- 
aged to keep it that way. Not exactly the slash 
01 tl'e company, he succeeded in remaining one 
step ahead of the Academic Board. Graduation 
will find the "Rapper" with eyes toward — the 
Air Force? Anyway, we're sure Dave will go 
far in life, as long as he can depend upon his 
wit and not his luck!

Biff left the charm of New Orleans only to 
find himself caught up in the inescapable rou- 
tine and accountability of life at Navy. He is 
now endeavoring to become a Mechanical En- 
gineer although he can't really state why. The 
monotone andmonotony of Navy can rarely be 
displaced, however, Bifi finds relief when he is 
involved in sports — lacrosse has been his lat- 
est passion; m addition, he plavs squash and 
fieloball. Since Navv has estaolished a new 
routine for 72 and because Biff is so accus- 
tomed to following the dogma of this joint, it 
looks like line for the kid. But as he always 
says "I love it!" 


Reps came to the Naval Academy from the 
Rutland, Vermont, ski slopes. Known to many 
of his friends as razor man, Reps was never 
known for his bulk. Never one to deny his 
famed stud factor, Tom was known for his 
"love em . . . leave em" philosophy. Being a 
Math wizard came easy to nim, but he did have 
some difficulty explaining what "schmol 
schmol" meant to his Bull profs. Between frat 
parties at the University of Maryland and 
making it to the track on "The Rapper" 's 
cycle, there wasn't much time left for boat 
courses, but he managed nevertheless, to out- 
wit the academic department. As the inventor 
of the "MK 8121 retractable, reg, non-reg, dual 
purpose sideburns," Reps earned great fame. 
Witn his sights set on a DD and his heart set 
on the Austrian ski slopes, Tom is sure to suc- 
ceed in his maritime endeavors. 


Mark "RJV" Schramm left the booming me- 
tropolis of Natalie (?), Pennsylvania, to join 
the Brigade. He carried his excellent academic 
record from high school and never lost it while 
he was at the Academy. Mark, not being both- 
ered by academics, participated avidly in the 
intramural program; and became an accom- 
plished squash player as evidenced by his rec- 
ord number of broken rackets. His fnendly at- 
titude and willingless to help anyone in need 
were well known to his classmates. Mark in- 
tends to continue the hard work developed at 
the Academy in a career of naval aviation. 
Navy Air will surely benefit from his talents. 


"Sohlman" came to Navy from Miami, a 
5'6", 110 lb. lover of the sun. Still a lover, he 
grew 7" and 65 lbs. in little over a year. Being 
a "slash," he was not one to let Plebe Bull get 
him down. He has been named to Sup's List de- 
spite many study hour disturbances. Being a 3 
year letterman of the company intramural 
football team, his desire to win could be seen 
almost every afternoon. That girl back home, 
MGB's, and good food rank as his favorites, 
not necessarily in that order. The Navy is gain- 
ing a bright mind, and a hard worker with a 
serious purpose. 


"Pop" accidentally slid into NAPS and 
USNA when he weakened during a hot sum- 
mer's day of Boot Camp and signed his life 
away. Looking at the whole process as a 
Grimm fairy tale, he didn't snap out of it until 
the first day of Plebe summer was upon him. 
Hailing from Cornell, Wise, and Tacoma, 
Wash., Pop's first two years at Canoe U. were 
many horned, until Sherry arrived on the 
Crabtown scene. After making the Sup's List 
once, the Spring Slide and Youngster Slump 
took over and benched all Nuke aspirations. 
Pop was never benched on the athletic scene, 
however, being on far more than his share of 
Brigade champion teams, including at least 
one each of squash, handball, and gymnastics. 
Remembered well for being the 6th Batt. Cdr. 
Plebe summer, and having always enjoyed his 
several ECA's, Pop will take pleasure in tack- 
ling the Greyhounds.

Elliot, otherwise known as Eddie Haiper- 
manand Alderbear hails from a small town on 
Long Island. He came to the Naval Academy 
with high expectations and great plans, but 
soon caught on to the system and realized that 
you can't break even with Navy. He enjoyed 
living here at USNA so much that he decided 
to stay an extra vear to "extend his profession- 
al development. ' At Navy he learned many 
things, but he failed to catch on to the knack 
of going over the wall; having been caught 
and Class A'd 3 times. He is famous for eatmg 
12 cannonballs, being a high greaser and for 
his participation in company athletics. His one 
bright spot in 5 years was the meeting up with 
a ray of sunshine named Liza. Life was defi- 
nitely brighter after this stroke of luck. Upon 
graduation Elliot is looking forward to mar- 
ried life and the Supply Corps. 


In from the big city of Barnesville, Georgia, 
came the proud Southern boy, Zellner. His 
easygoing attitude and that ever present smile 
on his face enabled him to make all times good 
times, as he sailed through Academy life. Soon 
after his arrival, the men around the big green 
table persuaded him to take advantage of the 
extended program or 5 year plan. He holds the 
record of seeing "the board" every semester he 
was here and being a civilian for 24 hours dur- 
ing his tenure. Studying just never happened. 
Lettering in varsity football, figuring out new 
ways to get in debt, sleeping, and shall we say, 
acknowledging the fairer sex formed his rou- 
tine. UDT-SEAL work is the only thing that 
really appeals to him in the Navy. "Z" — he 



Dan, better known as "Flip" came to us 
from sunny Southern California. He brought 
with him a warm personality, and a well 
known singing disability. Dan easily adjusted 
to the rigors of Plebe Summer even though he 
was frequently forced to prove that he could 
do 140 push-ups. Although he was a four year 
member of the company study club, and 
claimed to be a great lover he had no problem 
keeping above a 3.00 in his Math major. Dan 
was always deeply involved in athletics, rang- 
ing from varsity pistol, 150 pound football, and 
company sports, to being a varsity member of 
the extra auty squad. Dan's energy and ability 
to overcome any odds will be a great asset to 
him wherever ne goes. The Navy is sure to 
gain a fine naval officer no matter what he de- 
cides to do after graduation.

An Illinois country boy, John came to the 
Academy from Purdue University. Choosing 
Aerospace Engineering as his major, Beas 
commenced a four year ride on the academic 
roller coaster. For his late night studying and 
unconventional sleeping habits, he was given 
the title "Midnight Man." An outdoorsman, 
John often preferred to swap his slide rule for 
a lacrosse stick or fishing pole. Other interests 
were distance running, basketball, and swim- 
ming, as well as anchoring himself in front of 
the tube for the big game. He was known as 
the quiet man of the "study group," but was 
always there to rally with the boys when the 
situation demanded. Never one to give a fe- 
male an even break, Beas still contends to be a 
pushover when the right girl comes along. We 
don't think he'll last long. John believes that 
Navy Air is the only way to go and looks for- 
ward to a career in the clouds and beyond. 


Tim arrived at Canoe U. three weeks after 
graduating from his high school in Edina, Min- 
nesota, with little knowledge about his home 
for the next 4 years except that it would be 
rough. With the help of the "benevolent" up- 
perclass, during his Plebe year he learned that 
there was much more to the Navy and Marine 
Corps than the Phantom, Sky Hawk and Cru- 
sader jets that were on all the recruiting pic- 
tures at post offices. He enjoys all sports, but 
especially swimming. All his swimming ability 
enabled him to succeed in making it through 
without a single swimming lesson. Occasional- 
ly studying m between letter writing and 
sleeping, Tim was always able to study at the 
right time for tests and keep well above the 2.0 
mark. He lived on the perfumed letters he re- 
ceived from his extra special girl. He expects 
to make their relationship more permanent in 
the near future. Tim wants to fly Navy jets, 
and the Navy will find him a definite asset 
with his good sense of humor and optimistic 


R. J. Byham (better known as Iron Man the 
Trucker) came from Mount Holly, New Jersey 
and was recruited for academics. Richard 
knows Route 301 quite well for the reward at 
the end was a beautiful young lady named 
Pam! Though nicknamed IKON MAN he was 
still no match for the PAD MONSTER. Dick's 
favorite pastime was reading and writing let- 
ters. Rich's love for sports was demonstrated 
on the field and in the hall during study hour. 
His favorite sports being fieldball and in the 
hall football. His love for the sea will probably 
keep him on a ship for many a year. R. J.'s wit 
and good nature should serve him well in 
whatever he pursues. 



Gilly came to USNA straight from the wilds 
of New York City and the bars of the Bronx, in 
particular. He never ceased to amaze those 
who knew him with his first person accounts of 
street fights, gang wars, and curb jobs. Al- 
though recruited for academics, Gilly prepared 
for battle with the AcBoard each semester and 
usually managed to edge them while escaping 
with only minor injuries. His career here at 
Navy abounded with Navy good deals. One of 
these enabled Tom to be invited to participate 
in a second Youngster cruise, which gave him 
more sea time than most officers at the Acade- 
my. Those who knew hijn were surprised to 
find that Gilly was an exemplary midshipman 
when in the presence of civilian observers. 
Upon graduation, the varsity sub squads will 
lose a 4 year letterman, but the Navy will gain 
one dedicated officer. 


"Hops" calls home many places, from Gads- 
den, Tennessee, to Hamburg, Germany, but he 
has probably logged in more hours at the East 
End Club in Olongopo City, Philippines, than 
any other town. His most natural habitat is the 
rack, but "Hops" would like to become ac- 
quainted with the front seat of an F-4 Phan- 
tom. He was one of the original founders of 
the famous 32nd Company Study Club, but dis- 
appointed his classmates by becoming Superin- 
tendent's List material on numerous occasions. 
He has been a favorite of his classmates all 
along, but no one need worry about losing 
Hops to some fair Southern belle because he 
can "hog with the best of 'em." As for sports, 
Jim was a steady soccer lightweight football, 
and Softball man, but his favorite was "bend- 
ing elbows." Famous quote: "I've never said no 
to a beer!"

Agreeing to go to Navy only because it is 
Souui of the Mason Dixon line, Bob or Mooner 
is a loyal Son of the South, hailing from Little 
Rock, Ark. Coming to Navy a quiet and con- 
servative lad, he was able to overcome this 
handicap so well that by 2/c Year he would 
regularly be seen sneaking his beloved coke 
machine red Jag out of hiding and speeding 
away from the books and Mother "B," to enjoy 
a more lively life in D.C. During the week. Bob 
could usually be seen strolling down the hall, 
hands in pockets, and whistHng out of key. 
Never one to let the academic part of life 
cramp his style. Bob is a veteran of every Mu- 
sical Club Show and many other ECA's. A ded- 
icated lifer. Bob will be seen in future years in 
pursuit of his main goal, his own tin can. Not 
only will Bob make a fine Naval officer, but 
will have a hell of a good time doing it. 


Dallas was already an "old Salt" before he 
first walked through Gate One in June of 1968. 
A native of Orange, Texas, Dal had attended 
both the University of Texas and Texas A&M 
before he became a Plebe at the age of twenty 
two. It was not long before his previous expe- 
rience became apparent. He quickly estab- 
lished himself as one of the class leaders, and 
as "the" expert on professional matters. Dallas 
is definitely the Marine tj^pe, as one might 
readily deduce from his abundance of dark 
wavy hair. A member of the Plebe pistol team, 
and an active participant on the battalion 
squash and rugby teams, Dallas has had a six 
N day practically every day. He makes time 
however to write to a certain young pharma- 
cist back in Texas and rumor has it that he 
may be planning something big for June of '72. 


Roy, who answers faster to "Hugo," came to 
Annapolis from Ashley, North Dakota. In his 
first year at the Academy Roy not only ex- 
celled in attitude, but even became honorary 
32nd Company cheerleader. Roy could be 
found leading cheers throughout Navy's losing 
seasons. But as Navy continued to lose, Roy fi- 
nally won at the B.C. game of Youngster year. 
There he met his delightful O.A.O., Louise, 
who he seems set on making his fiancee. Al- 
though an all league wrestler in high school, 
Hugo chose to participate in intramurals while 
at the Academy. Roy's academics resemble a 
sine curve as he has ranged from Sup's List to 
a L46 in one semester. He has been known U) 
rack 25 hours in a single day. With the experi- 
ence gained at USNA, Roy will be a credit to 
his hopeful service selection, N.F.O.

Tom comes from Tarzana, California, near 
Los Angeles, and is proud to call himself a Cal- 
ifomian, after moving around a lot. His father 
and brother both went to USNA ('35 and '64). 
Tom came to Annapolis straight out of high 
school, Navy was his only choice for school, but 
as time went by Stanford looked better and 
better. With an interest in music, Tom played 
with the NA-10, Concert Band and Musical 
Clubs Show. His past aspirations of a career in 
conducting brought him to lead these same 
groups. He also held offices in the French Club 
(going to France 2/c Year), and played squash 
and tennis. Like his Huntington Beach room- 
mate, he likes California girls, and hopes to get 
back west after graduation. 


Having appointments to both Navy and 
West Pomt, Dick's decision t-o become part of 
the Brigade was influenced by a Navy victory 
in the '67 Army-Navy game, and "those pretty 
blue uniforms." Although he would still take 
Navy over Army any day, he can no longer 
stand the sight of blue. For Dick the big river 
to cross was academics. Contrary to popular 
belief, it was grades, and not a 250 lb. Penn 
State linebacker that forced him out of foot- 
ball after winning his letter during his Young- 
ster year. Switchmg his major to fieldball, he 
was with 32 when they went to Brigades dur- 
ing his Plebe and Youngster years. He could 
always be found anywhere but in his own room 
studying. However, his competitive spirit, 
pride, and an ease in getting along with people 
should carry him above and beyond the aca- 
demic grind of the Academy and provide an 
excellent officer for the fleet. 


On 26 June 1968 Rod came from one Navy 
town to another in fulfillment of his father s 
greatest ambition. Being a Navy junior there 
was always talk of the Naval Academy. He 
spent most of his time either watehing the 
tube, eating popcorn, catching artificial rays, 
or dragging his favorite girl; once in a while he 
strove to beat the academics. Every afternoon 
one could find him out with the company 
heavyweight football team, rowing with the 
crew team, or possibly playing a little ball, 
that's if the call of tne rack wasn't louder. 
Navy Line will be getting another outstanding 
officer upon his graduation, for five years at 
least, til ne gets his own gas station. 


Gene who is sometimes called Pateh and 
sometimes called other things, is from Dear- 
born, Michigan. Gene, while pursuing a major 
in Mathematics, managed to find time to study 
in between 32nd Study Club meetings and 
SAC committee meetings. He, like the others 
in 32 have the distinction of being one of the 
few midshipmen who was a member of the 
color company. Two consecutive years in a row 
some will remember him for the fantastic "the 
night they raided the Hilton GiG," following 
the Navy-Air Force game 2/c Year. Others 
will remember him for living next door to two 
of the more colorful members of the Brigade. 
His first ambition is to become an aviator but 
no matter what job he holds he will serve his 
country with distinction.

Coming from Merritt Square, Philadelphia, 
Chuck found life at the Academy pleasurable. 
In fact, he enjoyed it so much that he decided 
to reap some extra benefits by hanging around 
a little longer. Academics posed no problem so 
Chuck turned his attention toward something 
more challenging — the pad — and could often 
be found arduously wrestling with the prob- 
lem. His waking hours were spent either with 
a soccer ball or escorting his young lovely 
about the environs of Annapolis. His room was 
the place to be for the "Game of the Week" 
since the reception on his "boob-tube" was sec- 
ond to none — including the wardroom's! The 
Academy will lose a longtime friend when 
Chuck leaves but the Navy will gain a lifer! 


Dale was born and raised in New Orleans, 
but now calls Huntington Beach, California, 
his home. The right combination of Southern 
manners and California ideas earned him a 
lovely reputation and many friends. He was a 
regular on intramural tennis, squash, and 
handball teams, and his interests included pho- 
tography, scuba diving, and sports cars. In 
fact. Dale could usually be found with his cam- 
era in hand or trying to invent ways to make 
his Austin-Healey go even faster. He claims 
California girls to be the prettiest in the world; 
thus far he s found himself involved with near- 
ly every one, from an Admiral's daughter to a 
true beach bunny. Fortunately, USNA has 
never affected his free spirit. Dale's personali- 
ty and abilities will make him a successful per- 
son, and friend to all. 


Whales, drifting in from the desert, was dis- 
illusioned by the desolation. Finding himself a 
cactus flower close by, he was happy. Saying 
what he believed and believing wnat he said, 
he was a true friend. An easy man to imitate 
at company get togethers, he laughed along, 
even if it hurt. Loving lightweight football, he 
suffered through with thirty-two. Loving 
sixth battalion water polo was much the same. 
He was made famous Plebe year as a Brigade 
pitcher rigger; for not havmg contemplated 
shooting himself in the foot, commentmg in 
Spanish from his rack late at night, having the 
singular green electric blanket m the company 
area, and ftr having — been fried by a master- 
at-arms for forcing his way into Momma "B." 
A man always thinking, he should find life an 
easy task filled with happiness.

"Schluder" was presented to 32 as a personal 
ffift of the great booming metropolis of Lans- 
downe, Maryland, and only changed to Navy 
$1.53 to get him the 25 mile distance to Mother 
"B." Larry has had several distinctions while 
here at Navy. He started off by rooming with 
a guy 5 years older than himself. Studies al- 
ways came first with Schluder. He's probably 
the only guy in the Brigade to spend 4 years on 
the Sup's List yet not a day could pass without 
him saying he was going to flunk out. He's 
been active in lacrosse, tennis. Drum & Bugle 
Corps, Softball, and was a member for the all- 
time great 32nd company lightweight football 
team. Larry's favorite interests in order, are: 
studying, football, studying, studying, getting 
dates, studying, playing drums, studying, and 
worrying. Schluder is bent on a military career 
and it looks now like he'll spend it wearing 
green. I'm sure the Corps will be a better out- 
fit with his joining them June of '72. 


Born in the Southwest suburbs of Philadel- 
phia, Soccer became a major pastime at an 
early age. It wasn't too much later that kick- 
ing the Black and White spotted ball got him 
into the Academy, after a short tour at NAPS, 
that is. At the Academy, he was learned that: 
money is everything; if you're getting tired 
during the Army game fall down and F-ma. 
With this background he intends to go to nu- 
clear power school and then the fleet. 


Rob came chopping into the Naval Academy 
from downtown Marietta, Ohio. Having out- 
standing grades, conduct and aptitude, he was 
immediately dubbed with the nickname 
"Bead." However, one day he sat down and de- 
cided "Why bother?" From that day on, he was 
appropriately called the "Boy Wonder." The 
32nd Company will always remember Boy for 
his pet hog, which by the time he graduated, 
was a familiar and welcome sight to all. Boy 
was also Vice-President of the 32nd Company 
Study Club. After graduation, Rob hopes to be 
a jet drivin' man after a short stint on some 
boat. Come June '72, the Navy will be getting 
a helluva guy. I hope they're ready for him. 


Tom jogged into Plebe Summer from the 
capital of our nation's first state, Dover, Dela- 
ware, wondering how to find his way to and 
from his room to such places as the Midn Store, 
Steerage, and the nearest head. Once oriented, 
he began looking for the eternal "coast" but- 
ton, which he found the first week of academic 
year when he chose a major in Management 
and was taken under the wings of his favorite 
firstie and squad leader member — CORKS. 
With Plebe year behind him, Wolfeman be- 
came one of the founding fathers of the mar- 
ried set and joined the Class of '71 in the pur- 
chasing of four wheeled transportation. Not 
known to stretch the truth more than once at 
any time, Tom should, through his great love 
of the sea, and fond remembrances of four 
years of marking time at Navy, be able to ac- 
complish any goal he sets for himself. 


Greg winged his way to the Naval Academy 
from the well known industrial complex of 
Poulsbo, Wash., and the University of Wash- 
ington, where he was the "color-mid" in his 
Navy ROTC Unit. Having earned the "Plebe 
Cup for his heroics on the Plebe crew team, 
Greg was well on his way to earning the nick- 
name of "Genghis" for, like his great great 
grandfather, he was known for his culture and 
sobriety. Genghis spent the majority of 2/c 
and 1/c years equally divided between his girl 
and her refrigerator, figuring out ways to buy 
his "Vette" early, stringing beads, and digging 
his way through Systems Engineering take 
homes. Ever since earning his black wings 
Youngster year, Genghis has had a definte de- 
sire, to fly — civilian air. However, in the 
meantime, the Navy will benefit from this de- 
fiant, dedicated, and determined man.

"Odie," as Bruce is known to one and all, 
came to the Chesapeake University of Naval 
Technology from Yorktown High School in Ar- 
lington, Virginia. Never one to let things get 
him down, Odie made it through Plebe year 
with a smile, or was he smiling because he had 
validated Plebe year (T-tables?). In the after- 
noons Bruce could be found guarding the "Hot 
Corner" on Lawrence Field and working 
towards his N* in baseball. The early mornings 
found him attacking the books in his never 
ending quest for stars. With his competitive 
spirit and desire to excel, Bruce will make an 
excellent ship driver for Uncle Sam's Canoe 


"J. T." came to the banks of the Severn 
after bidding farewell to the 'good life' in Mil- 
brae, California. He quickly became adjusted 
to Academy life and is always ready with an 
extemporaneous oration on the "last of the 
Plebe years." As an upperclass, J. T. soon 
earned the distinctive name of 'ragman,' and 
also distinguished himself in academics as he 
began to prepare himself for a career as a sub- 
jock. As a result of his famous glass stomach, 
J. T. spent most of his boxing lessons curled up 
on the mat but did prove himself to be a valu- 
able asset on company soccer and basketball 
teams. Though his social life seems to consist 
of one beautiful Mary after another, J. T. 
works hard on developing both his weekend 
bridge game and Sunday sleeping capabilities. 
John's ambition and drive will, no doubt, ena- 
ble him to succeed in his future career as a 
Naval officer. 


"Danes" graduated from Hoban High 
School in Akron, Ohio, and came directly to the 
Naval Academy. He is one of the big men in 
the company and throws the discus on the var- 
sity track team. His major is Analytical Man- 
agement and his favorite course in always 
ZN300. He loves those swimming lessons in PT 
class and can float as well as any lead block. 
The lucky girl who wins Tom's favor can be as- 
sured of receiving "tons" of love and affection. 
In this he has that professional way. As an of- 
ficer he will carry responsibility well and will 
be a good leader. His great ambition now is to 

Seven Hundred Eighty-Eight 


Never one to let USNAR or upperclassmen 
get in his way, hard-hat Rich started his week- 
end overnights Plebe year. He has continually 
amazed everyone by staying above 2.00. Al- 
ways a ladies' man from the start, Hondo 
spent more time down at the phone booths 
memorizing phone numbers than he did chow 
calls. Thougn he managed to remain single 
throughout his career at Canoe U., his aborted 
affairs will always remain a mystery to his 
friends. Although tall enough to be an asset to 
the basketball team, and equipped with his 
own personal pair of knee pads, Hondo found 
his calling on the front line of the Big Blue's 
offense. His "faster than a speeding turtle" 
wit, and unquivering devotion to duty will 
long be remembered by those who knew him 
and after a short tour of duty as a boat driver, 
one will certainly find him driving around the 
skies as a pilot for Navy Airways or milking 
cows back m Texas. 


"Bum-Bum," how can we forget him, al- 
though he has changed since "they" took away 
his long blonde hair and seersucker jacket. He 
believed in good appearance and because of it, 
he became a very popular man on Friday 
nights, since you could always find him in the 
room with the red and blue pole outside. His 
dreams of "wings of gold," up and flew away 
as Navy thought he should drive boats. Victory 
at Sea became his favorite song? Dave always 
scored big on academics, and on occasion in 
conduct, but this didn't stop him from trying 
harder. He never let serious studying interfere 
with a weekend. Regardless of his service se- 
lection, we will always remember "Bum-Bum." 


Darryl made the big step forward or back- 
ward, (he's still not sure) of coming to Navy 
after one year of civvie college. Since he comes 
from a Navy family, Darryl has seen various 
parts of the world, including Scotland and Ber- 
muda. By his own admission Darryl has "done 
nothing outstanding" (such modesty!!), other 
than play JV soccer, be a member of 2112 and 
sport "stars" on occasion. How he manages to 
squeeze study time into his demanding in-com- 
pany bridge tournaments, is not known. Darryl 
'thought' about becoming an airedale but has 
decided to join the Admiral's bubbleheads. 


Ralph is a native of Texas, and he was born 
100 years too late. His personality. Remington 
paintings, boots and six gun, are my proof. He 
IS an avid hunter, gun enthusiast, and general 
outdoorsman. The Sportsman's Club consumes 
the majority of his spare time. Thrift is one of 
his greatest virtues. He spends much of his 
time on projects designed to get what he 
wants, cheap. Ralph is resourceful and can ac- 
complish almost any task, regardless of per- 
sonal effort. If anything is ever needed, Ralph 
either has it or knows where to get it. Like 
many of us, Ralph faces Navy academics at 
every turn and looks forward to the big day 
and driving ships. 


Mike came to the Academy straight from 
high school in Schenectady, New York. He 
strove through the rigors of Plebe year with a 
strong heart and a cheerful mind despite the 
constant correction of such personalities as 
Veebi and Semi. When it was over he emerged 
with a new outlook and a new name, DUM- 
DUM. Second Class summer brought with it 
the purchase of a new Mustang and also the 
dream of a garage somewhere inside the 
7-mile limit. However, this dream was shat- 
tered with the proclamation of the Comman- 
dant's new car policy and the possibility of 4 
months restriction. As a result the car did 
spend 2/c year in a garage but this one was in 
Schenectady. Mike holds great promise for the 
Navy. His good sense of humor and inate abil- 
ity will always bring him friends wherever he

Hailing from Salt Lake City, but calling 
Bancroft Hall "home," Al could usually be 
found plajing his guitar or counting the days 
until he could hit the snowy slopes of Aspen or 
Alta again. Never one to let academics get be- 
tween nim and his rack, Al was always figur- 
ing ways to beat Navy with his eyes closed, 
most of'^the time meeting with success. Coming 
to the Academy with hopes of being a fly boy, 
Al discovered that a stint in five would save 
nine when he found out Navy spells 
0-C-E-A-N. His outward appearance of total 
relaxation and apathy gives little hint of his 
determination and drive towards a militarj' ca- 
reer and should he be able to make CNO in five 
years, he might just stick it out for a few 
more. Best remembered for his sense of humor 
and "classmate" loyalty, Al will prove to be a 
valuable catch for surface line. 


Scott came to Navy from the small, quiet 
town of Owensboro, Kentucky. Managing the 
varsity football team and teaching Sunday 
School are only two of the many contributions 
that Scott has made to the Academy. His dedi- 
cation to the naval service is equalled only by 
his dedication to a special girl back home. Scott 
loves the outdoors and sjjends much of his 
leave camping or hiking in the mountains of 
Colorado. Scott has all the qualities of a fine 
officer; he constantly strives toward perfec- 
tion in all he does, and with an attitude such as 
this he cannot help but be a great success. 


Coming from anywhere along the East 
Coast, our company gnome quickly showed 
that there wasn't much that coulci get him 
down. A Navy junior, Al had some idea of 
what to expect here at USNA and that, 
coupled with his fine attitude, led to a CPO po- 
sition by 2/c year with promises of things to 
come. Obsessed by the rock, "Alvin" was not 
very hard to find on any given afternoon. An 
avid sports enthusiast, Al always had time to 
get over to the natatorium and earn his N-star 
as a member of the varsity sub squad. His 
other free time was spent growing his hair out. 
Academics smiled on Alvin now and then and 
would have given him his pick of NFO classes 
before his decision to drive boats. Wherever he 
goes, we all know that Al will be able to work 
things out. 

Seven Hundred Ninety 


Hams came to Navy from Vandergrift, 
Penn. He is a family man, a member of the 
Masons, and gets a letter from his church at 
home every week. Here at Navy he has distin- 
guished himself by seldom bemg out of the 
rack for more than three hours at a time, and 
a seemingly endless assortment of young 
lovelies. Ham's quick smile and friendliness 
are among his attributes. Whenever a bull ses- 
sion occurs. Hams is bound to be in the middle. 
Hams takes his professional role very serious- 
ly, and his earnest enthusiasm and desire to 
' do the job right" should make him a valuable 
and respected addition to the ranks of the 
green men. 



"Easy Gene," as he is known by the "broth- 
ers," hails from Paterson, N. J. He considers 
Phila. his home, though, because that's where 
he feels most at home. While still a senior in 
high school "Easy" was so impressed with a 
presentation given by the Clifton Naval Re- 
serve training center that as soon as he turned 
17 he eagerly enlisted and has been associated 
with the "Canoe Club" ever since. Gene's ex- 
tracurricular activities include WMID and the 
Gun Club. Upon graduation he hopes to go into 
Navy Line. 


A true Navy man, JG hit USNA from the 
bustling metropolis of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, 
and hasn't let Navy life get him down yet. He 
had a bit of a rugged Plebe year with scrunt 
and the boys, but came through in fine shape. 
The academic departments just haven't been 
able to beat Greg and he can usually be found 
taking full advantage of his gravy underneath 
the blankets. He claims that keeping his blinds 
down and lights off are merely practice for his 
future life under the sea. His quick wit and 
great personality make him a big hit with the 
women, so he spends most of his time trying to 
maintain his bachelor status. Although he still 
can't figure out why anybody would want a 
boat that doesn't go beneath the surface, it 
looks as though he'll be driving one for awhile 
before going to nuclear power school. J. G. is 
sure to find success in whatever he does. 


Denny made his appearance at USNA 
dreaming only of Phantoms and Navy Air; 
now it looks like he'll leave the same way. A 
native New Yorker, "CM" quickly discovered 
something besides the hustle of the city and 
that was the rustle of the rack. That didn't 
stop him from starring in company sports; that 
was just something that had to be done. 
Denny's biggest accomplishment at Navy was 
growing a set of sideburns; started in Young- 
ster year, they should look good by June Week 
'72. Always in good physical shape, he did have 
one lingering ailment, he was allergic to bar- 
ber shops. The air blowing thru the clippers up 
on 8-4 did wonders for him however. Faced 
with the big decision after two years on the 
bridge on his boat, "lifer-striker" O'Malley will 

Erobably head back to Pensacola and the BOQ 
ar. Who can tell? 

Seven Hundred Ninety-One 


"Pisser" left behind the sunny beaches of 
California and entered the Academy as an 
eager Plebe. He soon realized his error, yet this 
only accentuated his already fine sense of 
humor. His room is almost always filled with a 
menagerie of Plebes masquerading as any- 
thing from A to Z. The "wop," being a true 
Italian, found the academics here another 
Navy R.A. Undaunted by grades he always 
managed to spend numerous hours dragging. 
Next to his girl, Mark's biggest interest is 
skiing at Heavenly Valley, California, during 
Christmas leave. Also a standout on the com- 
pany soccer team, he can either be seen on the 
field or running around it between games. His 
future holds the dream of Navy Air after the 
prerequisite surface line. But no matter where 
he goes or what he does, Mark is sure to be a 


"Schubs," "Lefty," "H.S.," or Jerry as he is 
sometimes called ("Dear" by his roommate!) 
comes from a small town on the banks of the 
Mississippi River in Missouri called St. Louis, 
which is also, the home of his future quest, the 
elusive Phantom. This flaming geldmg from 
the blue horizons, chose majoring in Aerody- 
namics over graduating and, although he will 
succeed in both areas, it will be just barely 
with his rabbit foot in one hand and his feather 
in the other. What were those grades, Schubs? 
"B-B-A???" He does make good paper air- 
planes, though. Besides his fine academic abili- 
ties, Jerry is also well known and depended 
upon by at least one company sport each sea- 
son, that is, for as much of the season before 
he makes his way inevitably to the excused 
squad right around P-rade season. He will be a 
definite asset to whichever branch of the Navy 
that finally catches him and to the girl that fi- 
nally bags him. 


Squeeza slid into USNA one June afternoon, 
an hour and a half late with a sword under one 
arm, a 'gotcha' in his eye, and promptly started 
a trail of beads straight to the pad. True to 
form he teamed up with the good, and the ugly 
for the good life in Mother "B." Steve soon 
fenced, danced and smiled his way into the 
fencing coach's heart, after all when you're the 
best, you're the best, being the best Sisa can be 
founa in all the hot spots of USNA, his pad, 
the loft, or on t-tables valiantly battling sugar 
shakers and grabby teammates for the first 
piece of whatever happens to walk by. Always 
a good man on away trips, Steve is noted for 
his ability to win 'em, love 'em, leave 'em, and 
still have enough left for a party. Speaking of 
parties, Steve earned his N* by taking the 
final bout against Army and getting into a 
rumble with a WooPoo at the drunken orgy 
that night. The Navy will find in him an out- 
standing man, a true friend and one hell of a 
fencer. For five years. But want do ya want? 
When you're the best, you're the best.

From across the river in Severna Park, Md., 
via a short stay at NAPS, came Dave Reppard. 
After 'squaring away' most of his classmates 
Plebe summer 'Rep' soon went on to become a 
respected and well-liked member of the com- 
pany. Rep has become known as a great la- 
crosse player, all around good guy, and malin- 
gerer iirst class. Dave's card game and "Risk" 
marathons are famous throughout the compa- 
ny and so is his reputation as a 'married man,' 
since Leslie has stuck by him since that lonely 
June day in 1968. It is certain that the qualities 
which made Rep a standout here at Navy will 
assure him success in his future years as an of- 


Schneids wasn't born, but manufactured in 
Buffalo, N.Y. He has distinguished himself in 
the company as the best of the "sand blowers." 
Dave takes an active interest in the profession- 
al aspects of the Navy, and has amazed the ac- 
ademic department by his ability to maintain a 
passing average. Dave has excelled in all phas- 
es of the stnper organization. Rather than 
cheat a "classmate" of the "opportunity to 
excel," he turned down the position of Compa- 
ny Commander, all three sets, and chose in- 
stead to strike for 4th set MPO. Without a 
doubt, Dave will be one of the foremost boat 
drivers in today's "fun Navy." 


Vine, like most of us, came to Navy an op- 
timistic impressionable and diligent young 
man. He showed himself to be a hard worker 
during Plebe year. In fact, in recognition of his 
attitude and performance Malo took Sherm on 
as a "protege." After a very interesting hun- 
dredth night, Vine was ready to go on to 
bigger and better things. Upon returning after 
Youngster cruise to good old Mother "B, ' Vine 
found that although you may forget about the 
OOD, certain OOD's won't forget about you. 
As a Youngster he developed an interest in 
sailing and has participated on the varsity sail- 
ing racing team te Bermuda and Nova Scotia 
on the Jubilee. Although Sherm plans to take 
a short ocean cruise after graduation, his main 
interest lies in flight pay and wings of gold! 


His father being an Academy graduate, it 
was only natural that John Willie should come 
to Canoe U., though his hopes are to accom- 
plish in five years what took his father 30. 
Coming from Virginia Beach with his surf- 
board and sub-cultural ideas, the company 
"freak" found the Block section of Baltimore a 
little rough Plebe year and thereafter settled 
for the more enhancing dives of D.C. Never 
one to spend anymore extra time within the 
confines of the wall than he had to, Willie 
could usually be found encouraging his class- 
mates and expounding on the many bennies of 
Navy over a tall cool one. John was continually 
fighting the academic department for accept- 
ance of his Trident Project, "Developmental 
Study Habits by OsmOsis." Always remem- 
berea for his trials and tribulations with the 
fair sex, better known as Truth or Conse- 
quences, John will make a fine officer for 
when the hats have come down in June of '72, 
he will have left 5 minutes earlier and headed 
down Highway 50. 


Westy is thirty-third company's resident 
Viking and true to form his one big weakness 
is a beautiful girl. When not chasing blondes in 
Sweden, Eric could be caught adding new 
chapters to his little black book with an im- 
pressive directory of brunettes and reds. How- 
ever he also found time, as a member of the 
Big Brothers, to share the better things in life 
and just plain g^iving an outstanding example 
of what friendship is all about. Not to be out- 
done in sports either, Sweatberg made good 
use of his mean size and brute strength to bol- 
ster company football and softball and fill out 
the roster for soccer. Academics for Eric were 
never a failing and this Connecticut Yankee 
didn't have to worry about Lord Jim's Court. 
To those who know him and those who will. 
Rick Westberg will always be counted on as a 
sincere friend. The Navy will have the best 
when it has Westy.

Still wiping the Georgia clay from his red 
neck, "High School HaniDliss" came to USNA 
as the outstanding jock at NAPS and has since 
become somewhat of a legend at Navy, al- 
though not necessarily in athletics. Since leav- 
ing a large portion of his brain on the goal line 
at South Bend, Indiana, Youngster year, an in- 
coherent "Huh" is about all one is able to ex- 
tract from "Cong." Unfortunately, Kevin's 
football career was cut short by a knee injury; 
but, undaunted, within a short time Kevm 
could be found running around Ingram Field 
with a lacrosse stick. When not buried in the 
books of his Ops Analysis major, Kevin could 
often be found dealing eight card stud (?) or 
other variations of poker that only his "nim- 
ble" fingers could invent. Never one to miss a 
party, Hamblis can tell you his only problem is 
keeping the girls away from his body. On the 
serious side, Kevin has distinguished himself 
as Company Honor Rep, high aptitude and 
conduct rating, and a fine QPR. Whatever 
branch of the Navy Kevin chooses to enter 
upon graduation, they will receive a diligent 
and outstanding officer. 


Frank came to us as a rosy-cheeked NROTC 
student from South Carolina. He quickly con- 
quered the normal midshipman traits of sleep- 
ing, seduction, and sobering up. Frank was 
never the type to stop at these ordinary 
achievements, so he undertook to become an 
Ail-American Musical Club Show specialist. 
Long hours spent in the show's spaces strug- 
gling with parts but mostly with players have 
taken their toll on him, but in the end he al- 
ways has managed to come out on top. Navy 
Air may seem to be unlikely for such a tal- 
ented soul as Frank; yet he has always been 
able to handle himself whenever he gets high, 
so we all have confidence in him. In the sum- 
mer of '72 truly the fleet will have a new expe- 
rience when Frank gets to fly out and hit

Virg, slithered in from Moline, 111., and 
quickly established himself as Club 34's per- 
vert-in-residence. A ladies' man with an amaz- 
ing talent, Virg unerringly picked voluptuous 
beauties whose high morals and fantastic 
claims were surpassed only by their gigantic 
mental capacities. Never known as one to let 
classmate loyalty stand in his way, Virg's thes- 
pian talents went a long way toward getting 
nim out of sticky situations. With all his love 
life and willin^ess to bilge his classmates 
aside, Virg's prime goal remained: to become 
the man who combined the best of J. Baldwin, 
B. J. Murphy, T. A. Yawn, and Les Reading 
(ex-6 batt conduct cases) into one fantastic 


"Daddy" came straight to USNA after grad- 
uating from high school in Ridley Park, Pa. Al- 
though experiencing difficulties with the con- 
duct system first semester Plebe year, Tom 
settled down and since has had little trouble in 
that respect. Now a Political Science major 
after a run in with Aero-Space Eng., Tom's 
grades have reflected his ability in this field. 
Even though the youngest member of his 
classmates m 34, he has lived up to his nick- 
name, "the Daddy," many a Saturday night by 
taking care of two derelict roommates. After 
the completion of afternoon classes, Tom could 
always be found enjoying his favorite pastime, 
the rack. Tom's main interests include poker, 
horse racing, and girls (young ones?). Tom 
hopes to be heading for Pensacola after a brief 
pleasure cruise commencing immediately after 


"Dev" came to the Academy from Dumas, 
Texas, after a stop at Prep School for a year. 
He could be found on the lightweight football 
field every Fall afternoon and kept busy with 
Softball, squash or fieldball the rest of the 
year. Remember the rescue squad searching 
for the unconscious Devin on a mountain in 
Hawaii. And you can't forget the nude mid- 
night ride into school after a strip poker game. 
Youngster was easy to take with his blue 
Vette parked on Farragut Field and his famil- 
iarity with gate zero made weeknight liberty a 
regular event. Wine seemed to bring out a spe- 
cial belligerent quality in Jim (remember Pen- 
sacola Beach). Poker provided an additional in- 
come for him as he all but commanded the big 
games. Jim escaped the wrath of the Execu- 
tive Dept. narrowly at times (like the football 
pool) but narrowly was good enough. After a 
stint at sea Jim plans to go flying and will 
certainly continue to set the pace and be suc- 


Wally, hailing from Harrisburg, Pa., came 
straight to US^fA out of high school. He quick- 
ly adjusted to the rigors of Plebe year and took 
it in stride. Never one for hitting the books too 
hard, the only thing that seemed to bother him 
that first year was academics. When not in 
class, Wally or "The Salamander," to many of 
his friends, could usually be found in the swim- 
ming pool. His work and dedication to the 
swimming team quickly paid off as he won his 
first N* Youngster year. For those of us that 
know him, Wjilly will always be respected for 
the high goals he has set for himself and his 
courage in achieving them. Always one to look 
on the bright side of things, he helped Navy 
become a little more bearable for everyone. 
With his positive attitude and his sincere de- 
sire to succeed, Wally will make a fine addition 
to the surface Navy after graduation. 


Dave, better known as "Gordie" or "Vanilla 
Man" was a regular member of the club's. 
Rally Crew and n)r a short time involved him- 
self with the activities of the house. Academics 
presented very few problems for Dave and are 
to his policy of not being seen nor heard, he 
managed to avoid contact with the executive 
department. He could always be counted on 
for help, if you were smart enough to under- 
stand him. When not participating in advanced 
courses of rack or just drifting around he could 
be found competing in various sports ranging 
from squash to fieldball. His well rounded 
knowledge of the yard and "gate zero" enabled 
him to take full advantage of the weeknight 
liberty policy. During his Youngster year he 
only had to walk the short distance from the 
8th Wing to the Farragut Field parking lot 
and he would be off in a silver Corvette for a 
weekend of fun. Dave will most likely enter 
the CEC and make final ties with a certain Sue 
upon graduation. Whatever he chooses to do 
will certainly be a welcome addition to any 
unit and a credit to the Academy.

One inebriated Saturday night in Pitts- 
burgh, Gary emerged as the immortal hero of 
the Navy-Pitt football game ("Cathy, I scored 
three touchdowns today."). Smce this episode 
he has been known as Griff Marchetti to the 
boys of thirty-four. "Kee-low, where are 
you?", "Maria, ' and "Really, I'm all right!" 
stand out from Virginia Beach as he was being 
hauled away by the local law enforcers. All of 
Gary's time at the Academy hasn't been spent 
with a bottle in his hand. Since coming from 
the top of his class in Union Endicott High 
School in Endicott, N. Y., Gary has maintained 
a 3.0 cum in Aero-Space Engineering. He 
stands high among his classmates of thirty- 
four in aptitude for the naval service and has 
been active in instituting the new Plebe indoc- 
trination policies. After graduation, Gary will 
be heading for the open seas. 


The "Johns" also known as the "Desert 
Rat," entered USNA from the ^eat state of 
Arizona. He excelled in academics from the 
start of Plebe year and reached the coveted 
4.00 for his efforts second semester Plebe year. 
On any given nite Mark could be found in a 
room down the back shaft listening to the 
sound of chips hitting the desk top and the 
words "I have four aces." Never to be one to 
pass up a party, he will be remembered for 
many of his ventures with his accomplice, the 
C.L. Mark could always be found reading the 
back of his eyelids, whenever athletics didn't 
call. No matter what branch the Navy he en- 
ters, Mark will find happiness and success 
throughout his Naval career. Andy will make 
sure of that. 


Pat entered the Academy straight from high 
school mostly out of curiosity. When he he- 
came an upperclassman he decided that the 
"final solution" to the Plebe system was a firm 
handshake. Known to many of his classmates 
as the "Friendly Drelb," he decided to spend 
the greatest possible part of his remaining 
years at Navy in the pad. As for after gradua- 
tion, Pat will know where he is going after he 
gets there. The preceding was a paid political

Rick came to USNA from sunny Georgia 
and quickly learned that not all the people in 
the U.S. talk with a drawl. The "Southern 
Gentleman" early adjusted to Navy life and 
began early his quest for academic excellence. 
His hard work always paid off and earned him 
a spot on the Sup's List. Although all of Navy's 
good deals didn't appeal to him, Rick found 
time to support the Big Blue and Gold by sing- 
ing in the Chapel Choir and Glee Club and par- 
ticipating in numerous company and batt 
sports. His courteous manners and renowned 
conduct earned "Ratey" the respect of every- 
one in the company. Although Rick wasn't 
crazy about being a boat driver, the Navy was 
lucky to receive such a dedicated and moti- 
vated officer. 


It couldn't have been the "Join the Navy and 
see the world" slogan that got Boe to come to 
USNA, as he was already a world traveler be- 
fore making his stop at Tucson, Arizona, and 
finally USNA. Life at beautiful USNA was a 
shock for Boe at first, but he recovered from 
his false start Plebe year, and showed his 
stuff. Academics were just another thing to 
keep Boe away from his new found love of sail- 
ing. By the end of Youngster year he had his 
pnzed yawl command qualification, and 2/c 
year had his own boat. Even a coUision-at-sea 
in his yacht didn't dampen his love for the 
water, on which he lived, winter, spring, sum- 
mer and fall. No wonder Boe plans on a career 
in surface line. After a 44 foot boat he is ready 
and willing to move up to bigger and better 
things, like ships, where he undoubtably will 
make a fine officer. 


An outstanding and dedicated wrestler dur- 
ing the winter months, Tom is one of the lead- 
ing derelicts among the men in 34 the rest of 
the year. Never one to miss a rally, Tom plans 
to publish his book, how to study less, and 
enjoy it more, after graduation. A great guy 
with an unbelievable knack for making 
friends, he is always willing to lend a helping 
hand when needed. Even though he is Welsh 
along with the famous singer, he can't even 
sing in the shower, but does quite will snoring 
in his sleep. We will always remember his an- 
tics at the Seattle Club, that mountain in 
Hawaii, Pensacola Beach, or the cuties in Ti- 
juana. He knows gate zero as well as any of us, 
and when anyone mentions 735 Club, Tiny's, 
Foofs, Donahue's, or McDermott's he's right in 
there with the best of us. A really great guy 
with the stuff to go all the way, hell make a 
fine officer and be a success wherever he goes 
after graduation. 


Craig had the art of not studying but still 
making Dean's or Sup's List. Always willing to 
talk over a problem. ISO's, winning N"s and 6 
stripes kept him busy thru 2/c year. One of the 
phenomenal hell raisers at the "House" every 
weekend. Knew gate zero like most of 34. Es- 
pecially known for his gatoring ability during 
June Week and his sound financial invest- 
ments? Once Craig made a decision, you could 
count on it being changed. Mucho nicknames 
(like everyone in the club) but mostly "Beav" 
or "Little General." Teal Blue MGB's seemed 
to attract him, even if it did mean 4 months re- 
striction. Marine Air takes up most of his 
thoughts right now . . . but it could be differ- 
ent graduation day. Will be a fantastic asset in 
whatever field he chooses. 


A true Southern gentleman, "Mo" hails 
from New Orleans. Everyone who's ever met 
him swears that he can talk to computers 
which is why he helped most of his classmates, 
through Navy's Digital Dilemma. He doesn't 
spend all his time on the books however, Glee 
Club trips. Chapel Choir and Musical Club get 
a lot of his attention too! "Mo" got bitten by 
the bug at Pensacola and therefore has hopes 
of being a "chopper jockey" when he breaks 
away from USNA in June stopping only to 
walk down the aisle with a Certain Southern 
Belle. Both She and the Navy are gonna get a 
real good man.

Jim, better known as Archie, reigns from 
Florida, the sunshine capital of the world. His 
knowledge in Physics and Engineering was 
constantly being topped by classmates who 
were in need of help with something. One of 
his favorite pastimes seemed to be swimming 
sub squad and one of his most liked tests was 
the mile run. Though never reluctant to go out 
with the boys and live it up a little, his style 
was cramped somewhat by one of the local 
cutiep. Not to be outdone, when Archie did 
something, he did it big. Whether it was spend- 
ing money or picking up demerits. Without a 
doubt Jim will enjoy and succeed as one of our 
Navy's boat drivers. 


Chris is the impossible type. Not only is he 
trying to tackle an impossible Physics major, 
but he is also shooting for an impossible "N ' as 
a varsity lightweight crew oarsman (at 5'7"!I). 
He comes from the impossibly remote podunk 
of Reno, Nevada, and it is impossible to ever 
find him out of the pad, except on the week- 
ends when he pursues the attention of one cer- 
tain young laav he knows. Despite the overall 
impossibility of Chris just as he stands, he is an 
amiable and well liked personality. Dedication, 
perseverence, and concern are the impossible 
traits which he values. Who knows?!? With all 
this he may one day be blessed with receiving 
that ultimate impossibility, Ensign USN. 


Being a local boy, from Rockville, Maryland, 
Tom hated to give up the comforts of nome. 
So, even as a 4/c, his weekends were none too 
dull. His main ECA while at the Academy has 
been the Glee Club, whose frequent trips and 
tours have offered him ample opportunity for 
the happiness of pursuit. Along with his ef- 
forts in Oceanography "TJ" has found time for 
company soccer, basketball and fieldball, and 
participation in the Musical Club Show from 
time to time. Tom considers aviation the 
"only" service selection, and will no doubt 
make a fine jet jockey, as he vows to remain 
married only to the Navy.

Arriving from Eureka (?), Missouri, in the 
hills of the Ozarks, Hugh began a brilliant mil- 
itary career dimmed only by annual drowning 
sessions under the close supervision of Navy's 
fine swimming instructors. During his four 
year stay in the loving arms of Mother "B," 
Mac" participated in Plebe and varsity fenc- 
ing ana became the proud winner of a Black 
"N" Youngster year. Second class year saw 
Mac shift his interests toward pushing weights 
and fighting the pad monster. Another bed of 
interest for Hugh, was in the ham radio club, 
of which he soon became Vice-President. Be- 
cause of his dedication, determination, and 
great competitive spirit, Hugh will prove to be 
a first rate officer in the field of his choice 
upon graduation. 


Hailing from the wide open spaces of 
Huntley, Wyoming, Jim ran up over a hundred 
demerits first semester Plebe year. After that 
he adapted to life in the hall and began his 
yearly duels with the AcBoard. A Literature 
major, Jim was devoted to the Bull Dept. but 
didn't quite see eye to eye with wires. Calculus 
or Thermo. He always remained one step 
ahead of the board, however, thus proving his 
belief that all the gouge was written on the 
back of his eyelids. Keefer (his only printable 
nickname), was an essential ingredient for a 
party and he committed himself totally to hav- 
ing a good time. After graduation, Jim intends 
to fly helicopters for the Marines. An out- 
standing person, Jim will undoubtably achieve 
success in whatever he endeavors. 


Cole came to the Academy from Garde na, 
California, the flower capital of the world, via 
NAPS. Initially one of the more fun-loving 
and rowdy members of Club 34, during Young- 
ster year he stumbled into a 5'3" roadblock 
named Sue and was transformed into one of 
the more domestic and disciplined members of 
the group. Still not one to turn down a good 
time, he was always present at the bigger and 
better events of the year. Cole displayed much 
leadership ability and motivation and was held 
in high esteem by those around him. He will be 
a credit to the service and should do well as a 
career line officer.

A renowned world traveler, Jon had settled 
in Santa Barbara, California, before he moved 
to USNA. What was, at first, a frightening 
surprise, turned into a hearty challenge. And 
Jon s competitive spirit met tnat challenge ad- 
mirably. Whether it was rowing down the Sev- 
ern or grinding out his favorite Engineering 
problem, Jon never did anything halfway. 
Most noted for his ability with the opposite 
sex, Jon always found liberty quite enjoyable. 
In the hall he kept sane by building superintri- 
cate models of tanks and ships. His deceptively 
quiet, unique personality in company with his 
many talents are certain to blossom into one 
fine officer whether he makes it to the moon 
or selects a career at sea. 


When Ken Smith came to the U.S. Naval 
Academy from Fort Worth, Texas, he was ded- 
icated to track, academics, and a certain 
Southern belle named Jeannie. Throughout his 
4 years here he has remained faithful to all 
three pursuits. Known as Smitty, K. R., or just 
Ken, he consistently lent academic aid to 
floundering classmates. He is always willing to 
join right in when a party is called and some- 
times even makes his own (remember the bus 
rides to Philadelphia?). Most of the time the 
Reg Book was his dictionary with every action 
on his part having a definite reason. Often 
seen quietly playing his guitar Ken is thought- 
ful and perhaps the most even tempered guy 
at the Academy. As an ME major Ken's slip 
stick has been slipping for four years earning 
him high academic honors, usually Sup's List. 
Accepting a billet as an EDO is his eventual 
goal and with his terrific qualifications he 
should encounter little difficulty. The extra 
share of shore time would be hard to take, huh, 
K. R.? 


"The Blade," as Steve has come to be known, 
arrived at Canoe U from the Civil War battle- 
fields of Va. with thoughts of Navy 
Blue & Gold on his mind, but was rudely awak- 
ened bv those familiar words of "Come 
around. ' Those days have long since past when 
he didn't know whether he was coming or 
going and now has settled down to serve in the 
forces of his God and country. His academic 
endeavors always gave way to Bible studies 
and to the blue trampoline. On the fields of 
Farragut and Hospital Point Steve spent plen- 
ty of time in the intramural circuit which was 
only exceeded by the time spent in Sick Bay 
with injuries. Steve's high standards and pride 
in his work assure him of a bright future wher- 
ever the Lord or Uncle Sam may lead.

Garden City, New York's hero came to Navy 
because he hked boats. He soon found out 
though, that the Navy doesn't have boats so he 
chose the next best thing, ships. Paul's major 
in Oceanography and his insatiable desire for 
life at sea promise to be greatly rewarding to 
the Navy. When not playing with his pet star- 
fish, Paul could usually be found wrestling or 
weightlifting in the gym. He has made several 
appearances on the Sup's List but he is still 
best known for his eating habits. He intro- 
duced "Bob Hoffman" and "Hi-Proteen" to 
the Naval Academy and soon had many of his 
classmates eating health food. It's ques- 
tionable whether Navy Line for Paul and he 
cannot wait to find out what the "real Navy" 
is like. We're sure he will prove himself a great 
asset to the fleet! 


William Lester Snyder, better known as 
Snydes and "the Hound," hails from the moun- 
tains of Northwestern Pennsylvania. He let- 
tered in golf and football at Kedbank Valley 
High School and went on to earn an N* for the 
Navy varsity golf team. Bill survived Plebe 
and Youngster years, the Mechanical Engi- 
neering majors' program and his weekly en- 
counters with the PhysEd Dept. by quickly ad-- 
justing to meet the demands of Academy life. 
Bill entered Youngster year by establishing his 
own reputation as a man to be counted on for 
good times. His well known legend as social co- 
ordinator for term breaks had to be retold 
after each term break in a bigger way. With 
much hard work and the respect of his class- 
mates and those around him. Bill will be a 
credit to the service. Bill is going greyhounds 
after graduation. 


John, better known as "the Hog," was the 
slash of Club 34, almost perpetually sporting 
stars. A Chemistry major, JV soccer player 
until he got zapped, John cut loose from the 
test tubes occasionally for a thrill packed ride 
in the Blue Max. In fact, most of the bus rides 
John attended were pretty exciting affairs. 
Weekends not withstanding, nuclear power is 
John's choice. With a level head that is orient- 
ed toward academics, the "nucs" will gain a 
good man. Prof. Gilley will lose a staunch sup- 
porter when the Hog leaves the Antiphonal 
Choir. A good friend of everybody in the com- 
pany, John will surely go far in the fleet. 


Justin John Wayne, Green Beret, Paranoid 
Killer, Airborne, Bill Winney came to the 
Academy straight from high school in Arling- 
ton, Virginia. Upon arriving at Severn U. 
Plebe year hit him with a thud, but he man- 
aged to recover and make it through. Upon 
completion of Plebe year, determined to prove 
that he could take more than the average Pooh 
Bear, he went to Sunny Ft. Benning, Ga. 
where he gained the "coveted" silver wings. 
Since then his main concerns have been get- 
ting his gold wings, 1/c year, and wooing a cer- 
tain Salisbury State Coed. Quantico seems to 
be the general direction that Bill is headed 
after graduation. While spending his time 
there that certain coed will attempt to lead 
him to the altar.

Ken, came to USNA from nearby Virginia, 
planning to spend more time over the water 
than on it. Quickly establishing himself as 
"The Bead," he became known for his genial 
disposition and calm reaction to the everyday 
occurrences in his new environment. Not ex- 
celling in any one sport but enjoying all, he 
will probably be best remembered for his 
skiing efforts Youngster year. The ravages of 
time will put him on the water rather than 
above it for service selection. Whatever the 
choice the Navy will gain a dedicated new 


"Dichy's" command voice, developed 
through Plebe summer and CMOD watches, 
his innocent participation in shower and raid- 
ing parties, his insensible fearlessness in at- 
tackmg anything in sight, moonlite dips in the 
local pool, nis adeptness in handling ski poles, 
his amazing abstinence from chow while mak- 
ing weight for lightweight crew only inter- 
rupted by an occasional "whamma" of a whole 
apple or cake, quickly made him a standout in 
the company. The "Sugar Bear," who hails 
from Saginaw, Mich., can transform any neck- 
lace into a lavalier. Silly Bear! During off-sea- 
son crew, Dicky amazes everyone by his dex- 
terity at quarterbacking and on the basketball 
court. After graduation having majored in 
Math, Dick will set his long range sights on 
Navy Air. 


Coming from a military family Bob spent his 
carefree years jumping from state to state and 
country to country; he now calls Quebec, Cana- 
da, home. Most at home with a gun in his hand, 
Bob left an O.D. speechless one afternoon 
when he was unexpectedly confronted with a 
loaded pistol while inspecting rooms. Starting 
with but limited, experience in booze he man- 
aged to develop a love for mixing and is usual- 
ly found at parties tying one on but never feel- 
ing it afterwards, though he learned the hard 
way that a load of beer and a long ride from 
Army don't mix. Known in the company for 
his "pro" gouge it was apparent that the 
"Greyhounds" of Surface Line were for him.

Jeff came to USNA with a fine high school 
record of sports and academics left behind him 
on the Island. While at the Academy Jeff has 
continued to excel in sports as a member of the 
varsity lacrosse team. On the other hand he 
has been a constant struggle to hit the books. 
His QPR is indicative of the hard work and in- 
terest he puts into his work. His rallying, and 
general friendly attitude have earned him 
many friends at USNA. He be a woodfolk by 
name — Armadillo. Will do great anywhere he 


"Evs" came lo the Academy from the hus- 
tling melroi)()iis of Decatur, Illinois, and his 
first claim lo fame was the innocent way in 
which he Ijilged his classmates by inadvert- 
ently volunteering Ihcm for |)ush-up contest 
and i)oster projects. This characteristic earned 
him the nickname Charlie Brown. Youngster 
year l^rought another fame to Gary as his deck 
could blind anyone on any given occasion. In 
fact, it was said that "Mr. Evans could wax 
floors in any major college campus in the na- 
tion and do a good job." An extremely devoted 
individual Gary spent much of his time with 
the "Blue Machine" and the Masqueraders 
where he was head of the Make-Uj) Gang and 
Stage Construction Crews. Even though this 
took up much of his study time Evs always 
managed to pull the grades out on finals. Gary 
wants to make it with Navy Air even though 
there will he a slight delay. 


Dave, or Cookie as he is usually called, 
joined 35 for his second Youngster year there- 
by becoming the SOPA of 35. After his battle 
with the academic board, Cookie came back to 
gain a place on the Sup's List. Due to an outgo- 
mg personality and quick wit, he soon became 
one of the best liked men in the company. Al- 
though not loathe to studjnng. Cookie is al- 
ways ready for a party and is seldom seen 
weekends unless in the company of a certain 
Maryland coed. An ardent bird watcher, Dave 
has found he prefers Robins over Whooping 
Cranes. He has also exhibited a fondness for 
good music and CIC drills, the combination of 
which led to many memorable Saturday after- 
noons his first Youngster year. Although op- 
ting for air, Cookie is not sure if he wants two 
years E.D. in the fleet for no credit. No matter 
where service selection takes him, the Navy 
will be gaining a fine officer. 


"The Mung," as Gary is better known, has to 
be one of the most notorious members of the 
company. If you hear "Have I gotta deal for 
you, ' emerging from the halls, you can be sure 
that it's Gary on one of his "non-profit" under- 
takings. While completing a rigorous Oceanog- 
raphy major, the Mung received his N as a 
member of the lightweight football team. 
Being a "lightweight," Gary seems to he al- 
ways on a diet; but let it never he said that a 
diet stopi)ed 'em from satisfying his passion 
for Italian sausage subs. Because of his effer- 
vescent personality, Munger is always the first 
one to be invited to a party, and the last one to 
be carried out. As a party goer, Gary rates 
with the best of 'em. Be him woodfolk or field 
folk, student or football player, i\n- Mung is a 
winner in every sense of the woi'd. 


After attending the Univ. of Tenn. for one 
year, Beadle swiftly established himself at 
USNA as a native of Oak Ridge, Tenn., with 
his infamous twang. His famous line after a 
bird flew over his cap Plebe summer was "it 
couldn't have happened to a nicer guy, Sir." He 
quickly logged in more hours of study than 
thought humanly possible, with amazingly suc- 
cessful results. After study hour, when his 
pinging sessions were over Beadle, between 
mouthiuls of chow, proved to be likeab'e and 
full of humorous stones. A hard worker, John's 
notable achievements include playing on Plebe 
and varsity basketball teams, being a member 
of the Glee Club and selection as a Trident 
Scholar. A strong desire to excel should carry 
him far. 


The Kinger is well-renowned as one of 35's 
nocturnal animals (along with the Groover). At 
1500 he may often he observed pad ward; at 
0300 he can he found slashing in the company 
office. Two and a half years of making weight 
for boxing have resulted in his total inability 
to pass up a square meal. Though he hails from 
Milwaukee, Matt is not particularly known for 
his tremendous alcohol capaciLy. A diligent, if 
not overly intelligent M.E. major headed for 
the line. King's exam bywords remain, 
"F=ma and you can't push a rope."

One of the original field folk, Mouse Klein is 
truly an easygoing Southern boy hailing from 
Roanoke, Virginia. His interests while at the 
Academy are centered with his sports in the 
intramural program, and extracurricular ac- 
tivities on the weekends. He'll never forget the 
June Week at the cabins. His ability to get 
along well with everyone will keep him friends 
wherever he goes. 


"Koalo," "Drift," Rackmaster of 35, cool, 
calm, and collected, enjoying the benefits of 
life at USNA — hard rock, the rack, and lots 
of leave. On leave the perennially hybernating 
bear hits the beach with surfboard m hand, or 
for D.C. with seldom seen enthusiasm. One of 
the most amazing qualities of the "wonder 
boy" from Norfolk was his ability to slash fi- 
nals during his free time, to the amazement of 
many classmates. True to his family tradition, 
John Jr. has continued to "burn down the 
bridges behind him." 


Scotty came to the Academy from. Bethesda, 
Maryland, with a soccer ball in one hand and a 
girl m the other. He had some success with soc- 
cer but not nearly as much as he did with the 
firls. A frequent visitor to the academic board, 
cotty squeaked through even though his face 
was more often found buried in the sheets of 
his rack than in a stack of books. Scotty spent 
many weekends hunting with the Sportsman's 
Club. He loves the outdoor life even though his 
chances of bringing home a deer were much 
less than his chances of bringing home a dear. 
Even though there have been many dears in 
Scotty's life, none of their arrows have found 
his heart. Wanting very much to have some- 
thing solid to stand on, his first choice is Ma- 
rine green.

The ancient mariner of 35th company, 
"Lash," as he is commonly known around cam- 
pus, has divided his time between academics, 
sailing and his many female companions. Al- 
ways ready to accept any and all blind dates, 
he IS equally daring on the high seas, whether 
it be to Bermuda, Newport, or the Virgin 
Islands. The entertainment at our Ring Dance 
was for the most part, due to the efforts of 
Steve's hard work and never give up attitude 
in the face of adversity. Never at a loss for 
words, girls, or pad time, Lash will make an 
excellent addition to our Navy no matter 
where service selection sends him. 


Stanley, Stasho, Heinz, Great aspirations 
toward wires, but saw the light and came to 
German. Known as a nocturnal animal, seen at 
times with as many as five Camels protruding 
from his head. Can usually be discovered with 
the dim light of a tensor lamp or the sounds of 
Page or Cnapton. He can be seen only from the 
front or back. Invisible when seen from the 
side, can be allured by shiny objects, such as 
Boy Scout belt buckles. He seems to be prone 
to marching as he has been observed many 
times on cold snowy days. He is a born out- 
doorsman and can pitch a tent faster than the 
eye can follow. He is one, a species in himself, 
friendly to the human species. Potentially a 
source of great value to mankind, if his hide 
isn't hung on the wall of an Italian kitchen 


Litch came to the "Boat School" from the 
cultural center of tomorrow, Paducah, Ken- 
tucky. He was never known for accomplishing 
such tedious tasks as brushing off, shining 
shoes, or cutting his creeping sideburns. Well 
known by his friends for his ability to get the 
most for the least amount of work in academ- 
ics. His distaste for books and studies is only 
outdone for his love of athletics and women. 
Always being very careful about everything 
he enters into ana skillful dodging should be 
enough to keep him away from the Chapel 
June Week. Lit<;h only lettered once, that hap- 
pening in 2/c year and marked him as a secur- 
ity risk. He will always be remembced for his 
famous saying "the only good cure is a secure." 
But above all, Litch will be remembered as one 
of a very rare group, a true friend of all. 


"Mac," the dreamer from Big Spring, Texas, 
came to Navy fresh out of high school at the 
mature age of 18. His love of sea and air led 
him to an Aerospace Engineering degree and a 
spot on the Class "A" sailing team. An Army 
brat, Mac is the offspring of a sergeant who 
made Lieutenant Colonel. As a result, Mac 
knew most of the regs before he came, and 
memorized the rest the first day. Frustrated 
early by the extra set of eyes he constantly 
carries, Mac's service selection will be with the 


Born on the crest of a wave and rocked in 
the cradle of a hardhat, J. T. "I'm Gonna 
Punch 'em Out" Manvel came to the Naval 
Academy from the fine Northeast. He quickly 
left no doubt where his loyalties lay after 
marking his laundry tags rea, white and blue 
during Plebe summer. In Plebe year he an- 
swered the call of confusion and performed un- 
swervingly to that noble cause and remained 
mired until a little old lady from New York 
City hit him right between the eyes. Quick of 
temper, loud of mouth, and humble of no one, 
Tal made a fine competitor on and off the ath- 
letic field. Never to be lost for words in a dis- 
cussion, Tal always made his point clear. And 
to have never eaten crow was not of Tal's 
vices. To sum J. T. up in a sentence — "At 
peace with himself, at war with the world."

"Mavs, Mover, Antelope (he be woodfolk). 
The master of the "I lost my milk money" fa- 
cial expression, John has been known to use 
this "help me" defense when asked about cer- 
tain tender subjects, i.e.. Pearl, Southern Cali- 
fornia, three dimensional coordinates, etc. So- 
cially John is another "Rowdy" at parties and 
has "been known to relinquisn responsibilities 
for his actions after ten o'clock, engage in 
punch me, — punch you tag, games with stop 
signs; and generally, "He am't no rose" in the 
morning. As we see him, John is a veritable 
oasis in the desert of frowning faces. Athleti- 
cally, John had kriee troubles during Plebe 
football which ended his varsity career. Since 
then John is known mostly for his outstanding 
job as goalie on our fieldball team and his 
winners" attitude in all aspects of midship- 
man life. 


"Portnoy," the dirty old man of the Brigade, 
came to USNA after almost 20 years in the 
fleet (to hear him tell it). The duty redneck 
from Indiana was not a tough role to fill for 
the man who saw William Buckley as a hippie 
radical. Bernie found time between Cokes and 
cigarettes to study and was a charter member 
of the Sup's List greasy top 10. His long term 
and sometimes rocky association with a certain 
Baltimore Belle will surely end in marital bliss. 
He is destined to have a successful career 
under another dirty old man in the nuclear 


"The Old Man of the Sea" came from 
U-Conn. to USNA out of "curiosity." While at 
U-Conn., he learned to ski and twirl a rifle. 
The experience proved invaluable. While at 
USNA, ne learned to study, as he made several 
giiest appearances on the Dean's and Sup's 
Lists. However, as a proud member of "Club 
35," he learned the true art of "rallying" which 
he will always possess. As a beach Dum, he 
surfs and drags during the summers at the 
Jersey shore, his home. When asked about ser- 
vice selection, he agrees, "Surface Line does 
look mighty fine."

Known around the weight room as "Mac," 
pound for pound one of the strongest men in 
the Brigade. Coming to USNA at a very young 
17 and a light 180 pounds, Mac has mellowed in 
both age and weight. He was a standout in 
track in both the 35 lb. wt. and the hammer 
(his favorite) and known to be dedicated in 
both. Throughout his stay at USNA he was 
well known for his uncalmness and expert 
rallying ability. Academically known as Juice, 
Steam, guns and various other nicknames, de- 
picting his extreme interest in professionalism. 
Picked to be one of the "finest' in the graduat- 
ing class of '72. He "ain't no rose" but he be 
woodfolk — truth. 


The man nicknamed "P. J.," a native of Clif- 
ton, New Jersey, distinguished himself as a 
hardened veteran of the academic wars, a 
prodigy of the D.Q. staff, and a member in 

food standing of extracurricular P.E. clubs, 
he "New Jersey Kid" made himself known as 
a hard worker and generally gungy type, but 
never, never a "beacT" Paul isTookmg forward 
to driving the best: the hottest car available on 
land, and 35 knots in the North Sea on a de- 
stroyer bridge. By maintaining a wide "span of 
control" (as he would say), P. J. Promises to fill 
his next few years with the wild oats of 


Will is a sub man from the word go. He al- 
ways maintained above 3.0 in his push for nu- 
clear power school. No one understands why 
someone from the avid desolation of Odessa, 
Texas, would want to come into the Navy. Yet 
Will has come to us, to mainly occupy the years 
between the sheets of his rack and the nying 
bridge of a YP. The transformation is com- 
plete. Will has been 100% sailor and general 
fungy man. He talks too much. Mainly about 
is home state. One can always tell a Texan — 
although not much. So if sewer pipes are your 
bag. Will, have fun. 


Big Lou from "Miami U.," came to the 
learned institution on the bay after one glori- 
ous year of attending the "party school" of the 
Midwest. This, indeed, proved to be his Water- 
loo. From his influential background, G.A.R. 
formed a personality characterized by diligent 
concern for his classmates, the system, women, 
God, Mother, and apple pie. This bright (?), 
cheerful (?) attitude resulted in the illustrious 
Youngster year that won him a coveted award 
at the annual Christmas party. I guess you 
would say he threw in the towel! Dut despite 
his colorful accomplishments, Lou remains a 
charter member of the "AU-Nav" Club, for 
after all, "Your little friend came today." 


"Shylock" came to USNA from the thriving 
metropolis of Geneva, 111. The Phantom of 
Plebe summer. Walt is known for his indelible 
memory and his mystical quality of missing 
the "downhill flow. Walt survived near aca- 
demic disaster Youngster year, and managed 
to lose a little friend and gain a fiancee. 
Known for his dedication to Musical Club's 
Shows, the Black "N" or his B-rode, his "coun- 
selling" sessions with Ivan Smirnoff as the 
Glee Club chaplain, and his cheery attitude 
towards the Nav and life in general, Walt will 
go far as a Greyhound. His most famous quote 
— "Navy Line is might fine, and also mighty 
crowded." It might be five at sea for me, but 
Walt is a lifer. 


The son of a "bear," weighing 215 lbs., hail- 
ing from Felton, Calif., in this corner Dallas M. 
Wolf, or just DAL for short. An all-state Grid- 
ironer, Dal devoted his first two years to the 
Navy squad. With pipe fired up and a cup of 
coffee, Dal proceeded to attack the academic 
bastions witn the full fury true to his German 
heritage, and is always thrilled by any Engi- 
neering core course. Among numerous abili- 
ties, he is an avid partyer, preferably bourbon 
(a quart to start), and no tailormades please. 
On weekends Dal spends his time with nis lit- 
tle woman, who has seemingly subdued the im- 
petuous "bear." In the meantime, Dal anx- 
iously awaits June 1972, when he will com- 
mence his naval career.

The last few years, under G.F.'s constant 
example, we have all grown more able to com- 
prehend the ultimate meaning and ramifica- 
tion of being a "hall-rat." When advice or as- 
sistance was needed, George was always there 
. . . studying. Being at an entire loss, not hav- 
ing Ann Landers for a roommate (and with his 
super OAO 3,000 miles away), the only availa- 
ble substitution after the rigors of Plebe year 
was his Aero books. (No, Q. F. didn't benefit at 
all from the fact that his never-present broth- 
er was a 1/c during that eventful year. Were 
you to read '70's grease chits, you'd be led to 
believe otherwise.) He was the nemesis of all 
4/c who were blighted by being pitted against 
this sinewy hulk for windsprints (even Mona). 
A consummate jock in H.S. he worked only one 
season before breaking into our company 
heavyweight lineup as quarterback. Despite 
his awkward and mfrequent courting, Cindy 
got her man. All her carrot pills ever did was 
to offset his iris. 


Rik came from the sun and salt water of 
Florida. Gainesville is the best hometown in 
the world. A Navy Junior, he pursued an 
Oceanography major and a nuclear power ser- 
vice selection. Rik lucked out at tea fights and 
even dragged the Secretary of Defense's 
daughter Plebe year. He survived "dirty 
Ernie" and was one of 18 to return for 3/c 
year. He soon became Dubhe's "problem 
Youngster." The only bright spot that year 
was a 4.00. His classmates will surely remem- 
ber his antics 2/c Summer. Academic year 
brought an avid Navy football fan back to 
Bancroft. His sports were slow pitch and "pay- 
dirt" on Farragut Field. Although a classic hall 
rat at Navy, Rik managed to judiciously split 
his leave time between five girls and a surf- 
board. The only mid never to sleep during a 
free morning, he doesn't know how to relax 
until the work is done. 


Ah, for the simple, innocent life of a country 
boy . . . Beetle is still simple. Not half bad. 
Dennis never gained full approval of the Ban- 
croft Hall Rodent Society; recognized only as 
the out-of-company glee-rat. Though his nu- 
merous extra-mural excursions were (usually) 
sanctioned by COMDTMIDN NOTICfE 
P1747.5G, they were ultimately disapproved by 
Beet's in-company hall rats. As the leader of 
the pack once rationalized "Not everyone can 
be a day student." Dennis remembers nis Plebe 
year as character-building, if not enjoyable; 
Youngster year — enjoyable, if not fulfilling; 
2/c Year — fulfilling, if not rewarding; and as 
a Firstie — rewarding, if not character-build- 
ing. It took Dennis twenty years to discover 
that there was only one girl for him. From now 
on, he plans to make every day a merry one. 
Love is . . . for sharing.

"Claw" came to the USNA summer camp 
straight from his hometown high school in 
Robbmsdale, Minnesota. Plebe year became an 
exciting experience for Mike when he was put 
under the expert supervision of Dirty Ernie, 
the meanest, roughest, toughest . . ., anyway, 
Ernie got rid of three of us, but Mike made it 
through. He and his classmates will never for- 
get his classic Dear John letter, and his adven- 
tures on the beaches of Ocean City. Academi- 
cally Mike lost only one battle — with Navy 
dunng his stay here, and now has finally 
emerged victorious, having won the war. Com- 
pany sports filled up his afternoons as did 
skiing and golfing during his leave periods. 
Mike will be remembered for his sense of 
humor, and the quiet determination with 
which he tackled the challenges of Academy 
life. Upon graduation he will "willfully" join 
the Navy line. 


"Foxy" ioined our ranks after graduation 
from a nign school near his home in New Car- 
rollton, Maryland. Bob had no trouble convinc- 
ing most of us that home was 20 minutes 
away, but he never did succeed to win much 
support to his claim that Maryland was the 
ideal state in which to locate the Academy. 
-Somehow he remained among the chosen few 
at the termination of Plebe year. When Bob 
could not be found in the boxing ring, one usu- 
ally found him fighting a losing battle with 
the pad monster. Bob found Oceanography to 
his liking where he could keep his head in the 
clouds with Meteorology and other related 
subjects. He found a talent in writing comput- 
er programs for everything except what stereo 
gear next month's pay would buy. With a hair- 
cut that bilges even Plebes, Bod is convinced 
that Navy Line is the only way to go. As a 
Navy Junior he's had a little more time than 
most of us to think it over. 


Harold, known to his family and some of his 
closer friends affectionately as "Bubbles," is 
the true illustration of the Southern man, pol- 
ished, soft-spoken and stubborn. Hailing from 
that fabled town of New Orleans, La., Harold 
was perfectly at easd with the highly active 
life offered at USNA. Entering into the turbid 
waters of academics, military training and for- 
mal occasions at Navy, Harold soon proved his 
potential, rising to the top in all. He achieved 
nonors in academics regularly, was chosen as 
company commander of the 36th Company and 
acq^uired an air of self-confidence and ease at 
social functions which many admired. Harold 
will always be remembered to his classmates 
for his close affinity to the rack and his 6th 
sense to be able to discover a party. We wish 
him luck in his naval career and in finding the 
"Cajun Queen" of his dreams. 


Doc is one guy who can call almost anyplace 
home, coming to the Severn during an ad- 
venturous life which began with birth in Red 
China where his parents were missionaries. His 
travels during nis Academy years included 
Singapore and the Philippines. Dan partici- 
pated in sailing year round and as a horizontal 
philosopher was an Ail-American. He discov- 
ered early that the best way to get by the sys- 
tem was around it, and he did well. Fine 
women and fine clothes are among his greatest 
interests. An excellent athlete, Dan always 
managed to come out on top in sports as well 
as in academics, where he discovered the 
Oceanographer's trade. Dan's qualities of fair 
play, hard work, and a positive attitude should 
make him a definite asset to the naval service. 


Bob, whose childhood haunt was the East 
Village, readily assumed the position as the 
company's "Classical Man." His devotion to the 
development -of his own identity and indi- 
vidualism led him a merry chase around the 
world, but always brought him back to Mother 
B's granite womb. Here, neither discipline nor 
academics deterred him. He continued his un- 
engagement to the Wench, being one of the 
few to survive with a previous O.N.O. Finals 
usually found him eating, sleeping, decorating 
"Tecumseh, but seldom studying; he never had 
to, as his perennial 3.0 usually showed up on 
the computer print out. Individualism and 
uniqueness were the keys to Bob's life at 
Navy. He participated and excelled in such in- 
dividual sports as squash, boxing, and sleeping. 
Time will prove that his greatest contributions 
to Navy were ideas, though he never failed to 
offer his services and his peculiar brand of cre- 
ativity always stood out in the things he tou- 
ched. Thus, Bob will leave the Academy as a 
success in life, and will carry to the fleet the 
traits of an achiever.

A native of Houston, Texas, Kirk came to 
the Naval Academy firm in his desire to be a 
professional naval officer. In this respect, he is 
one of the most consistent i)eople you will find 
anywhere, despite many challenf^es he has had 
to face, such as Iryinfj; to maintain some resem- 
blance of his once perfect Southern accent 
while rooming with a guy from the heart of 
New York, and convincing his girl and the 
comi)anv that graduation does not imply wed- 
ding hells. Youngster year saw even a greater 
effort as his grades improved with each semes- 
ter to the point where Kirk can take his choice 
of almost any service selection, nuclear power 
included. Never one' to relax. Kirk's thirst for 
excitement has led him from the excitement of 
rowing for Navy on the Severn to diving on 
wrecks on the ocean with the Scuba Club. Un- 
doubtedly Kirk's spirit of excellence and ad- 
venture will make him a valuable asset to the 
Navy wherever he goes. 


It was a difficult decision for him, but when 
it came to choosing between Navy and politics, 
"Nick" gave Navy the privilege of his pres- 
ence. He immediately created a name for him- 
self Plel:)e year by winning a distinguished ser- 
vice medal for sweating it out in "the i)OX." al- 
ways one with an eye for the finer things of 
life, fencing, pretty women, and his fabulous 
MGB-GT certainly took their share of his time. 
Nick has been a constant .source of laughs; his 
carefree nature has contributed a great deal to 
the morale of his classmates. Looking toward 
the future, there is no doubt that his dedica- 
tion to duty and ready wit will ensure him suc- 
cess as a boat driver. 


"Smitty" came to the Naval Academy from 
the seacoast of New Jersey. Despite his being 
the youngest age-wise, he pulled through 
Plebe year, determined to show "Bull Dur- 
ham" who the better man really w^as. Ed and 
academics met face to face during his stay at 
the Academy, but his ambition to become a 
Marine officer inspired him towards the 
heights of the Sup's List. Ed's ambition to be- 
come a Marine officer was further enhanced 
during Youngster Cruise ... Ed was the only 
one to be hospitalized because of seasickness. 
2/c Year saw Ed trapped and captured by the 
"girl next door," to whom he finally gave his 
heart and thus ended his career as "dogman" 
of our parties. Certainly there is no doubt that 
Ed will make the very most of his chosen ca- 
reer as a Marine officer, for he commands the 
respect and admiration of all who know him.

Earning his N* before most Youngsters had 
learned to stop calling the upperclass Sir, Bob 
is the only real jack from '72 in the 36th Com- 
pany. Having an unmatched competitive spirit, 
Rabbit didn't stop at just being Navy's number 
one cross country runner, but went on to the 
NCAA finals to prove his worth. His other ex- 
tracurricular activities range from sleeping to 
bulking his muscular frame to consoling his 
love struck roommate. Having a vocabulary 
matched only by Webster himself, Mona is the 
number one speaker on company debate. Aside 
from athletics, Mona has an unquenchable 
thirst for knowledge. He always reads, wheth- 
er it be newspapers, novels, the underside of 
his pillow . . . anything that has nothing to do 
witn his double major of Math and Manage- 
ment. Though one rarely catches him studying 
— somehow he learns enough to keep his 
grades consistently good. Bob has one true love 
. . . running, and an occasional interest in 
Mary Ann.

I'm sure that at some time or other everyone 
in the Brigade has marveled at the "magic" 
trees on Stribling Walk and elsewhere that 
grow those "Beat Army," "Punch Penn," 
"Bust B.C.," etc. posters, before each game. 
Well, believe it or not, the trees don't really 
grow those signs; they come from the oriental 
mind of C. W. C. W. is the Brigade token Fili- 
pino and resident artist. As a 21 year old Plebe 
Chuck stirred our young hearts with frightful 
sea stories of love and war. A perennial mem- 
ber of the "squad" (you name one and he's 
been on it), a connoisseur of Academy night 
life, father confessor and confessee to all, the 
creative spirit for so many happy hours (hot 
rod races mto the OOD's table, etc.) and regu- 
lar all around "dirty old man," C. W. exempli- 
fied American youth. 


As a service brat, Kip came to the Academy 
with a list of hometowns a mile long, with 
sunny Miami being his last and favorite. Being 
an avid music fiend OZ soon found his way into 
the beaters and blowers which earned him the 
title of the Phantom of 36. Never one to really 
Iweat academics Kip felt that one could do his 
best when he was well rested. Being a profes- 
sional pad rat this came easy. Always one to 
take things as they come OZ plans eventually 
to make a career with Navy Air. 


GREELAC found his way to the Academy 
from Atlanta, Georgia. Not being too much of 
a slash he soon became a master of the 2.0 and 
a member of the last minute midnight wonder 
club. While at the Academy he rapidly became 
an avid Porsche, Navy Air, and hometown girl 
fan not necessarily in that order. Service selec- 
tion finds Jim, his Porsche, and the only girl he 
ever really dated headed eventually to 


Coming from the interior of Louisiana and a 
product of a military family, Mark was already 
well equipped to cope with the brutal climate 
and rigid discipline that is indigenous to the 
Annapolis area during the summer. A "good 
man" as a Plebe, he was respected by his supe- 
riors as well as his classmates for his willing- 
ness to lend a helping hand or a sympathetic 
ear to those in need. His characteristically un- 
selfish attitude was one of his best traits. 
Being basically energetic, "Marcus" was al- 
ways one to get involved in one activity or an- 
other as evidenced by his participation in com- 
pany as well as varsity level sports with Bri- 
gade boxing ranking number one. Not leaving 
all his energy on the athletic field, he also de- 
voted a few moments of his time to the Art 
and Printing Club, and as a Company Honor 
Representative. A dedicated, hard-charging in- 
dividual, the Academy can expect to be proud 
of this lad in future years beyond graduation.

Eight Hundred Twenty-Three 


Well 72, 

that countdown of days finally hit zero. 

The last hip-hip-hoorah sounded 

and faded away. 
Those well-used p-rade caps had their soaring 
moment of glory. 

Eight Hundred Twenty-Four 

And now, 

with four years of change behind you, 
change within, change without. 

Eight Hundred Twenty-Five 

four years of preparation, training, 

Eight Hundred Twenty-Six 

four years of discipline, harassment maybe, 
all of these behind you, 

completed . . . 

Eight Hundred Twenty-Seven 

Now, suddenly, 

your room-mate, 

the man who stood next to you only yesterday, 

the group with whom you went drinking last weekend, 

yourself . . . 
Each has graduated to new and much heavier responsibilities 

than the classes and homework of yesterday. 

Eight Hundred Twenty-Eight 

As the Class of 1972 
and each new officer 
joins his ship or station, 

as the Class divides 
between oceans and services, 

Eight Hundred Twenty-Nine 

each carries away with him 

unforgettable memories of four shared years. 

Eight Hundred Thirty 

Wherever or whatever the future, 

memories and friendships will remain strong. 

Eight Hundred Thirty-One 

900 individuals 

made one through shared memories of sweat and pain, 

of good times and bad . . . 

Made one through shared experiences and comradeship. 


Eight Hundred Thirty-Two
